Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit and Trust Funds
Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit and Trust Funds 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.
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 the creative part of the brain which research shows is least likely to be impaired.
