A Day in the Life of a Music Therapist

November 15th is #EUMusicTherapyDay to mark this our music therapist and founder Amelia Clapham shares what a day in the life of a music therapist at Ace Music Therapy is like. Amelia describes a Tuesday working in the community with children who have life limiting illnesses.

- R, child. R spelt out this review using his eyes to point to letters.

"Our son had the absolute privilege of having Amelia as his Musical Therapy Teacher. He made so much progress with her and really enjoyed their time together each week. I would highly recommend Amelia & her service to anyone interested in Music therapy for their child. She is so patient, warming & Kind. Thank You Amelia & hopefully will see you very soon. xx😊"

- Parent

"We have known Amelia for one and a half year now. She has done a brilliant work for my son (Abel) who is suffering from brain injury. During the music therapy she is working hard to find any communication or connection to him. Whilst playing on instruments she carefully watches how Abel reacts. I'm sure my son enjoys the music and this sensation helps him recovering. We are happy with Amelia and her work."

- Andrea, parent

"Amelia has worked at Sunflowers Care for over two years, visiting us weekly. Sunflowers care for children and young people with a wide range of complex health needs and Amelia is adaptable to all these needs. She tailors her music therapy sessions accordingly. The music therapy she delivers is always individualised to each child, taking into account their abilities and disabilities. Amelia is flexible in her delivery of her sessions. She will often take the lead from the child and work together with them, holding therapy outside if the weather is nice and allowing the child to make choices about how their sessions develop. Our children that see Amelia regularly have built up trusting and lovely relationships with her and look forward to her visits. We enjoy having Amelia as part of our team, she has excellent communication skills and is open to new ideas and feedback."
