Lyndsey is a graduate of the Music Therapy Master of Arts programme at the University of Limerick. During her training, she gained clinical experience working in acute medical care settings with children and older adults. She also independently created and set up a Music Therapy service at a mainstream primary school in Kildare; working with children attending the special education needs classroom.
Prior to receiving her masters, Lyndsey graduated from BIMM Institute with a degree in Commercial Modern Music; specialising in voice and pedagogy. She has many years experience of teaching voice, pre-instrumental and early years music.
Lyndsey is passionate about the use of the singing voice and how it can have a positive impact on the mental health and well-being of others. She is currently training to be a voice psychotherapist at the Music Psychotherapy Centre in New York, under the tutelage of Diane Austin. When facilitated correctly by a trained professional, Lyndsey believes that voice work has the capacity to create transformative experiences and become a catalyst to explore and heal past traumas.
Lyndsey had her final master’s thesis research published in the journal Dementia. The research explored joint working between Pastoral Care professionals and Music Therapists in an Irish hospital; to improve person centred care for people with Dementia.
