Getting the right help at the right time is key, getting the wrong help when you need help can be just as damaging as to not getting any help.

we have compiled a small list of phone lines and places to seek help that we think are helpful in times of need, if you think we should add a number or services to this signpost please let us know.

Whatever you are going through please remember there is always someone out there to talk to.

Mental Health is many things and its worth remembering that includes Issues that drive you mental and if you don’t get to talk or resolve those, then it can lead to more serious problems late.

As BT used to say it’s good to talk.

The Cowshed

The Cowshed is a free peer health and wellness support group for all professionals in the Irish arts & live entertainment industry, tv & film, available since 2019. Collectively we have all been through a lot – suicide, depression, addiction, loss and just plain old stressed out.  Simply put, these are issues that have been in the dark in our community for a very long time. Our industry is welcoming and a haven for many who strive despite the additional pressure of managing wellness. We mind each other as best we can.

The hardest part is understanding, and there’s no better start than talking and listening.

Therapy On Tour

After loading trucks and touring the globe for over 15 years, I took a   break from tour life and went to train as a psychotherapist. My aim is to make therapy more accessible for musicians and crew on and off the road I am excited to be able to offer therapy to the industry that I love, seeing clients in London and online throughout 2020, with a view to joining touring productions from 2021.​

 

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP)​
