For many of us, finding ways to express the challenges we face may prove difficult. Music by its nature is inclusive, crossing boundaries of culture, language and gender. Music therapy allows you to go at your own pace, it can provide an accompaniment to your experience (to words) and  a safe space to explore difficult feelings. 

Music made in sessions by client and therapist can allow unconscious feelings to come to the surface where they can be expressed and processed. Music therapists facilitate a shared language through sound which can enable greater self expression, help in managing difficult emotions, increased sense of connection and improved self esteem. Music therapy can support a broad range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, transitions,bereavement, trauma, burn out and stress.


You do not need to be musical to access music therapy sessions and music therapists work together verbally as well as through the music. Music therapists see music as relational, meaning that how we think about ourselves, others and the world around us can be literally and metaphorically played out in a safe and confidential space. 


Music therapists have a protected title, meaning they are state registered and their training is at masters level from accredited training courses. 

A music therapy session may explore live music making, sharing of music, explore different moods through music, therapeutic songwriting or using your voice. It is important to note that music does not have to be played in the session. It is important you feel comfortable in sessions with a therapist and after the initial conversation, if it is indicated we may suggest further sessions. Guided by client need, we may also suggest and refer to other professional services if this would further support you.
