I have been working with sound healing for around 20 years, since first experiencing a didgeridoo massage. I have been offering experiential workshops around the country and at festivals for a number of years.

I completed my training in the BAST method of sound therapy, studying one to one Holistic Voice Therapy, Drum Therapy and Group Voice Therapy and have found this method to be deeply transformative with clients on all aspects of being physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I am both humbled and excited by its potential for very deep work.

I have a degree in music and psychology and have also undertaken training in counselling, NLP, hypnosis, reiki-seichem and Lifemusic. I also teach piano, cello and voice.

I am very excited to soon also be offering Gongs and Himalayan bowls for one to one treatments and group Sound Baths. Please enquire for details.

Cancellation Policy: One to one sessions to be paid for on booking. 48 hours minimum notice is necessary for cancellation otherwise session must be paid for. Workshop bookings must be paid by the Earlybird date stated for discounted price. Refunds will be given if I have to cancel a workshop.

Holistic Voice Therapy One to One

1hr30min £60.00
1hr £40.00

The BAST method of Holistic Voice Therapy is a one to one treatment consisting of Passive Voice Therapy treatment and dynamic breathing, vocalisation, visualisation and movements (depending on need and relevance) called Vocal Processing Techniques (VPTs). A client may have just a passive treatment, just an active treatment or a combination.

A passive treatment is very much like a personal voice bath. After a sharing and exploration of what you are bringing to the session and would like to work on, you are invited to lie comfortably on the couch while I create a series of vocal tones and overtones, designed as a treatment personal to you. People often find this a very enjoyable, relaxing experience and may enter into a very deep state similar to that of meditation or just before falling asleep and may experience feeling warm, seeing colours, having imagery, a distortion in time or personal insight as they enter an altered state of consciousness. You are invited to observe your experience as a compassionate witness during the treatment.

At the end of the treatment I will play a series of grounding percussion instruments to gently bring you back from your relaxed state and afterwards you will be invited to share how that was for you. If we are doing a partly active treatment I can then offer some exercises (VPTs) for you to do in the session and or as homework between sessions, depending what is felt will be of most benefit to you.

A purely active treatment involves a similar sharing and exploration of the issues Holistic Voice Therapy One to Onebrought to the session and then I can offer exercises (VPTs) for you to do using your breath, voice, visualisations and movements depending on what I feel will be most helpful to explore, express and transform.

Working in this dynamic way with your own voice really can be truly powerful work.

Drum Therapy One to One

1hr30min £60.00
1hr £40.00

The drum is ancient, universal and almost certainly the oldest instrument in the world. It has been used ceremonially and shamanically in almost every culture. Its power is strong and deep.

The BAST method of drum therapy includes Rhythm of Life, Drum Journey and a wonderful Drum Massage.

Drum Massage can be particularly helpful for pain conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. As well as described as being very relaxing, calming, focusing and centering, clients report enjoying the feel of the strong vibrations on their body.

The Rhythm of Life is a wonderful tool to explore the feel of your day to day activities and to then prescribe a specific therapeutic rhythm which I will play in the session and which you can then use between sessions (you do not need a drum but if you have one it is great to use to play this for yourself). The rhythm can be played close to the body or as in the drum journey, played away from the clients body.

All the techniques help induce an Altered State of Consciousness (ASC), a deep trance-like state, akin to deep meditation during which numerous physical and psychological benefits can occur.

Drum therapy can be good for muscle or bone pain, arthritis, muscle tension, stress-related symptoms, general relaxation and physical pain. I have also had success helping clients with insomnia. A recent study by Barry Bitman MD showed drum circles a group of people drumming together boosts the immune system and actually increases cancer killing cells. Other studies have shown group drumming to have a calming, focusing and healing effect on autistic children, and alzheimers patients.

I help you explore how your issue is manifesting in Drum Therapy One to Oneyour system and plan a treatment accordingly. You lie down on the therapy couch while I play the drum and depending on method used will either play the drum nearby or close to your body as in eg drum journey. Afterward I invite a sharing of your experience and offer you a homework rhythm and or breathing exercise to move forward.
