Alpha Woodward is an accredited music therapist with the Canadian Music Therapy Association (MTA). She completed her BMT at Capilano College (CAP) in 1994, and her MMT (Open University) in 1998 in Vancouver, British Columbia. In January 2015 she completed her doctoral studies in Leadership and Change through Antioch University and under the mentorship of Dr. Carolyn Kenny. Her initial interest in the Bonny Method of Music and Imagery was inspired by Capilano College instructors, Liz Moffitt and Nancy McMaster who were completing their Level III training in the early 1990s. However, after beginning Level I with Rosemary Lindquist and Kirsty Lewis in 1991, and Level II with Linda Kaiser in 1992, the GIM journey training wasunexpectedly interrupted by many life changes and physical moves. From Vancouver to Bosnia and Herzegovina (4 years) back to the Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast, Montreal, Vancouver Island, Montreal again, Ireland - and finally Pennsylvania, the BMGIM training was completed with Liz Moffitt in 2017. So BMGIM became a consistent metaphoric companion along a very long and complex life journey.
