Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit and Trust Fund

Description:

Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit and Trust Fund (Registered Charity 702974), established 1988, provides music therapy mainly for children and adults with learning and physical disabilities following a professional referral. The unit caters for children and adults from Shropshire and Border Counties. The Head of the Unit is a professional Music Therapist registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (hcpc), who undertook Post-graduate training at Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre in London, and subsequently worked for Greenwich Health Authority.

Music therapy is the clinical use of music to make direct contact with the emotions of children and adults.

It is first and foremost therapy, the music therapist has been highly trained to use the language of music to communicate with clients, enabling them towards resolving inner tensions and developing their potential.

As well as addressing emotional needs and patterns of behaviour, the therapist aims to develop communication skills and stimulate specific areas of the brain to either support, or help take over, the roles of impaired areas and thus aid cognitive development and sensory integration.

For career information, please contact The British Association of Music Therapy.
