GROUP WORK

Group music therapy sessions provide the opportunity for participants to interact socially through music-based activities. Group work can happen through similar clients being a part of a small group of 3-5 members or a larger groups.

Group work can be a more cost effective way of accessing music therapy however we are particular in the members we group together to ensure that the clients get the best out of the sessions.
