Eligible dance professionals can now access up to 6 sessions of free counselling, funded by Dance Professionals Fund and provided by BAPAM’s expert performing arts-specialist therapists.

The scheme supports those who have worked professionally for at least three years as a dancer, dance teacher, choreographer or choreologist, including retiring and retired dancers.

To find out more or book a free BAPAM health consultation, call the BAPAM Helpline or email info@bapam.org.uk.

 

The helpline is open to all those working in the performing arts with a mental or physical health problem relating to their occupation. Dance professionals who contact the team with a mental health need can speak with a dedicated BAPAM Helpline team who will take a summary of the query and book the next available free BAPAM consultation. Clinicians are experienced in working with creative professionals to understand issues affecting their work and plan the most effective next step in their pathway of care. If appropriate, following the consultation, a BAPAM therapist will provide up to 6 sessions of free specialist counselling.

Dance Professionals Fund supports people in the dance world throughout their lives. They are the leading UK charity offering financial assistance for individuals during their dance careers and into retirement, helping professional dancers, dance teachers, choreographers and choreologists.
