  1. Calling all dance students and their parents, dance teachers, professional dancers and retired dancers. I am writing a self-care book for dancers regarding emotional and mental health. I know what help and support I would have liked as a dancer but I am only one person. I would therefore like to hear from as many people in the dancing world, whether working or not, as to what ideas, techniques, or questions you would like answered in my book. If you have positive anecdotes of overcoming issues and how it was dealt with, please include those as well. I am also looking for therapy volunteers as case studies for the book. These will be anonymised for the book and the sessions will be free to the volunteer. I hope my book will go a little way in helping remove the shame (stigma) surrounding mental health and allow people to ask for help. N.B. Please go to my website to check my professional credentials, which you can also find on the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) website. Parents please note that I will not be offering therapy sessions to those age 15 and under and for those age 16-18, please ask your parents to contact me. Email me if you don’t want to reply openly to this post. Please share this post with others who you think may wish to contact me. counsellingfordancers@gmail.com

    Counselling for Dancers blog

    I am new to this forum and about once a week I will be posting a link to my blog "Counselling for Dancers". As you will see from my profile I was a dancer and am now a psychotherapist and now I have put the knowledge of the two careers together. Vastly more money is spent by the larger ballet companies on helping dancers with their physical issues than on their mental well being. I have recently started a website and blog and have been asked by One Dance UK to give a talk at their conference in London in November. You will see from my blogs that I will give links in weeks to come, that ex dancers who have written guest articles for me still carry emotional issues about their training and performing days. I hope that you will find the articles of interest, for which I will post individual links for each article, and hope that you will comment both here and on my blog. My first blog post link in this forum, https://wp.me/p8pUbI-G discusses whether or nor the discipline of ballet training needed from childhood is positive or negative.
