Music Therapy

The healing power of music

Music therapy is the well-established, evidence based clinical use of musical interventions to improve well-being and quality of life. Music Therapy sessions focus on communication using sound – with instruments and the voice.

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. 

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

Our therapists work with young people experiencing a range of difficulties, which might include:

  • Learning difficulties;
  • Communication difficulties;
  • Emotional difficulties;
  • Behavioural difficulties;
  • Loss;
  • Distressing, traumatic experiences;
  • Physical or co-ordination problems;
