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.

Music Therapy

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 and 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.

Although we wish we were able to meet every request, it is not possible due to the very high demand for our music therapy sessions and the restrictions we are keeping in place to minimise the risk of Covid infections. Currently, you can expect up to a two year wait before we may be able to offer you sessions. Please do note that if the condition of the person being referred for music therapy is related to shortened life expectancy or to recent trauma, we will see you as soon as possible. If this is the case, please do make this clear on the enquiry form.

If you would still like to join the waiting list to access our services, please complete the enquiry form below.  When we can offer you music therapy sessions, a member of our team will be in touch to discuss further.

Refer somebody for music therapy

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.

Find a Therapist through BAMT

If you are an organisation and would like learn more about how our music therapists can help enrich the lives of the people your organisation supports – you can enquire on behalf of your organisation.
