Music therapy, whether as a group or an individual, has social benefits for individuals with a wide range of differing needs. Group music therapy is very useful for individuals who have difficulty in communication. For some individuals, this could be the result of a physical impediment, a neurological condition or a mental health problem. It could be the result of an individual being on the autistic spectrum. Additionally, group music therapy has benefits when used for individuals who struggle with communication for social reasons. For example, they may have a limited vocabulary, or they may lack the self-esteem or self-confidence to express themselves openly. If someone you support would benefit from our group music therapy in the Banchory area, please contact us to make a booking. Our services are available in Banchory and throughout Aberdeenshire.
Group music therapy is used to help individuals who struggle with communication to express themselves. During the session, the group and the music therapist communicate by using musical sound, instead of verbally with words. The instruments become a means by which participants can learn to express themselves with increased confidence and freedom. The sound created becomes an improvised language.
There are many benefits which come from group music therapy. Banchory participants will find that they gain in self-confidence and self-esteem as they express themselves more openly and freely. For individuals with limitations in their ability to communicate verbally, it can be freeing to find a new way of expressing themselves to others. Additionally, valuable social skills can be developed in the setting of group music therapy. Participants can find that they are better able to take turns and interact socially within a group, both with other participants as well as with the therapist or any support worker that may be present. Additionally, it can help with developing listening skills as well as audio and visual awareness. Attention spans can increase, as can personal creativity. There are many benefits to be gained from this highly specialised and effective communication method.
All our therapists are highly trained and experienced. As a team, we have more than 20 years of experience. Additionally, all our therapists are qualified, registered with HPC and members of BAPMT. This gives our clients the peace of mind that comes from working with experienced, competent professionals.
