Music Therapy & Mental Health

Music therapy is recognised as an effective psychological intervention in the care of children and adults with mental illness. It can play a valuable role in helping minimise the trauma and disruption often associatedwith hospitalisation, and can have a positive impact on negative symptoms experienced with a mental health illness, such as motivation, social withdrawal and diminished affective experience and responsiveness.

Music Therapy & Adolesence

Adolescence can be a difficult time involving the establishment of identity, morality and beliefs, development of sexuality and integration into society. Music therapy offers a safe, non- threatening space for adolescents to address personal and wider societal issues through a musical and verbal dialogue and to use their relationship with the music and with the therapist to help address their transition from childhood to adulthood.

Music Therapy & Autism

Many professionals refer to a triad of impairments in autism and music therapy can offer the following benefits.
Social interaction: Music therapy is based on forming a relationship between client and therapist. This can be a way to explore the idea of relationship in a very safe place.

Communication: Music provides an additional form of communication. The therapist attends closely to, and responds to, the client in a way that encourages further communication.
Imagination: The use of music encourages the clients to engage in a creative, imaginative process, with the support of the therapist. They can often move away from a ritualistic use of instruments to a more flexible, creative use. This can also lead to the development of less rigid thought and behaviour patterns.
