Raise your hand if you've ever experienced this: you worked hard to prepare for an opening night or major pitch meeting and you'd been crushing it in rehearsal. But when it came your time to shine, for some inexplicable reason, you weren't able to deliver that same level of excellence.
This isn't a situation that's unique to actors and those the creative industries – though we are likely to have a higher rate of exposure. Whatever your profession, rest assured that performance anxiety is a perfectly normal – and even potentially encouraging – experience.
