My name is Paco and I am a certified music psychotherapist.
I am based in Bristol, but I also provide music therapy sessions with clients in many locations online. I have collaborated with companies and organisations in Spain, France and the UK, where I work for the NHS and in private practice.
For nearly 20 years, I have successfully helped adults, children and young people to make the most of their strengths and resources in order to overcome difficulties, understand what they may be going through, and to regain a greater sense of self-confidence and enthusiasm in their lives.
My practice is guided by diverse evidence based psychological approaches and reviewed by a music therapy supervisor. I love the challenge of designing tailored, creative techniques that make each session unique and that can inspire people to engage and to make positive changes.
Music therapy services available
Face to face
Regular weekly sessions in a music studio in central Bristol, UK.
Sharing in the same room allows us to use live music, exciting instruments and high quality sound equipment to directly experience sounds and vibrations.
I work from diverse locations, including therapy rooms, music rehearsal rooms and recording studios.
Online sessions benefit from online audiovisual technologies to feel supported by engaging in music production and songwriting exercises, use of virtual studios and music therapy techniques such as guided music meditation.
You only need a device with a stable internet connection and a headset.
& other requests
I run workshops and regular therapy groups with diverse collectives.
I like the challenge of desinging tailored workshops that use music therapy exercises and techniques to meet the specific needs of your group.
