West of England Music Therapy and Wellbeing

Using music to help people achieve their potential…

The common thread to wellbeing through music is music’s powerful capacity to make connections between people and the emotional response we have as humans to sound and music even when we are not in a good place.

As well as helping to form and sustain the musical relationship between people (client and therapist), music can in turn uplift and console and just as often share joy as well as sadness and difficulty.

The way we work means that no musical experience is necessary to access music therapy.

In sessions we may play music together using easy-to-play percussion instruments, we may speak or listen to music, often finding a simple, shared musical beat. The therapist takes the lead from you and we share a musical experience over time through music and by building trust.
