Voice Study Centre To Present At ISPS 2021

Tuesday 26th October 2021

On Friday 29th October, Voice Study Centre Director Debbie Winter, will be presenting the context of two ground breaking studies conducted by Teresa Shaw and Sarah de Cruz/Mahony.

These two studies were facilitated and guided by Dr. Dave Juncos and they tested the application of Acceptance and Commitment Coaching to the debilitating condition of Music Performance Anxiety.

Debbie has said;
It is a real honour to be part of this process and it evolved as a result of the creativity and inspiration of the practitioners involved.

The fusion of knowledge and experience from Dr. David Juncos enabled a practical solution to be delivered and tested within a research context.’
