Hi, my name is Andy and I am a qualified 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 small groups, one to one 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 PTSD, uniformed services, Mental Health and Dementia.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified with a MA in Music Therapy from the University of South Wales, in 2019.
Prior to qualification, I have worked as a Music Teacher (15 years experience) and as a Military Musician (8 Years experience). Both previous careers have given me a greater insight into life's challenges and hopefully, better equip me for helping others through their struggles.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
