Have you experienced performance anxiety or struggled at auditions with nerves?
Do you find the treadmill of short term contracts and the constant self-marketing sometimes causes you stress?
Whether you have encountered debilitating anxiety or simply been aware that your audition didn’t show you in your best light, our innovative workshop based training event is for you!
Sports coaches have long known the value of mental fitness. It’s time for the arts to catch up. As a performer, you know the importance of continuing to invest in your craft and the value of really good training. This is professional development that will impact directly on every aspect of your career, allowing the talents you may be hiding under the bushel of self-doubt to shine bright!
Our compelling one-day workshop examines the root causes of anxiety related to performance and the audition process. Our unique blend of Mindfulness and Cognitive Coaching will lead to positive change in the ways you think, behave and feel.
What is Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy?
REBT’s central premise is that events alone do not cause anxiety. It is the beliefs that we hold about the event that create unhealthy feelings and performance limiting, self-defeating behaviours.
The workshop also explores Mindfulness practices that perfectly complement the REBT based skills and further enhance resilience.
The skills you learn will help you to:
- Perform better
- Audition more effectively
- Sustain and Increase your motivation
- Retain a positive optimistic approach
- Reduce procrastination
This practical and popular workshop includes improvisation based team activities that are experiential, fun and highly involving.
