Hello and Thanks for dropping by!
I am an experienced classically trained professional musician originally from Wales. I have worked with many top symphony orchestras and have worked at several top UK schools. I am also a psychologist and have worked for the NHS in England and Scotland as well as for several private organisations and individuals.
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 also at Perry Court Steiner School in Canterbury.
I studied psychology at the University of London, University of Surrey & Sheffield University. I was awarded British Psychological Society Membership, GM and GBR in 1996. I have worked for the University of London, Great Ormond St Hospital, NHS Grampian, for several English and Scottish 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.
