Beth is one of the founding directors of Mind Fitness and co-author of the hugely successful Unlock You and Emotional Health for Performers.

Beth’s background is in theatre having worked for 15 years in mainstream before founding Prospero Theatre in 2015, an inclusive theatre company working with actors with disabilities and mental health challenges.

Beth says:

‘Feeling stressed is part of the human condition but there are simple techniques we can employ to take us out of the stress response and back to a place where we can think clearly and perform well. We can use simple techniques to retrain our brain so that it doesn’t get tangled up in the negative, and gradually we can replace them with positive thoughts and emotions.

In other words you can learn to get out of your own way and achieve your potential.’
