Music Therapy

As music therapists we are specialists who use music to facilitate self-expression, based on psychodynamic and person centred approaches. Music Therapy is particularly useful for people who may find verbal communication difficult.

Specialist assessment, formulation and treatment is provided for people who have specific expressive and emotional needs.

Through music, a therapeutic relationship can be formed in which the service user can experience new ways of relating, leading to development, change and recovery.

Other services provided include teaching, clinical supervision, student placements and consultation.

Referrals are accepted for adults over 18 with intellectual disabilities who experience complex psychological problems and who would benefit from a primarily non-verbal intervention.

The two teams are based at Highbury Hospital and Lindsay Close in Mansfield. Both venues offer disabled access.
