Music therapy is a psychological therapy delivered by highly trained allied health professionals who are registered with the Health Care Professions Council. We use music as a tool to engage clients and work towards therapeutic aims such as developing communication skills, providing an outlet for self-confidence and developing self-confidence to name a few. 

We work with client’s natural musicality and work in a client-led way. Music is a universal language irrespective of disability, race, language and cultural background. It is particularly beneficial for those who cannot speak as it not only gives them an opportunity to be in control but also allows them to express themselves in a non-verbal manner.

Music therapists work with people of all ages and abilities, here are just a few of the client groups we work with:

Autistic Spectrum Disorder

Learning Disability

Attachment Disorders

Selective Mutism

Emotional and Behavioural difficulties

Neurological disabilities such as brain injury, stroke, parkinsons etc.

Visual Impairments

Hearing Impairments

People with communication difficulties

Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Mental Health Issues including Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder etc.

Palliative Care and Bereavement

Music is such a powerful tool, it has the power to unlock memories and remind us of special times, places and events in our lives. It can instantly change our mood and let’s face it, everyone is musical – from the moment we first hear our mother’s heartbeat in the womb to the moment we die, we all have our own tempo (speed) we walk at, pitch we talk at, and we can all be seen tapping our feet to a beat at some point. This is why we use music in our work as music therapists.
