The Answers You Seek, In One Place
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
A Therapeutic Songwriting session is 50 mins. A complete song can be created in that time or a song can be developed over a series of sessions at a pace that is right for the each person.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
The standard therapy rate is £60/session or £90/session if I am invited to travel to provide therapeutic songwriting at an alternative location. If people are in a financial situation where they are unable to pay the standard rates then they are welcome to contribute whatever is best for them in terms of their current situation.
DO YOU USE FREUDIAN OR JUNGIAN ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES?
I use Jungian analysis and lecture on the importance of Carl Jung's approach to Mental Health and Wellbeing at the University of the West of England. I sometimes couple Therapeutic Songwriting with Jungian Sandtray Therapy, which most clients find very helpful indeed.
DO I HAVE TO BE A MUSICIAN/SINGER?
Well, the good news is that you already are! There is no such thing as a non-musician. It is a privilege to work with people who are convinced they have no music or voice inside of them to discover, much sooner than they thought possible, that they have a wonderful singing voice and many significant songs inside of them waiting to be expressed, either privately within the therapeutic songwriting sessions, or with the world if they so choose.
