What is Sound Therapy?
Sound Therapy uses sound, music and specialist instruments played in therapeutic ways, combined with deep self-reflection techniques to improve health and wellbeing.
It is now widely accepted that most illness is stress related.
Therefore treatment methodologies that promote relaxation and help reduce stress can be a very effective way to prevent and treat illness.
"Sound will be
of the future."
Trained at The British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST), and having over 20 years experience of connecting with people via sound as touring and recording musician, my method of Sound Therapy combines carefully considered therapeutic sound techniques which have been shown to affect physiology, neurology and psychology with a form of reflective enquiry (a kind of questioning). This approach has been shown to be very effective at improving health and wellbeing.
How does it work?
Using gongs, bowls, voice and other such intuitive instruments in specific ways to influence brainwave frequencies, I enable clients to enter what is known as an “Altered State of Consciousness” (ASC), a state similar to very deep relaxation of meditation.
These altered states of consciousness, around the Theta or Alpha brainwave frequency range, are perfectly natural states that are experienced almost everyday, usually when day dreaming or just before you fall asleep.
Research has shown that prolonged periods spent in these states, without sleep, are highly beneficial for mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
In this state out minds become wider in scope, softer and more malleable and many different therapeutic processes may occur.
Reflective techniques combined with the therapeutic sound really enables us to gain a deep insight into a person’s process and empower them to make life-changing improvements to their health and wellbeing.
Why Sound Therapy?
My Sound Therapy is a completely client led practice, whereby my role as a practitioner is to hold a safe space and facilitate the means for a clients own journey of self enquiry, discovery and ultimately, self healing.
Many clients have felt a bigger connection to self, and through the unique states experienced during a treatment, and the objective view of their own lives and issues that this form of therapy offers, have been able to make huge insights and growth for allowing more flow into their lives.
