After completing a music degree at Hull University, Alison went straight on to the Guildhall School of Music where she trained as a music therapist., qualifying in 1987. She then returned to her home city of Nottingham where at the time there was no music therapy provision.
She established a still thriving music therapy service for adults with learning disabilities within the NHS and was instrumental in setting up the Nottingham branch of a national music therapy charity.
Following her move to Worcestershire in 2002, Alison joined the team of Music Therapy Works the following year. Here her role has included individual and group work with both adults and children with learning disabilities, as well as presentations and workshops, in a variety of residential and educational settings.
