Childhood can be a challenging time. Every day there are new experiences that can trigger anxious feelings; adjusting to new people or environments, building relationships, or maybe there are changing circumstances or transitions that are hard.
For children who have additional needs – physical disabilities or learning difficulties – then dealing with emotions and navigating feelings of anxiety or stress can be more challenging.
Music therapy can provide a safe place to explore feelings and help children manage their anxiety. It can give children a way to communicate their feelings without the need to use words.
Our trained music therapists will work with children on a one to one basis and through their relationship can help children develop relaxation techniques that work for them. They can also provide a safe space in which a child can identify their emotions and start to develop coping skills to manage their anxiety or other stressful emotions.
