Music Therapy

Music plays an important role in our everyday lives. It can be exciting or calming, joyful or poignant, can stir memories and powerfully resonate with our feelings, helping us to express them and to communicate with others.

Music Therapy uses the different elements of music, such as components of rhythm, melody and tonality, to provide a means of relating within a therapeutic relationship. A wide range of accessible instruments are used within sessions, and clients are encouraged to explore these and the use of their voice to create a musical language which reflects their emotional and physical condition. This enables connection to the inner self and to those around them.

Music Therapists support each client with a bespoke combination of improvised or pre-composed instrumental music and voice, either sung or spoken. Individual and group sessions are provided in many settings throughout the UK, and the therapist’s approach is informed by different theoretical frameworks, depending on their training and the health needs which are to be met.
