Music Industry Therapy Collective:

The Music Industry Therapist Collective believes that those working in the industry need access to high quality psychotherapy from registered and experienced psychotherapists who also have an in-depth inside understanding of how the industry works.

The music industry is an unpredictable and highly competitive environment, with many stressful elements to negotiate including: touring; career uncertainty and transitions; burnout; depression; boundary management; the pressure to gain and maintain success; self-doubt; performance/social/financial anxiety; weathering negative critique; addiction; the pressure on outside relationships; unsociable working hours; sexual assault, trauma and rape; conflict management and  difficulties within industry relationships; loneliness and isolation, to name a few. Each therapist in MITC has their own unique music industry experience and psychotherapy specialisms to help provide the best care possible
