Music can be a very powerful way to help both children and adults with a whole range of needs, and to improve mental health, development and social skills. Berkshire Music Trust offers music therapy across the spectrum with our partner, Whole Step CIC.

  • Music Therapy Service for Children and Young People

    Whole Step CIC‘s Music Therapy service for children with additional needs uses instrumental play, singing, and musical games to promote communication, social interaction, focus, playfulness, and wellbeing. They accept private referrals for individual and parent-child sessions and also run small community groups. The sessions are available in-person and online.

    Mindful Music is a short-term, online therapy to help adults change the way they react to anxiety, depression, stress and conflict. It uses music-listening and creating images as tools to build inner strength and mental wellbeing.

  • Community Music

    Our community music groups bring people together, using music to teach, share, and enrich lives. These groups could be for adults, children, or families in a variety of community settings and may include singing familiar favourites or using drumming and percussion to promote social cohesion.

Music Therapy Feedback

"My son asks for music time nearly every day after school. He’s using the Hello and Goodbye songs to say goodbye and greet people. Music is great for calming him and he smiles throughout the group."

"I’ve had a much better week than normal, I feel because of the session. I woke up…with a smile on my face. I usually have low level panic all of the time, and I’ve not had that this week."
