I qualified as a music therapist (University of Bristol) in 1995 following a music degree, PGCE (early years) and several years teaching in mainstream schools. I have worked as a music therapist in a variety of settings for over 20 years including special schools, Honeylands Child Assessment Centre,  CAIRB unit, adult and child palliative services and independent family work. I am HCPC registered and a member of the BAMT.

I currently work part time as a member of the Vranch House therapy team, both in school and running a music therapy under fives outpatient service. I run individual and group music therapy sessions dependent on need. Through music therapy children are able to express their emotions and develop communication and social skills through musical play. Music Therapy can also allow children with limited physical skills to experience the sensation of movement through music and vibration. Sessions also support children's physiotherapy programmes. Music Therapy is an extremely positive therapy for children, parents and staff, as it focuses on what the child can already do, the child taking the lead, and can interpret even the smallest responses through music. Each session brings something new - which is why I love it !
