London-based psychotherapist and former talent-agent, Tamsin Embleton is taking a deep dive into the relationship between touring and artists’ mental health in her new book, Touring and Mental Health, set to release on March 23.
The 600-plus-page book will feature insight from various health and wellness experts including therapists, artists, performance coaches, psychologists, and more.
Following her own career in the music business, Embleton found the industry’s impact on mental health fascinating and proceeded to co-found The Music Industry Therapist Collective. According to its website the group “provides a safe, confidential, trustworthy and culturally-sensitive space for touring artists to share, understand and process their experiences leading to increased self-awareness, resilience, self-compassion and self-agency.”
Through her work with The Music Industry Therapist Collective and her new book, Embleton hopes to make an impact by changing perceptions around mental health and the music industry.
