Professor Leslie Bunt, MBE, PhD, LGSM (MT), FAMI, FRSA, Director


Ian Leslie, Barbara Zanchi, Joanna Lander, Jasenka Horvat


Leslie Bunt’s AMI-endorsed GIM training continues to develop a more international perspective. Developments throughout 2022 led to the creation of a new name for this training which is now described as CHIRON GIM TRAINING with reference to Chiron, the mythical figure of the ‘wounded healer’ (a term introduced by Jung in 1951).

The team assisting Leslie are all AMI Fellows and for further information about trainings based in Croatia, Italy, Hong Kong/Taiwan and UK/Ireland please contact Leslie and the team at:

Trainings delivered in 2022 included an online Level I for music therapists from Hong Kong and Taiwan and the first Level I in Croatia. Level I online trainings were also completed in the UK and Ireland, with online and in person Level I and II seminars taking place in Italy.  

The Level I in Croatia is integrated into a university-based module on post-graduate specialist studies in creative therapies (music therapy) at Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek, Croatia. This university-based initiative is similar to a new Level I that forms part of the MA music therapy programme and a specialist Continuing Professional Development module at the Bruno Maderna Music Conservatoire in Cesena, Italy. 

Trainings in 2023 involved groups of music therapists from Croatia, Hong Kong/Taiwan, Italy and the UK/Ireland who completed their Level II trainings.

Level III trainings for these groups are beginning in 2024.

The above Levels, I, II and III currently adhere to AMI’s 'Classic' style of training. Future Level I trainings shall be adopting the 'Flexible' approach with at least 35 hours at the Introductory Level and the remaining 155 at the Advanced Level.

Chiron training programmes offer guest presentations from experienced colleagues with a range of specialist interests.
