Belinda Lydon

Belinda Lydon is a HCPC registered Music Therapist and singer based in Neath, South Wales. Following her Music degree from the University of Bristol, she gained her Masters in Music Therapy from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London in 2009.

Since then Belinda has worked in NHS mental health services in London and in various educational and community settings with children and adults with autism and learning disabilities. As a mother of two, Belinda is also interested in working with parents and babies and believes it’s never too early to start introducing music to little ones. She specialises in using her singing voice to connect with people.

As well as her clinical work, Belinda has been involved in international research projects, presented papers at conferences and works as a supervisor to other Arts Therapists and trainees. Belinda has also been a Trustee and Professional Development Officer for the British Association for Music Therapy since 2012. She is currently in the early stages of training to be a Parent-Infant Psychotherapist at the School of Infant Mental Health.

Belinda takes referrals for Music Therapy from individuals, families and organisations in the Neath and Swansea area. She is part of the group of therapists at the Magnolia Centre for Health and Wellbeing and will be running Little by Little therapeutic music sessions for babies and toddlers there from June 2018.
