    Your Questions Answered

    What conditions does it treat?

    Listening Therapy has successfully treated a wide variety of conditions. Of these we have specifically targeted:

    Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Deafness, Epilepsy, Learning Difficulties, Speech & Voice Conditions, Tinnitus, Vertigo, Motor Development Delay, Dyslexia, Depression, Stress.

    However Listening Therapy also provides a wonderful tonic for general health and wellbeing and can help with other areas, such as, tiredness, posture and pregnancy.

    One other main area for treatment include the learning of foreign languages, where the Listening Therapy opens up one's cars to the frequency at which the other language operates, thus allowing one to hear and speak the language better. We are also involved with musical training, where the treatment enhances the musical abilities to produce sounds, by voice, or instrument.

    Sounds too good to be true! - is it?

    During treatment for many types of problems, we have achieved what would normally be regarded as cures. However, we do not normally claim that these complicated conditions will be cured by Listening Therapy. What we are saying is that the treatment will help you or your child to open up, and unlock your true potential.

    Although every case is different we are familiar with the above conditions and how they respond to treatment. After an initial assessment session we will give you an honest opinion as to how much we think the Listening Therapy can help. Furthermore, if we do not believe that we can help you in any way, we will tell you so.

    How does it actually work?

    The therapy uses sounds, mainly music and the recorded voice of the mother, which are played through a machine called an Electronic Listening Device*. The music used is mainly Mozart and Gregorian Chant and, as you listen through special headphones, your ears are stimulated, in such a way, that they are trained to listen properly. The improvement, in our listening, enables the brain to receive clearer auditory messages, which are easier to process. It also creates a tremendous stimulation to the brain, providing greater energy. The treatment normally induces relief from anxiety and stress, almost as a by-product. For specific problems, such as dyslexia or attention deficit disorder, the Therapy will work at changing the dominance between left and right ears and correcting the dysfunction of the muscles of the middle ear, allowing the client to listen correctly. This prevents the confusion, experienced by many young persons where all sounds "flood in", making it difficult and exhausting to listen to parents or teachers.

    What do I have to do?

    The Therapy sessions involve nothing more strenuous than listening to the filtered music through special headphones. However the client should be positively motivated. This does not mean having to listen to the music with concentration, as many of our clients nod off to sleep, but having a positive attitude of mind to the likely outcome of the Therapy

    What do 1 do whilst 1 am listening?

    The treatment works best if you concentrate on something else such as drawing or doing a jigsaw. Reading and writing activities will prevent the Listening Therapy from obtaining the best results and should be avoided.

    Is that all?

    In the later phases of treatment you may also be asked to read aloud in one of the soundproof booths provided for this purpose. Using our own voice in this way encourages self-listening, which an important part of the treatment.

    How long are the sessions and how many will 1 need?

    A standard session is two hours long, during which time you will listen to four separate half-hour tapes. A standard course of treatment falls into three separate phases. The first session lasts for 13 days (i.e. two hours a day for 13 days), over a 15 day period. This is followed by at least one further 7 day session with breaks of several weeks in between. An average treatment therefore can take around four or five months to complete.

    Is the treatment safe?

    Completely. We have treated babies only a few months old as well as children, adults and expectant Mums. No side-effects have ever been reported in the last forty years of Listening Therapy and the method is safe to use in conjunction with other types of treatment.

    How much does it cost?

    The full cost of the standard treatment as described above is just over £1,375.00 (incl. VAT.) and is payable in stages as you progress through the treatment.

    Is there any help with the cost?

    The Listening Therapy is not currently available on the NHS, although we have had several instances where the cost was funded by the Health Authorities.
