Making music used to be fun...

(and it doesn’t have to be an anxiety-inducing burden now)

Evidence-based coaching for professional and aspiring singers and musicians who want to turn the stage back into their playground

If you’ve come to dread getting up on the stage, even though that’s been your passion and art for so long, you are not alone (though it might feel like you are).

Welcome! I’m so glad you are here.

Hi, I'm Gökçe.

As a trauma-informed coach,

I help musicians overcome performance anxiety,

self-doubt and perfectionism so they can

perform confidently under pressure and love their craft again.

Mental wellness and resilience   they are what performers need to build joyful, sustainable careers, but nobody is teaching this in music school.

My specialty is in supporting performers to cultivate an unshakable sense of wellbeing, so you can
 enjoy a long and sustainable career in performing arts. 


Ways to Work with Me

Singers & Musicians

Let’s work one-on-one to quiet the nerves and the judgemental inner voice that says ‘you can’t do this’ so you can perform confidently under pressure and love making music again.

Music Teachers

Join the upcoming program for music educators to understand performance anxiety and support your students with self-consciousness, nerves, and fear of judgement.


Evidence-based music performance anxiety and mental resilience support workshops and seminars for professional and educational institutions.

Gökçe is such a warm, empathetic person, with such a clear logical perspective and approach. Her programme proved so beneficial to me in more ways than I could have imagined. There would be an explanation in her programme for every issue that I experienced, which made me feel I wasn't alone in this.


I'd never experienced something like this before and I was so impressed with the whole process. I highly recommend Gökçe to anyone dealing with performance anxiety.
