About Music Psychotherapy

Much of what I have written about psychotherapy applies to music psychotherapy as well. Additionally, in music psychotherapy, music becomes a medium through which the relationship between therapist and client is conducted. This requires no previous musical training or skills. My practice is particularly focussed on joint improvisation and reflection, (using easily accessible instruments) and songwriting. The process can be helpful in addressing a range of personal problems and can be particularly beneficial if you are finding it difficult to access or express feelings about what is going on in your life. Participating in music therapy helps you develop a sense of agency and confidence, and an awareness of your capacity for creativity.

At present I only able to offer music psychotherapy in a limited range of settings. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. I treat this part of my practice on a case-by-case basis.
