Soesen Edan is a certified Sound Therapist with The British Academy of Sound Therapy and a member of The Therapeutic Sound Association (TSA).
Based in the Midlands, Soesen has been working with music for over 15 years, playing instruments, DJing, running music nights and festivals and traveling the globe in search of the best sonic remedies.
Having worked with artists and musicians all over the world, Soesen realised that the most special part of her work was how music and sound effected people.
Soesen originally created The Musery (The Music Surgery). This was a light-hearted festival performance whereby she gave musical prescriptions, dressed as a doctor, for anyone with an ailment. This grew into a much deeper fascination with how music and sound effects people so deeply but also in such an individual way.
After graduating from The British Academy for Sound Therapy Soesen set up her practice and now works with sound on a much deeper and holistic level as Edan Sound.
A great part of Soesen’s learning has been informed by her own personal journey through ill health and well being. This incredible journey continues and Soesen can now share her skills and experiences with others in a powerful, positive method, through sound healing.
Soesen works with groups and individuals using sound as a tool to help heal and balance. She has worked all over the country with a variety of groups and individuals including people with Autism, chronic illness, in special and mainstream schools, with members of the public, with elderly dementia patients and in hospices.
