Hello and Thanks for dropping by!
I am an experienced classically trained professional musician originally from Wales and a former member of the BBC Radio Symphony Orchestra. I am also a qualified performance psychologist and have worked as a researcher for several companies as well as for individuals needing help with performance anxiety.
As a professional musician, I work as a session and studio musician for television, films and computer game companies. I also perform as a soloist for formal events, weddings, private and corporate events and I pride myself on providing a reliable, professional service.
In childhood I studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Junior Conservatoire with members of the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra from a very early age; regularly performing for BBC Cymru and BBC3 throughout my childhood.
At 17 I won a scholarship to train as a professional musician at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London where I studied flute, violin, piano & singing with members of the LSO gaining a distinction in performance. Following graduation I studied flute with Jean Pierre Rampal in Paris and piano with Peter Katin in London. I have taught music at Sherbourne School, Bedford, Harrow, Grammar and state schools in Kent and Perry Court Steiner School.
I studied psychology at the University of London, University of Surrey & Sheffield University. I was awarded British Psychological Society Membership, GM and GSMR in 1996. I have worked in research & performance psychology for the University of London, Great Ormond St Hospital, NHS Grampian & as a Strategic Change Manager for Aberdeen City Council, a consultant for several English councils, as a Guildhall Music Examiner & also as a SEN OfSTED Inspector.
I hold a Master Of Arts (distinction), AGSM (commendation), LRAM (performance), LTCL (teaching), Ad Dip Ed (distinction) & several other management, educational, counselling & psychological qualifications. I am a member of several different professional organisations.
