Highly Specialist Music Therapist
NVR Association (NVRA) Accredited Practitioner and Supervisor
Jackie qualified as a Music Therapist in 2000. Since then she has worked extensively as a clinician, a supervisor, a facilitator, a trainer and a manager across a variety of health, education and charitable settings. Originally specialising in Neuro-rehabilitation, since 2008 she has worked full time with vulnerable children and their families and since 2015 most of this work has been in educational settings.
Jackie became interested in NVR through working in Pupil Referral Units and searching for a model that would help staff working in these settings to have more of an impact in supporting change for young people and their families. She is passionate about the potential of NVR to bring about positive change both for individual families and particularly within educational settings through the training of whole staff teams.
