Hello, I am a music therapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), working across North-West Wales and online. My approach to therapy is psychodynamic, Neurodiversity-affirmative and person-centred. I specialise in working with neurodivergent people (with autism, ADHD etc.) and am experienced with working with people of all ages with learning disabilities, dementia, mental health difficulties, experience of trauma or life-limiting illness. Music is a universal language, which can offer a way to communicate beyond words in our sessions, whether instead of or as well as speech.
Music therapy is an interactive psychological therapy which uses creative methods such as playing music, singing together, listening to music, song-writing, and talking, to address a range of goals, such as reducing anxiety, low mood or stress, exploring identity issues, processing trauma, increasing self-confidence and developing creativity and wellbeing.
You do not need to have any musical experience to have music therapy, and I offer a warm, nurturing and relaxed approach, with a deep acceptance of diversity and difference, and a co-creative and adaptable therapeutic method. I offer a free 20-minute Zoom consultation session if you would like to meet me and ask any questions you might have.
