About Kadri

I am a registered Music Therapist, currently offering online sessions.

Having lived in London and Berlin throughout my 20s, I know what it means to be struggling with language and expressing oneself in a completely new environment as well as integrating into an unfamiliar culture.

I have worked with a range of clients: infants, children, adolescents and adults with various needs including mental health issues, neurological disorders and learning difficulties. I am now working more specifically with individual young adult and adult clients with substance misuse, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, LGBTQ and self-esteem.

In the sessions, music is used as a way of expressing oneself. In addition to talking, we may use poetry, song-writing, improvising, singing, or music listening to explore any difficult feelings that have arised.

Music can put a form onto the emotion where words lack. With the help of a therapist, these feelings can be explored in a safe space in a non-judgemental way both verbally and non-verbally, depending on the client's needs.

Queer-positive, body-positive, feminist.

My Approach

My approach is psychodynamic which is focused on the past experiences to understand our current behaviours and patterns. We may look at family relationships and childhood experiences to better understand your conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings.

My approach is client-centred where you 'lead' the session since you are the expert on yourself. You don’t need to have musical skills in order to participate in music therapy. Music can be a means of expression where words lack.

Music therapy uses a musical connection to improve mental wellbeing and facilitate communication through the engagement in live musical interaction between client and therapist. This connection can help develop communication skills, improve confidence and independence, enhance self-awareness and awareness of others, improve concentration and attention skills.

I believe that trust is at the center of every therapeutic relationship between client and therapist.
