music therapy

Jess Clarke MA, BA (Hons)

I am a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered music therapist.
 
Music therapy is an established psychological clinical intervention, which is delivered by HCPC registered music therapists who build therapeutic relationships with clients to support people whose lives have been affected by injury, illness or disability through supporting their psychological, emotional, cognitive, physical, communicative and social needs. 

 

The benefits from music are profound and innumerable. Music can help us relate and connect to others and build stronger connections within ourselves also, allow for self expression and become an outlet of emotion, rebuild neural pathways, elicit memories,

improve cognitive function and reduce anxiety amongst many other things.   


I am a self-employed music therapist, working within a variety of settings including mainstream and special schools, homes, hospitals and care homes. I use a psychodynamically-informed, person-centred and culture-centred approach to my therapeutic work and adapt sessions to meet the needs of each individual. 

My HCPC registration number is AS16846. I hold an enhanced DBS check and have both professional indemnity and public liability insurance. I am also a member of the British Association of Music Therapy (BAMT).
