Audio-Processing Difficulties

We hear with our ears but we process sound or listen with our brain. Not everyone processes sound in the same way but it is possible to improve how we recognise, process and respond to sounds thereby improving quality of life.

Tomatis® Method

The Tomatis® Method uses the natural auditory pathways and the same mechanisms as mother nature to stimulate different centres in the brain. Programmes use rapidly alternating filters on music from Mozart and Gregorian Chants, as well as the human voice.

For over 60 years these programmes have demonstrated lasting changes in a person’s listening skills and have greatly improved people’s lives.

Other Services

In additional to the Tomatis® Method listening programmes, Active Listening also offers movement programmes and tutoring programmes.

Movement programmes work on sensory integration, vestibular system, posture, motor planning, body schema, hand / eye co-ordination, the development of bi-lateral integration and ocular motor control. For greater effectiveness it will be necessary to complete specific exercises every day at home as it takes 6 weeks of repetition for new neurons to grow and automaticity to occur.

One to one tutoring is available at the Active Listening centre or online. Tutoring programmes will be discussed on an individual basis as every child will need different things and have different starting points..

About Me

Hi. I'm Jan, and I wake up every morning with one goal in mind: to help put the smile back on my clients' faces and the joy back into their lives.  As a teacher, I always questioned why some people found it so much easier to learn than others. After 30 plus years teaching and completing a Masters in Education I still had this burning question. Finding answers to that question led me to start this business. I now use customized therapies that improve the body and brain connections so that my clients can lead happier, healthier lives.
