Hello! My name is Sil and I am a Registered Music Therapist and a Sexuality Educator. I know what I just wrote just sounds like a bunch of fun yet random words so allow me to get more specific:

Music Therapy

According to Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA),

Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to actively support people as they strive to improve their health, functioning and wellbeing … (and) the intentional use of music by a university trained professional … (who) incorporate a range of music making methods within and through a therapeutic relationship.

What is Music Therapy? https://www.austmta.org.au/content/what-music-therapy

My usual practice involves musical improvisation, playing instruments, jamming, singing and vocalising, songwriting and any other creative musical ideas you may want to bring to our session. I work in a psycho-dynamic, trauma-informed and somatic way to support the relationship with yourself, with music and with others.

I offer free consultation on the phone or in person to discuss what you are looking for and what I can offer to you in your unique musical endeavour.

Feel free to send your interest to sil@madtherapy.com.au

Sexuality Education

You may think it is a bit strange of a Music Therapist to also be a sexuality educator! The reason I started studying somatic sex education is because I witnessed how a lack and avoidance of sex and sexuality education impacts the health and well-being of my clients. Sexuality is an essential part of who we are and who we may want to become.

Sexuality is complex and personal, and involves understanding the sexual feelings and attractions we feel towards other people. Sexuality also forms part of our sense of self – how we feel about our body and our personal expression, including our gender identity. Everyone has a different experience of sexuality, and each one of us has the right to choose if, and how, we wish to express it.

BodyTalk (Family Planning NSW), https://bodytalk.org.au/relationships/your-sexuality/

I am trained in embodied sex education, which means I will bring in breaths, voice/sound/music and movements as educational ways to support you to befriend your body, sexuality and embodiment. I will aim to support your body-mind integration, promote body- and sex-positivity and freedom from fear, shame and guilt that your body may be holding.

I work with clients 1:1 as well as offer group workshops. Please be aware that these sessions are clothes-on and hands-off and there will be no sexual activities between any persons involved.

It is my pleasure to let you know all sessions will be held in a safe, educational and judgement free space. They will also bring the M.A.D elements: creative, playful and quirky! (and mad if you like)

Feel free to email me for a “menu”, the sessions can cover a range of topics such as the embodiment fundamentals, communicating consent, anatomy education, finding your own eroticism: sil@madtherapy.com.au

So is she legitimate enough to do this?

This is a really important question and let me assure you I am working hard to offer the most valid and reliable service I can, so far via these qualifications and accreditation:

  • Registered Music Therapist, Australian Music Therapy Association

  • Master of Music Therapy from University of Melbourne

  • Bachelor of Music (Performance) from Sydney Conservatorium of Music

  • Currently completing a Certification from Institute of Somatic Sexology
