I offer an alternative form of therapy via the process of collaborative therapeutic song-writing. Music is universal, and has the power to touch all of us in a deep way. It can be a very powerful medium for anyone struggling in their life and looking for meaning and healing. You may come to me if conventional psychotherapy is not what you are looking for right now, and you would like an alternative, creative way of receiving support. You might be a musician already, or simply have a curiosity to explore what music and song-writing have to offer for you.

You may struggle with low mood and anxiety, and may be affected by issues such as relationship problems, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, trauma, sexual problems, or substance misuse.

Grief and loss are themes that often emerge, as I help you examine the shame you may have felt your whole life. My clients are predominantly from the LGBTQ+ community and are often BAME also. I have over time developed a specialism for helping those with layered intersectionality and the challenges this brings when navigating the world, which can be a lonely and difficult place. We can work together and help you to establish better relationships and a clearer sense of self.

Alzheimer's Counsellors

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

The first-line treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is often medication, which may be prescribed based on the severity of the disease. These include cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, or a combination of the two. Behavioural treatments can help people cope with emotional distress, such as anxiety or anger, and explore lifestyle changes related to housing, caregiving, sleep, and finances.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of dementia. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with treatment and plan for the future in terms of housing, support, finances, and legality.

Are there natural treatments for Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured via natural remedies (nor via medication), but some lifestyle habits can help forestall it or slow its progression. Lifestyle activities that can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease include regular exercise, a healthy, well-rounded diet, stimulating cognitive activity, time spent socializing, adequate sleep, and stress management as needed.
