Working with sound, mindfulness and yoga is my passion. I truly believe that these practices should be accessible to everyone and specialise in working within the complete spectrum of age groups and abilities. As a trained academic teacher and with a number of years experience under my belt, I also have a very good understanding of working with young people in education.
My Interest in sound therapy was born from a love for alternative instruments such as didgeridoo, gongs and drums. My style and approach to sound therapy practice has developed from my initial training with the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST) and seven years of personal and professional practice. I can still recall the wonderful moment when my deep love for music fused with my desire to help people on a therapeutic level.
The practice of sound therapy is not a new concept although has very much come into popular practice in recent years. I use therapeutic sound, often in combination with yoga and mindfulness techniques, on a 121 level or within groups. By using specific sounds of varying tone and frequency (instrumental or voice) it is possible to influence both mental and physical wellbeing. This is often practiced using the popular ‘sound bath’ approach which allows the mind and body to deeply relax and unwind through the immersion of therapeutic sound techniques. During a sound bath you are bathed in sounds produced by instruments such as Himalayan, Nepalese, crystal singing bowls, gong and percussion.
These powerful tools can help you feel a sense of inner peace and offer the opportunity for deep self-reflection. The sound vibrations produced can be likened to the physically softening effect of a gentle body massage. It also has the benefit of being applicable and accessible to anyone so is particularly useful when working with people with disabilities or health problems. Nada Sound Therapy is here to provide support, guidance and to help you towards better health and wellbeing.
