BAPAM Healthy Performance Training Series
Keeping mentally well: managing performance anxiety

BAPAM’s purpose is to improve health in the performing arts and support enhanced performance excellence through wellbeing and good practice.

As the largest provider of career-specific healthcare to performers in the UK, we are uniquely positioned to bring together expert clinicians, educators, researchers, artists and creators to deliver innovative training to empower the arts community to improve and maintain health throughout our creative work and learning spaces.

This introductory 2-hour session is designed for performing arts professionals and students and outlines risk factors and key strategies to sustain good mental health and wellbeing throughout a demanding career.

The session focuses on evidence-based practical skills and draws from research findings, performance psychology, and proven clinical pathways.

Participants will learn skills for optimal performance practice including pre and post-performance techniques, how to identify signs of performance and arts-career related mental health problems, how to manage problems including performance anxiety, promoting good health, and where to find help.

Tutor: Sarah Worsley-Harris - BA (Hons) Psychology, HG.Dip.P. (Human Givens Diploma), MSc Masters Degree in Occupational & Organisatioal Psychology, Level A and B in Occupational Psychometric Testing, Certificate from the Institute of Neurology in Cognitive, Clinical Neuropsychology, LRWCMD Licentiate Diploma in Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

Since qualifying in Occupational and Organisational Psychology in 1998, Sarah has worked as an Occupational Psychologist in Occupational Health Services for the NHS and Local Government, and for private sector organisations such as Toyota, Plastipak and Kronospan. Initially she qualified in Music Performance in 1984 and have since combined her careers in music and psychology as a Performance Stress Management specialist. She has worked with music students, professional musicians, performers and organisations including The Liverpool Philharmonic and The Halle Orchestra.




Research looking at health issues within the performing arts workforce consistently finds that 70-75% of our population report both mental and physical health problems, which is much higher than the national average. We are lucky to be working with a number of health and wellbeing experts who can offer training to performers across the UK, with the aim of reducing the levels of poor health and supporting performers to have a sustainable career. Working with our partners in Equity, Musicians’ Union, Help Musicians UK and Performing Arts Education Providers - who are very kindly giving us free use of training venues - we are expanding our national training programme supporting healthy performance in the UK.
