As a qualified hypnotherapist and anxiety specialist, Shaan White has helped many singers and actors to overcome their fears using a combination of innovative and tried techniques. These span hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and other new, scientifically-tested techniques. Blending these elements presents clients with the greatest opportunity to eliminate any irrational fears that might trigger this stage fright.
Shaan’s expertise and reassuring manner encourages clients to find ways to let go of their anxieties. With practice and persistence – something performers should be used to – clients will find they can release their fears and replace these feelings with focus, confidence and an inner calm; all of which can help them deliver their best performance.
What's a session like?
The first 5 or so minutes of a session is me getting to understand exactly what your specific issue is. The next steps involve me getting a clear idea as to how you would like to feel i.e what your goal is. For example if you are anxious about an upcoming audition a goal for you might be to feel confident during the audition. After establishing your goal I then work to relax you completely allowing any tension or stress to leave your body and then measure you on a scale of 1-10. 1 being the least anxious and 10 being the most anxious. Then it is just a case of me using my unique approach to let go off your pent up anxiety. An important aspect particularly when I work with actors and such like who audition is work on turning any so called failures into learning experiences that make you even better. Remember if something doesn't work out it doesn't mean we give up it means we keep going and learning. The whole process is relaxed, engaging and you will see results very quickly. The more you engage in the process the faster you achieve your goal.
How many sessions do I need?
Success is the sum of small efforts combined. Working on this principal I encourage all the actors/singers I work with to persevere. Particularly in the entertainment industry where it can be hard to get your break. For this very reason I encourage you to build up your momentum and in by doing this build up your chances for success. What you put in to your goals is what you get out. I advise a minimum of 4-5 sessions and encourage you to also think about the 13 week coaching programme as well for maximum results and support.
