Training, qualifications and experience
I graduated from Exeter University with a BA in Music and then in 2013 completed my Masters in Music Therapy at the University of the West of England. Following my music therapy qualification, I have worked in adult and children’s hospices as well as in private practice. In my private practice, I work with children and adults with a range of emotional needs including anxiety and trauma as well as people with a range of physical and learning disabilities.
I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am bound by their standards of conduct, performance and ethics. I am also a member of the British Association of Music Therapy (BAMT).
About the way I work
I provide individual and group/family music therapy sessions based on a person centred approach. I work with people with many differing needs and use a variety of interventions to suit each client. I particularly enjoy using musical improvisation and song writing to support my clients to express themselves. I see great value in the use of music as a creative expression and to make connections between people.
