Sian West

One piece of music has been the soundtrack to Sian's life. Expressing herself through her violin, she was somehow never quite able to unpick the strands in the fuque - the self-harm, the drinking, the depression, the panic, the anxiety. After many years, an assault at work signals the start of a series of bitter losses and the beginnings of a therapeutic pathway that is orchestrated for her, not by her. Suddenly, a flashback to childhood trauma opens up memories and she picks up her violin once more, still searching for a recognised diagnosis and a clear therapeutic pathway.
