How Can Music Therapy Help?
Music therapy is a unique clinical discipline which reaches out to many of the most vulnerable people in our society. We work with a wide range of individuals with varying special needs and accordingly tailor the sessions to meet these needs. The benefits of music therapy will vary for each individual and we therefore tend to list common outcomes that will apply to the people with whom we work. For example, a programme of music therapy can help an individual:
- Increase their confidence and self-esteem
- Develop better social skills
- Develop better communication skills
- Develop skills of self-expression (verbal and non-verbal)
- Increase awareness of others (especially in group situations)
- Explore personal and psychological problems in a safe environment
- Channel difficult feelings into productive activity
- Develop a sense of general well-being
The main target is to maximise the potential of each person. We aim to achieve this through constant assessment, with realistic targets set in conjunction with the client, parent or carers, support staff, health care professionals and teaching staff as appropriate. This multi-disciplinary working ensures the needs of each person are addressed appropriately and effectively.
