  • Mission statement

    To develop our Music Therapy service to meet the ever present needs in the Borough of Ealing at Special Needs schools and in the community.
    Music is used as a means of communication that does not need words. It transcends culture and people of every background and ability can respond to the rhythms.
    The music is used therapeutically to help each child develop and reach their full potential which helps them.
    •The music therapists work with children individually or in a small group
    •The music is improvised such that the therapist can change and adapt their response to meet the needs of the child or reacting to any behavioural change
    •They support the child wherever they are - be it in anxiety, rage, frustration, isolation, sadness or joy
    •The aims of the sessions are to work on communication, personal skills and the exploration of complex and challenging behaviour
    •Each child is an individual and progress is assessed by the changes seen since the child started therapy

  • Aims

    Ealing Music Therapy Project aims to:

    • Make Music Therapy available in Ealing to every child that could benefit
