Before I became a clinical psychologist,

I was a patient

Two subjects. One room.

Verbal communication. Mental notes.

Writing has always been a way of expressing my anxieties. Three years ago, music became a way to contain them.


Music enables thinking, representing and forming inaccessible and elusive thoughts. Just as Psychotherapy does.
