As a performance consultant Berenice delivers online and in-person talks/workshops on strategies for performance based on current research from the field of performance science.  These sessions include, but are not exclusive to, coping strategies and pre-performance routines, performance anxiety, getting into the zone, motivation, memorisation, injury prevention and physical activity/exercise.  Berenice also coaches performers from various performance domains (music / dance / acting / public speaking / chess) to enhance their performance skills.  Her work with musicians further includes one-to-one instrumental sessions whereby they are given the opportunity to perform and work directly with her on strategies that will help optimise their performance.

Between performing and lecturing Berenice spends her time in sports: running, swimming, kayaking, sailing!
