Being a Sound Therapy Practitioner is the most recent step of my journey to live a more conscious and mindful life. I am a musician, so sound and music have always been a big part of my life. As soon as I experienced my first Gong Sound Bath, I knew that I had found my path!
I started my working life as an electrical engineer and have a very logical, scientific mind. For that reason, I studied with the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST), who’s approach to sound therapy is research led. I also hold qualifications in Mindfulness and Meditation.
Prior to studying Sound Therapy, I trained as a Life Coach. I now use a mix of therapeutic sound, mindfulness, reflection and coaching techniques, to help people gain a richer understanding of themselves, their health and their wellbeing.
As well as hosting sessions in the general complementary medicine and wellness sector, I have facilitated sound sessions in hospices, special needs schools, and the corporate sector.
On many occasions, I have been astounded at the profound benefits people gain from the sound therapy sessions. There are numerous and diverse opportunities to improve client and patient outcomes. For that reason, I was delighted to accept the invitation to be a non-executive board member of the TSA.
I am looking forward to promoting the benefits of all forms of therapeutic music and sound to a wider audience. Working alongside sound healers, training schools, other holistic practitioners, charities and not for profit organisations, plus mainstream medical and healthcare providers.
