“I am a Therapeutic Sound Practitioner who fell in love with sound at the age of 10, becoming captivated by the amazing sound of the majestic gong its complexity of sound energy strength, movement, harmonics and frisson. I was completely hooked.
When listening to music I found that I would focus in on single sounds or notes of songs /instrumental pieces. I would then record these sounds, deconstructing the original music and constructing my own tapes of ‘magical sounds’.
As years went by whilst in education and then later in my life, I began to realise that something was calling me to work with a sound a passion for the greater good of health & wellbeing.
Illness and stress entered my life, cancer which was like a bolt out of the blue, with it brought about some significant changes for me. Whilst receiving chemotherapy I found myself reflecting on life’s situations. Listening to my taped sounds or music would place me in a better good space. I felt more relaxed, open, lighter so much better
These wonderful amazing sounds resonated with me cutting through the resistance of my illness the harshness of my treatment.”
