Music Therapist

Music Therapist

Having already established a very successful career as a professional harpist, Christina later followed her other passion to train as a music therapist.

Christina trained at Roehampton University and for the past 15 years has had experience of working in many different areas. Her first post was working with children and their families at Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust in the West Midlands. She has since worked as deputy music therapist for Penny Brohn Cancer Care in Bristol, and for Otakar Kraus Music Trust and Eastwood Family Centre in South West London. She has worked with children and families for Chroma (Sing&Grow) and is currently supporting clients of all ages and abilities at Richmond Music Trust. Her work now covers those on the autistic spectrum, addressing emotional issues such as attachment in adoptive families, and work in areas of bereavement and other loss.

Christina has led creative arts workshops for AfterAdoption in collaboration with dance movement therapist Victoria Thompson, and is registered with the British Association of Music Therapists and the Health & Care Professions Council.

Christina is also a professional harpist.
