"Stay and Play"? Music Therapy Group
You are welcome to attend our music therapy group. Parents usually come for an hour, once a week for a term. We use percussion instruments, drums, ribbons, balls and parachutes, along with singing known and new songs. The aim is to increase positive interactions between parents and their children, enhance child development, build social support networks and increase parents’ confidence to use music as play at home. Children love it!
What to Expect
When we allocate your referral, we’ll give you a call, talk about how you are and arrange a time for you to come and see us.
When you come in, first we’ll make you feel at home and introduce you to the facilities. Then one of our team will meet with you to understand your needs and work out which services are most appropriate.
From this point on you’ll be invited to come regularly, usually once a week. When you visit will depend on the services you wish to access. Over the next few weeks or months, however long it takes, the team will support you until you feel ready to move on from our care. Our staff include Registered Nurses, Clinical Psychologists, Social Workers and Psychiatrists with specialist qualifications in perinatal and infant mental health.
