Music Therapy

About Music Therapy

Music therapy is the well-established, evidence based clinical use of musical interventions to improve well-being and quality of life.

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. 

The length of treatment depends on the recommendations of the therapist, following assessment and ongoing review.

Music therapy can support positive change in adults and children who experience severe physical, behavioural, social, emotional and/or communication difficulties. These difficulties may arise from, for example:

  • Depression
  • High levels of anxiety
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Bullying
  • Life shortening illness
  • Bereavement
  • Acquired Brain Injury
