A powerful alternative to traditional talking therapies and a highly effective way to deal with physical, emotional and psychological pain and tension.
Using sound and music Emma has helped many people to overcome mental, emotional and physical challenges. She takes individuals into a deep state of relaxation using rhythms, tones and volumes designed specifically for each client.
This deep relaxation is beneficial for physical and mental wellbeing, but it helps us to see our patterns of beliefs and actions and potential solutions much more clearly and helps us to break unhelpful patterns of thinking and acting.
Emma Lowther-Wright is qualified at the highest level as a BAST Sound Therapy Practitioner (PL Dip. ST) and is on their development and outreach team.
She combines her study of the therapeutic application of sound and music (especially drumming) with her studies of the physiology of stress and the effects sound and music have on the physical, emotional and mental effects of stress and trauma.
She follows the BAST approach which is person-centred and combines therapeutic sound and music, guided reflective questioning and a framework model called the BAST 5Rs which empowers clients.

25 years of BAST research shows that this blended method helps many people who are looking to overcome
physical, mental or emotional difficulties including...
The method also...
Clients use one to one sound therapy for support going through a difficult time, working on confusion, negative patterns of thinking or behaviours.
The BAST method is underpinned by case studies, science and research which over the past 25years
has become respected around the world.
What happens in a session?
The Sound Therapy sessions begin with a discussion between Emma and the client to find out what the client hopes to achieve from the session and which will enable Emma to assess the appropriate treatment method for that day, choosing either Himalayan bowls, crystal bowls or drums and selecting appropriate rhythms, tempos and pitches tailored to the individual.
During the 20-40 minute sound treatment the client will be laying (fully clothed) on a massage couch, or if preferred will be sitting. The specific playing methods have a deeply therapeutic and relaxing effect on body and mind and significantly improves mood, emotional state and openness.
Following the sound treatment the client Emma guides the client in an optional reflective questioning using the 5R framework which is person centered and which helps the client to find answers and solutions.
This combination of deep relaxation and reflective questioning enables the client to see themselves, their situation and potential solutions much more clearly and to make siginifcant progress towards their goals.
Why choose this method?
The BAST method of sound therapy is underpinned by extensive research. BAST Practioner Level therapists are highly trained and regulated by the Therapeutic Association of Sound and the Complementary Medical Association to provide high quality care which adheres to best practice.
The body and mind connection is inseperable. The body affects the mind and the mind affects the body.
When we are in physical pain this affects or emotional and mental wellbeing and when we are experiencing
emotional or mental difficulties our bodies are also affected.
The method works with sound to relax body and mind while the reflective enquiry helps the client to see and explore their whole self, situation, perceptions, actions, obstacles and solutions more clearly.
How sound therapy works
The sound therapy slows the heart rate and brain waves, relaxes muscles and soothes the emotional and mental state and releases us from patterns of thought and emotion.
Once mentally, emotionally and physically relaxed our thinking patterns change and we can see our processes, patterns and choices more clearly which enables the client to achieve more from the talking aspect of the therapy session.
Humans have been using sound in this way for at least hundreds of years but now we have science to show us what actually happens in the body and brain when we hear sounds.

I had 4 sound therapy sessions with Emma and they were an awakening experience for me, Emma was able to make me
search within myself for a deeper understanding of what I’ve been going through for the last 12 months and the soundbaths really gave me some me time to focus and
Emma also gave me some valuable lessons on how to cope with my symptoms going forward.

My sessions helped me to cope better through tough times and releasse emotions, thoughts and physical feelings. I am much more self-aware and able to deal with problems much better. I found this more beneficial than other therapies. Amy
This therapy has enabled me to reflect on what I need to do in order to tackle years long issues in a positive way and to move forward. I honestly couldn't ask for a better therapist, she takes her time to deeply listen to what you are expressing and responds to that perfectly. Elizabeth
My 4 sound therapy sessions with Emma were a truly blissful experience. I feel Emma is naturally gifted in this
field and knows her subject.
She tunes into what is right for you and is truly dedicated to your needs. I got a lot from the sessions and felt they helped me with my issues. Emma is also very easy to be with and makes you feel at ease. A Soundbath with Emma is a must for healing or just for the experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Emma. Charlie H

I wasn't expecting such great results! Even if you just want a totally blissful and relaxing experience I'd recommend trying a soundbath with Emma - I swear it's the best I've ever slept, I was so chilled afterwards. Much love x Francesca
Emma has a gentle, reassuring approach and explained things very clearly. The sessions enabled me to let my intuition come out more, enabled me to relax and has given me a great framework for reflection. It really helped me. Claire
Emma's therapy helped me in a difficult period in my life. All my sessions with Emma have been a unique blend of care, relaxation and the poised attention of a therapist totally focused on helping me. Every thought and emotion has been listened to and assisted in some way by Emma. She has helped me to build trust, confidence and worthiness, and to work through bereavement and fear and to come to a belief in a positive future. Thank you, C.H
