Under the Spotlight Interview – Helen Arnold

Online interview with counsellor, Helen Arnold

As restrictions ease it could be easy to fall back into the toxic working habits we had pre-pandemic. Also, as an industry, we are dealing with the collective trauma of the past year.

So what better time to speak to a professional!

This Under the Spotlight introduces counsellor, Helen Arnold, who will answer your questions about mental health, lockdown and working as a post-pandemic arts professional.

Our Guest: Helen Arnold

Helen is a therapist based in Loughborough, currently meeting with clients face to face at her Loughborough office and working by phone and online. She believes in the ability of every individual to thrive and make positive changes. For Jozara, she has been an active contributor, writing brilliant articles like this.

“The COVID pandemic has left many people in low spirits, anxious, angry, lonely or lost. Relationships may have become strained, perhaps with new hardships and disappointments, or due to enforced separation. It may be that having adapted to remote, restricted living you’re experiencing worry about ‘getting back to normal’.”


The event format

Introduction and interview by Jozara. We will ask Helen:

  • An outline of the main issues performing arts professionals should be aware of coming out of lockdown.
  • The impacts of COVID on the insecurities for performing artists, who were already living in an insecure world.
  • What lessons and techniques should we carry forward into the post-pandemic world?


Questions from the audience

You will be able to put your questions directly to Helen, to ask for advice, recommendations or to talk about your current situation. Live Under the Spotlight events take place on Zoom. If you want to ask Helen a question, please book your place and email Dean before the start time.

After this event you will feel informed, empowered and more at ease with the idea of COVID restrictions coming to an end.
