Client Session: Resolving Music Performance Anxiety
Cynthia was a professional pianist whose performance anxiety was a serious block in her career. Sometimes she froze up completely during performance — the musical notes disappeared, and she even lost track of the location of the keys. After this single NLP session, Cynthia described a complete shift: at her next concert, she enjoyed each of the performances that came before her, and then played comfortably when it was her turn. She only recalled her previous anxiety after someone commented on how calm she looked. She also taught the same process to one of her students to resolve her performance anxiety.
