Free Workshop on Defusing Performance Anxiety and Negative Thoughts

Karen Welling of Welling Coaching will present How to Stay Cool When Things Get Hot, a free, hands-on workshop from 11 a.m. to noon, November 7, in Brookline Village. The workshop is for artists, athletes and others that want to learn methods for calming performance anxiety and defusing negative thoughts.

“These tools can be practiced and applied to any facet of life, including athletics, public speaking, managing stress, striving for better health habits and making decisions,” says Welling. “The workshop will offer ways to identify and defuse negative thoughts, techniques for managing performance and other kinds of anxiety, and a brief introduction to Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is self-administered acupressure.”

Welling, a coach and performing musician herself, says that participants in the workshop will come away with tools and receive the comfort of knowing that they are not alone in their self-defeating thinking or performance jitters.

Cost: Free. Location: John Payne Music Center, 9 Station St., Brookline Village. To learn more and reserve a space, call 617- 623-3703 or email [email protected]
