I am an enthusiastic and conscientious Therapeutic Team Manager and Music Therapist. I qualified with a Masters in Music Therapy from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2008 and have since developed my skills as a Senior Leader, Clinician, Manager, Superviser, and Writer in a variety of Health, Education, Community Outreach, Care and Forensic settings. In addition, I have experience of setting up, recruiting for and operating therapeutic departments and a short term alternative residential provision.
My career path to date has been focused on strategically managing therapeutic departments alongside offering individuals, young people, families, carers and communities opportunities to repair, develop, integrate and thrive. My clinical work offers young people and families a safe, secure non-judgemental space within which they can be afforded the chance to realise their full potential. I am passionate about my work and always strive to provide the best outcomes for children, young people and adults.
I am currently on maternity leave but have worked for the Music Well since October 2017. During this period I have delivered small group and 1:1 music therapy sessions to a variety of children, young people and adults. In addition, I have supported the Music Well in expanding their delivery across East Sussex.
