Maia has a diverse background, spanning professional roles in public, private and charity sectors, encompassing media/media liaison, public education, photo-journalism, sales, training/trainer assessment and for a decade running her own public relations consultancy. She is also a qualified Life Coach, Neuro-Linguistic Programming Master Practitioner and a published author (non-fiction).
With formal musical training in her childhood Maia was described as a gifted violinist, though preferred improvisation to structured music and so forged her own path, eventually leading to a more intuitive and unconventional style of composing and performing her own music.
Her life took an unexpected 180 degree turn into full time music in 2008. Her journey into therapeutic sound evolved through an ever-deepening exploration of music and people’s response to it. She has created and produced five albums of therapeutic music and offers individual/group sound sessions and immersions.
Now her predominant role is as Creative Director of Bad Vibe Busters, but she considers therapeutic sound an essential ingredient for Bad Vibe Busters as well as in her personal life.

If you have the opportunity to close your eyes and listen for a few minutes (headphones or high quality speakers essential), you might be surprised at how much it contributes to your day!
