Making a referral

You are here

Music has the power to affect us in different ways. It can be stimulating or soothing; stir our emotions and memories, comfort and inspire. We use music therapy to help people with a range of conditions including learning disabilities, neurological disorders, life-limiting illness, brain injury, cerebral palsy, mental health issues, trauma, stroke and dementia. Music therapy uses music to break down barriers caused by illness or disability. 

You can make a referral for someone you know or for yourself by completing a referral form. When suitable time becomes available, a music therapy assessment will be offered which may comprise up to four sessions  Following this, we will discuss together how best music therapy might be of help.


Anyone can make a referral for themselves, or a family member or carer Health care professionals, therapists, teaching staff, support workers can all make referrals.


Please email us at to request a form and return it to the centre.  We will then contact you to let you know that we have received your referral and then be in touch as soon as a place is available.
