Victoria Olaman BSc (Hons) Podiatrist.

Adrienne Woods. Sound Therapy Meditation. 

Sound therapy, and meditation helped me during a difficult period in my life when I was ill, anxious and in pain. I learnt how to relax and felt the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. This personal experience underpins my passion as a sound therapist


I began my journey with sound therapy over 10 years ago. I have studied to Diploma level, training with (The British Academy of Sound Therapy), (The College of Sound Healing) and (The Wheater Sound Academy).


A combination of therapeutic sound, visualisation techniques and the breath are utilised within my meditation practice to promote relaxation. Himalayan bowls, crystal singing bowls, the powerful resonance of the gong, bells and chimes are used. The gentle sounds of these instruments have a way of filling the mind with their beauty and bringing a feeling of peace and calm to your whole being.

My meditation sessions are for everyone, for those new to meditation and for those with a developed practice.


For your comfort please bring a yoga mat, blanket and pillow if you can.

The practice is simple and easy and fits in with my busy family life. It's my passion to teach and share this with others who are looking for peace and fulfilment in a busy modern world"
