I am the Music Therapist here at Rothsay Grange and West Abbey Care Home.
After graduating from the prestigious, four-year Heidelberg Music Therapy course, I worked in Germany, Switzerland and Canada before settling down with my family in Somerset.
I bring excellence from leading European clinics for neurology and psychosomatics, in addition to a wealth of knowledge on special education.
I am passionate about delivering music therapy, which is fun and empowering. I seek to open up a creative “headspace” for Barchester residents and staff, and focus on creating and encouraging an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. Through music, I strive to increase the quality of life in the homes where I work.
I also supervise postgraduate students studying music therapy in the UK who are on placement. Residents enjoy the variety of musicianship the volunteers bring and share.
