Nordoff Robbins music therapist and beneficiary with guitar and piano

Learn how music therapy could enrich your life

Our mission is to provide music therapy to anyone whose quality of life could be improved by it.

Thank you for your interest in Nordoff Robbins music therapy

Every music therapy session at Nordoff Robbins is unique because every person is unique. Our music therapists understand that music evokes different reactions and responses in people. We work with what a person can do, rather than focus on what they can’t. We tailor our sessions to help individuals reach their potential through music in the context of their lives. We can work with anyone regardless of age or condition.


Our public referrals are temporarily on pause

We wish we were able to meet every request for music therapy. However, due to very high demand for our services, we have taken the decision to pause all public referrals until December 2022. This will enable us to support people who have been on our waiting list for a while.

Please note that this temporary pause on taking new referrals is excluding our North East services. Our North East patch includes County Durham, Northumberland, Teeside (Redcar and Cleveland, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees), Tyne & Wear (Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland). For individuals wishing to refer a child under the age of 18 for music therapy in the North East, please click the button below to make your referral.

Music therapy with other providers

In the meantime, you may wish to explore options for music therapy with other providers.  If so, you may find useful the ‘Find a therapist’ directory compiled by the British Association for Music Therapy (BAMT) which lists professional members of BAMT who have chosen to make their contact details public. It is NOT a complete listing of all music therapists in the UK, so you may also find it useful to search the internet for music therapists in your area.
