In 2007 Family Focus was born. This is the Original Gold standard of the Sound Therapy that Prof. Tomatis devised so many years ago. Here in the heart of Auckland you can attend the original assessment and programmes that have helped many people overcome issues with Listening, Learning and Language acquisition. The programmes have helped people from every age category. From the unborn child, to our more mature seniors.
For over 28 years now, I have been working with Sound therapy based on the work of Tomatis. He was one of the first in the medical profession to understand the neuro-plasticity of the brain. He also understood that the 'ear is the battery for the brain' without it working well, the brain loses it's charge.
Thanks to Dr.Norman Doidge and his book 'The Brain's way of Healing' Tomatis Sound Therapy is gaining awareness. He explains the Tomatis method so very well and expertly. I am so grateful to him for this.
I recommend buying his book
On a more Personal Note
I am Noeline Levinson, I Matriculated in 1983 and went to study to be a dance teacher. I completed a course called ETA (Exercise teachers association) and at the same time took English and Psychology through UNISA.
In 1985 I went to Paris to complete a course of Sound therapy with Prof. A. Tomatis. I was lucky enough to work with Prof. Tomatis while he was still alive. When returning to South Africa I assisted my mother Beulah Levinson in running her established sound therapy centre.
In 1987, I left South Africa to study the Alexander Technique in Israel. I qualified in June 1990. I then returned to South Africa to teach in private practice. I taught at the Cape Town school of music to the Opera students as well as private students. In 1992 I moved back up to Johannesburg and opened a private practice and also taught for a number of years at the Market Theatre Lab. (Acting school).
In 1995, I opened a Sound therapy centre in Johannesburg.
Since then I have specialised in treating children with learning difficulties.
In 2004 I studied Genetic Brain Dominance Profiling and have been using that in my assessments every since then. I have also worked in the corporate environment, profiling upper and middle management, with a view to improving communication and helping staff to fulfil their potential.
Over the years I have spoken at many venues including schools, and worked with many hundred of children. I have seen this method of Sound therapy create the kind of change that few other methods are able to achieve. However, I do believe that today there are many aspects that have to be addressed when looking at learning challenges. We are living on a very polluted planet, many people still eat very processed foods, there are so many stresses on children's systems today that I feel it is imperative to look at the whole picture.
On a more personal note In 2005 I attended lectures given by Dr Albert.Ford. These lectures were about the medicines Dr. Ford imports from all over the world. As Dr.Ford became more passionate about Heavy metal toxicity, his lectures covered more about this subject. This sparked a huge interest for me personally and was relevant for the children I was working with. I tried the Chelation treatment myself first and saw such a marked difference and improvement in my overall health and memory, that I recommended it to the parents I saw.
I also recommended the treatment to my family and friends and saw incredible results.
l am happily married and have two children, who have taught me so very much along the way.

She has done couples therapy, marriage counselling and worked with families in distress for many years. She went to Paris in 1985 to study with Therese Berterat and found the work of Prof. A.
