In the performance arena Sean helps singers, actors, and dancers to perform their craft free from debilitating tensions. His own personal training and experience as an actor, singer, dancer, director also gives him the know how to deal with issues around ‘performance’ in the business environment, and to do so whilst managing anxiety which often accompanies giving presentations.
