Music therapy

Chelsea and Westminster has one of the longest histories for the provision of paediatric music therapy in the National Health Service (NHS). Music therapists work with children who have a wide variety of communication, social, developmental and emotional needs.

Music therapy is a research active profession. It can help boost the communication skills of children with autism spectrum disorders and it is a service highly valued by parents and healthcare professionals.

What we offer:

  • music therapy treatment for babies, children and young people
  • courses of individual or group music therapy
  • parent and child music therapy sessions for the under 5s
  • consultation and training to other professionals including the voluntary sector

The objectives for the service:

  • There are many key objectives for the music service relevant to paediatric physiotherapy and these include:
  • to meet Aiming High and National Service Framework targets
  • to promote better understanding amongst parents of the importance to themselves and their children of physical activity.
  • to provide services closer to home, in schools, nurseries, children’s centres and other settings
