Departed X Factor star Tamera Foster went to a Milton Keynes hypnotist for help to remember her song lyrics, the Citizen can reveal.
The 16-year-old singer was treated by Christian Baker, who works at DermaSpa in Broughton.
Christian received an SOS call from the producers of X Factor after Tamera had forgotten her lyrics during live performances for two weeks running.
He was invited to meet Tamera at the contestant’s house and use hypnotherapy to soothe her anxiety.
He said: “I was delighted to receive the call and more than happy to help out. Having never met Tamera I wasn’t sure how it would go, but she was a great girl and a real pleasure to work with.
“She is a talented girl who is clearly very passionate about music. Unfortunately she was starting to suffer with performance anxiety which was causing her to have a block about remembering lyrics.”
Christian worked with Tamera four times and his efforts paid off when on Saturday she remembered the lyrics to both her songs.
Sadly she was voted off afterwards – but is tipped to have a shining career ahead as a recording artist,
She described the hypnotherapy as “really cool”.
“It really helped me out. It just got me into a positive mind-set and boosted my confidence,” she said,
Tamera is one of a list of celebrities helped by DermaSpa, which offers beauty treatments and therapy.
