Music therapists help people to express themselves through music. Music therapy particularly helps people who find talking difficult.
We provide specialist assessment and treatment for people who have specific expressive and emotional needs.
Through music, the therapist and service user work together so that the service user can experience new ways of relating. This leads to development, change and recovery.
We also provide services for other healthcare professionals, including teaching, clinical supervision, student placements and consultation.
We accept referrals for young people who are inpatients at Hopewood, who experience complex psychological problems and who would benefit from a mainly non-verbal therapy.
