MUSIC INDUSTRY COUNSELLING
I offer a safe and confidential space to explore the many aspects of wellbeing in the music and creative industries. I work with people across the board – artists, writers, management, label employees, producers, roadies, light technicians, engineers – anyone and everyone - and with issues that aren’t exclusive to these industries also. These may include;
Fame and celebrity
Loss and grief
I offer private one to one counselling from a therapeutic space in Muswell Hill, London (N10), as well as an in-house service for music industry organisations seeking to support their artists and staff members.
Telephone / Skype sessions are available in certain circumstances (please contact to find out more).
Growing up in a family steeped in the music business and having been surrounded by musicians and industry folk my whole life, I have witnessed first hand the unique highs and lows that working in the industry entails.
I have acted as a spokesperson for Help Musicians and have contributed to the conversation about mental health and wellbeing in the music industry at The London Jazz Festival, The British Institute of Modern Music and The Roundhouse. I have also been a guest speaker for the LEAP residency programme run by Serious. I'm a registered member of The British Association of Performing Arts Medicine and work as an assessor and tutor on the 'Healthy Touring Programme' for artists and bands working across genres.
"In my experience, the music world is full of special people who love and feel privileged to be doing what they do. However, I have often witnessed those very same people struggle and not know how to break free from the negative feelings. Research shows that those working within the music community may be three times more likely to experience depression than those outside of it.
Defining the causes can be tricky but the reality is that industry folk are struggling.
I have seen what it is to love music so much it feels like you have to live it as much as possible. But I have also seen how challenging it can be to sustain a healthy way of living with a career in such a dynamic and emotional industry, and I am here to support."
