We are very grateful to The Amy Winehouse Foundation for their generosity in supporting our Music Therapy service.
Rhythm and music are tools for motivation, concentration and learning, and the skills that develop in music therapy often transfer to other areas of the child’s life. In music therapy children often develop their social communication skills, their physical skills, their cognition and understanding of the world. It is also a psychological therapy in which behavioural and emotional difficulties can be explored and worked with.
Music therapy can have a positive impact on children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development and give children new opportunities to express themselves, which leads to increased confidence and self-esteem.
“We are extremely grateful to have been awarded funded music therapy sessions through the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Our son absolutely adores his therapist and we have watched him grow in confidence with his speech and singing. Watching him so happy and free to express himself through music therapy is an absolute joy.” Ruiri’s mum
Who is Music Therapy suitable for?
Babies and children aged from 0 to 18 years old with a primary movement disorder, due to conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, global development delay or other neurological disorders. At CPotential we also offer music therapy for children whose behaviour, confidence and wellbeing are being impacted by emotional difficulties.
If you are uncertain if we can help you or your child, please do still get in touch. Sessions can be offered both face-to-face and online.
How can Music Therapy help my child?
Led by our qualified Music Therapist, we invite the children to engage in shared musical play, using a combination of musical improvisation and structured songs. Wherever possible, children are encouraged to access and explore the instruments themselves.
The sessions are based on the individual responses, strengths and needs of each child. Over time we develop specific aims for each child and encourage them to reach their full potential and support them in overcoming difficulties. Music therapy also places great value in the importance of developing a therapeutic relationship in which children can develop trust and a sense of being valued and accepted.
Music therapy can be beneficial to children with a wide range of needs, conditions and difficulties. It can:
- have a positive impact on children’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development
- give children new opportunities to express themselves, which leads to increased confidence and self-esteem.
How much is Music Therapy?
We believe that no child or young person should go without treatment due to financial circumstances.
As a not-for-profit organisation, CPotential is committed to fundraising for bursary support so we can provide the very best tailored integrated rehabilitation programmes for children and young people with movement disorders, at a vastly reduced rate.
Our prices vary per session across our core suite of services, depending on personal circumstances, bursary availability, and eligibility criteria. To help us gauge eligibility for a Therapy Plan Bursary, we do require a household income range that best represents your current financial status. E.g. £0 to £25,000, £26,000 to £50,000, £51,000 to £75,000 or £76,000 to £100,000+. See baseline fees here.
There is a one-off fee of £20 for an initial assessment to access all CPotential services.
