I have been lucky enough to work with Claire for the last 8 years, as a colleague, as a co-therapist and as a supervisee. Claire has a natural warmth and honesty which immediately puts people at ease and she is very well respected and valued by the people she works with. As a therapist she marries thoughtfulness, and creativity with an ability to be strong and down to earth. Anyone who works with Claire, be they a client, co worker or parent will benefit from her vast and varied experience and her passion and commitment for her work.” – Ruth Hunston (MMT; LTCL) music therapist in 3 schools in North London and supervisor.

Claire’s sessions are great fun and flexible enough to accommodate my son’s needs; even when he is having an off day. I’ve noticed significant improvement in his communication and interaction skills. Very highly recommended. – Leanne, mother of 3-year-old boy with autism who is attending weekly Hope Music Therapy with Claire.

My non verbal autistic son started music therapy last year (he’s now 4). It is the best decision I ever made, Claire was so welcoming and made the sessions so much fun he really did find his voice from the first session.  He went from not saying much to singing songs all day long. The therapy has also taught him to participate in songs and play instruments with me, allowing me to join in is something he rarely did before.” – Sarah mother of 4 – year old boy with autism who is attending weekly Hope Music Therapy with Claire.
