- There are times in everyone’s life when circumstances or situations such as bereavement, relationship break-downs or the pressures of every-day life leave us feeling overwhelmed. This can lead to a range of distressing symptoms such as anger, eating disorders, anxiety or depression.

“I was pleased to read that you help dancers with their mental health problems. Your being able to encompass their families and those involved in their lives must, I think, play a big part in ongoing support and recovery. As an ex dancer, you are in a unique position to understand the strains and stresses of dance and performance and can draw on your personal experience to help and inspire others. I wish you continuing success with your valuable work.”
