Music Therapy

TEXT to be edited down.

All human beings respond to music and are inherently musical. This basic response to music is present from birth and remains throughout life, often unimpaired by disability or illness. It is this powerful and innate response to music through which music therapists develop therapeutic relationships with their clients (adults, young people and children). Musical communication and self-expression is common to all of us and is the powerful medium via which positive change and development can occur in music therapy sessions.

Engagement in music therapy sessions supports the development of physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing. Clients are also supported to reach their full potential through regular active participation in a creative therapeutic safe space. Music therapists use music and sounds within sessions to communicate and interact with their clients. Music therapy is one of the creative arts psychotherapies and the nature of sessions is therefore confidential.

The music therapy team is made up of highly trained and skilled clinical practitioners who support their clients to engage in shared music making through improvisation, tailored to the unique responses of each individual. We are all state registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
