of Music, Health and Wellbeing, I oversee the work of the RNCM's Health & Wellbeing
Hub and teach and supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students. I also
undertake my own research. My role includes managing a interdisciplinary team
of academic and support staff, who are here to advise, inform, train, educate
and support you. It's my pleasure to work with wonderful colleagues who
collaborate daily on an integrated approach to student wellbeing.

How we can help: Our role is to support your wellbeing while you are at College, whether that’s an issue affecting your studies, personal problems that you’re experiencing or an injury or condition. We will talk to you about what you’re experiencing and then work with you to consider what you need and what the next steps for support could be.
You can choose how much to tell us about your situation – we will use what you tell us only for the purpose of getting the right support to you for your studies.
Our Lecturer in
Musicians’ Health & Wellbeing will deliver a whole range of exciting
sessions across different modules. Equip is a series of wellbeing workshops for
which you can sign up whenever you want to. We cover many wellbeing topics such
as physical wellbeing, nutrition, sleep and prevention of injury, relaxation
techniques, motivation, prevention and management of performance anxiety,
focus, concentration and memorization strategies.
Counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore any issues
you may wish to talk about with someone who is not directly involved in the
situation you are trying to deal with. This may be about anything that is on
your mind, or which may be affecting you and/or the way you relate to others.
The College counsellors won’t pass judgement or give advice
but try and assist you to find your own solutions. Their main concern is to
help you discover a more fulfilling and satisfying way of leading your life.
The service is free of charge and anything you choose to bring
to counselling will be treated with confidentiality.
