‘I had high anxiety levels around performance before I started this program – I felt tied up in knots, nervous and believed it was inevitable that I would make every mistake possible when having to perform. I am now more centred and steady…more believing in myself, and able to enjoy performing! I am ‘in the music’ now, trusting that the music will ‘do itself’! I recommend this program to all musicians – it’s invaluable!’ (Cellist)
BE AN EXTRAORDINARY MUSICAL PERFORMER!
As a musician, singer or performer do you….
…love your art form…but insecurities or diminished confidence get the way?
…love performing but are burdened by perfectionism, self-doubt or negative self-judgements?
…dread performance anxiety or stage nerves…
…have the talent, the technical skills and the musical ability…but somehow
let yourself down just when it really counts?
…practice so hard that you become stressed or tight…or your performance worsens?
…try to ‘please others’, ‘get it right’ or ‘perform so perfectly’ that you forget to enjoy your playing/singing?
If so, your ‘mental muscles’ may be ‘out of tune’ and in need of a fitness work-out!
Your ‘Mental Fitness’ is equivalent to ‘Mental Intonation’: your capacity to be rooted in a positive mindset, harnessing the power of your ‘mental muscles’ to serve you optimally and advantageously at all times…by finely tuning in to all aspects of your playing and adapting as necessary, moment by moment with ease, flow and trust.. It is at the root of all your success and is an essential determining factor when practicing or performing. For outstanding performance, it is critical to finely tune all 3 of your instruments: your musical instrument, your ‘physical instrument’ (body) and also your ‘mental instrument’ (mind). Improving ‘Mental Intonation’ enables your mind to steer your performance with confidence, positivity, and calm, clear focus, enabling outstanding, authentic performance. It also automatically reduces tension, promoting freedom and release whilst playing.

I have worked with musicians and singers for over 30 years, addressing the physical and mental aspects of practice and performance. I offer 1-1 coaching and an ingenious Positive Intelligence intensive 7-week mental fitness program, that can be participated in on a 1-1- basis or as part of a small group. (See program details on the Mental Fitness page here)
Here is how other musicians have benefitted through mental fitness work:
‘After decades of playing and performing professionally, I was horrified to uncover how much I was still being controlled by my saboteurs. I cannot express what an enlightening and valuable experience mental fitness coaching with Delia has been. I feel finally freed from the deadening burden of self-criticism and endless judgement and have found new nuances, emotions and expression in my playing that I had not believed possible! It is a journey to be continued… Thank you.’ (Violinist)
‘I had previously practiced by pushing myself, forcing myself to try harder, believing this is what I had to do to succeed. I’ve learned that this approach has fuelled strong self-judgements, criticism and stress, which has actually blocked my musicality and stopped me from enjoying making music! Since doing the mental fitness program I am happy to have discovered a joy and inspiration in my own musical expression and a freedom in playing. Thank you for this amazing work!’ (Pianist)
‘Practicing my violin was a bitter-sweet experience for me – something I wanted to do whilst also dreading the judgements, self-doubt, fear of not being good enough…and a need to be perfect that almost crippled me and ended my career. This 7-week program has shown me that by focussing on my negative self-talk I have been strengthening this and creating a downward musical spiral. I am now armed with new mental tools and skills to allow my playing to be led by my new-found positive ‘Sage’ mindsets. Practicing is now an exciting process of endless discovery and I can now perform with enjoyment and real presence’ (Violinist)
‘I am so glad to have learned new ways of relating to my voice. The mental fitness program has enabled me to be kinder to myself and to allow greater vocal relaxation. Interestingly I noticed that my choir members also began to relax and enjoy themselves more and magically, the overall sound of the choir has improved!’ (Singer)
