Mrs Maria Radoje
Maria Radoje is an experienced Music therapist with a special interest in Guided Imagery and Music, a type of music psychotherapy that uncovers unconscious processes, which she uses in working with performers by exploring the person’s relationship with their instrument or chosen medium of expression, encouraging relaxation skills, and challenging unhealthy thought processes. Maria has experience working with trauma, depression and anxiety, and people experiencing acute phases of mental illness, as well as in the recovery phase. She also has expertise in working with people with dementia and those with physical disabilities, and has helped clients manage alcohol misuse, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and trauma. She trained in music performance at the Royal Academy of Music (cello) and has worked as a freelance musician, teacher (currently at The Academy of Contemporary Music) and composer. She has more than 20 years’ experience as a professional music therapist working in mental health settings and with people with learning disabilities and dementia. Sessions are available in London and online.
