How can Music Therapy help?
Music Therapy has a unique innate quality that identifies the social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects of humankind. We use rhythmic intervention to calm the nervous system and access inner parts of the brain and nervous system to reduce anxiety. We can explore melodic spaces to echo emotions as well as human experiences, stories, unconscious communications, self- expression and creativity. We work in a respectful, honest and open environment that allows plenty of space for musical wonderment, choice and exploration.
For many children with SM, Music Therapy offers a place to create sound, communicate emotions, and explore imagination free of judgement and fear. As therapists, we offer children a beautiful space in which to have conversations without spoken words. Instead, our instruments and sounds help the children to speak all the words they need to say whilst we listen and respond to the world they allow us to join.
