You have to pass an exam, to deliver a speech or to be the best…and suddenly you are overwhelmed by anxiety. A huge fear that you will fail. That you will not live up to expectations, whether they are your own or those of other people. Psychiatrist dr. Esther van Fenema knows all about it. She started a special center for musicians who are afraid to perform on stage, also frequented by CEO’s and top sporters. In her opinion, young people are more prone to stress and less able to cope with setbacks. Everybody has to be perfect these days. She suggests simple rules to improve your mental health: sleep and eat well, be prudent with drugs, do some physical exercise.

 Dr. Esther van Fenema is a psychiatrist, violinist and gives her opinion in various media. In 2018 she published the book Het ontstemde brein. She also interviews people in Café Weltschmerz and presented RTL 5 BN’ers in Therapie.
