If you have barriers to expressing yourself, understanding emotions or feeling creative, music therapy could be for you. My primary aim is to get to know you for who you are and, through sensitive verbal and musical interaction, celebrate your personality, creativity and potential. Whatever challenges you experience, I hope to give you a sense of connection, acceptance and understanding.
Thame Music Therapy is an inclusive and welcoming service where sessions are engaging and always tailored to individual needs. Music therapy offers opportunities for free improvisation, song writing, musical games and reflection. It can be particularly beneficial for those experiencing anxiety, social isolation and difficulties expressing themselves.
I welcome new referrals, start with a free initial phone consultation and offer a reduced-cost introductory session for you to get to know the environment and see if this form of therapy suits you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch!

I don't have a 'typical client,' but I often work with people who experience barriers to communication, high levels of anxiety and social isolation. This includes people who have struggled with talking therapies and want to access a different form of therapeutic support. I work in a client-centred manner, sensitively collaborating to establish the most helpful way that clients can use sessions.

I work in a non-directive and person-centred way, which means that I take my lead from the client each session. I take into account mood, energy and emotional state on any given day, as well as any ideas or suggestions that they come up with. This encourages authentic, spontaneous and flexible interaction. For those who need it, I facilitate structured activities and establish clearer routines.
