Andy Evans MA. (HCPC, BAMT)
Hi, my name is Andy and I am a Clinical Music Psychotherapist. I am registered with both the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Music Therapists (BAMT).
I can provide Music Therapy sessions for 1:1 small groups or families. There is no requirement to be musical to engage in music therapy, however, I am also able to provide talking therapies i.e; Psychotherapy or Counselling if you would prefer. Sessions can be based in our Therapy Centre in Narberth or I offer a visiting service. I also offer a remote service at present with a choice of either online or telephone Counselling. My practice is person-centred and I follow a psychodynamic approach.
Music Therapy is accessible to all and has diverse applications. I specialise in Mental Health (Including Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, feeling sad), and Dementia.
I work with PTSD, Miltary (ex and serving) Blue Light Services, NHS, British Red Cross, and Care Sector Workers. You can also refer yourself or a family member for therapy. Please call for an informal chat, and I will talk you through the process.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified with a MA in Music Therapy from the University of South Wales.
Prior to qualification, I have worked as a Music Teacher and a Military Musician. Both previous careers have given me a greater insight into life's challenges and hopefully, better equip me for helping others through their struggles.
One of my current roles is working with the Psychosocial Team, British Red Cross.
