Music Therapy Reimagined

One Show interview on the arts and mental health

A spectrum of music therapy from an 

HCPC Registered Music Therapist


Fellow of the Association for Music and Imagery

​Maria can provide a richly creative therapeutic environment to help explore difficult experiences and memories, as well as developing your strengths and inner resources. She believes in a trauma informed approach with an emphasis on compassion, empathy, and respect, and aims to help the people she works with – whether musical or not – to understand themselves better, build confidence, and improve their relationships.


"Music, as a structured envelope of sound, is probably the most effective and safe opener to the doors of the psyche. It reaches beyond personal defenses to the realities and beauties of the person. Music gives access to the discovery of inner strength, uncovers the potential for creativity, and manifests ways in which life can be lived from a center of inner security."

Helen Bonny

Active Music Therapy helps with self-expression and gives an experience of being heard and responded to as you co-create the music with the therapist

Testimonial by 'Anette,' Journalist:

"I started working with Maria at a difficult point in my life. My mother had been slowly disappearing after being diagnosed with dementia and I was struggling with the complexities of grieving for someone who was still physically there but lost in so many ways. I felt numb and stuck. Within a few weeks of working with Maria my mother died. For a long time, I still felt lost, but the gentle, non-confronting approach of the Guided Imagery and Music gradually helped me to regain confidence and a sense of purpose. After a year of working together I had the confidence to start planning for the future again after a long period where even the simplest daily chores had seemed overwhelming.”
