Terry Hyde MA MBACP
Terry started dancing at age 6, won a 5 year scholarship to the RAD and subsequently attended the Royal Ballet Upper School, joining the Royal Ballet at age 18. He then moved to London’s Festival Ballet (now ENB) as a soloist. Having left London's Festival Ballet after 3 years, he started performing in musicals in London’s West End, in Film and on TV.
On retiring from performing, Terry set up a Business Manager for people in show business. On selling the business 15 years later, he retrained as a psychotherapist attaining a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy & Healing Practice validated by Middlesex University in 2012.
Terry combined his two passions, dance and psychotherapy, when he set up www.counsellingfordancers.com in 2017. He wanted to help dancers with their emotional and mental health issues. Having had a career as a dancer, Terry has a great understanding of the needs of dancers’ mental health issues. His one-on-one sessions are via Zoom and therefore he sees clients from around the world.
Terry presents interactive Mental Health Self-Care Workshops for Dancers. These proactive workshops are to help support dancers’ mental wellbeing teaching them resilience and how to be mentally fit and emotionally strong. In 2021 Terry created the Help4Dancers app.
