North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre
Updated: Oct 8, 2021
North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre run music therapy sessions, events and workshops across North Yorkshire to promote well-being.
Sessions take place both in the community and in their Centre based in Hovingham. They also provide on-line resources for teachers, parents and carers to use. NYMTC are happy to take referrals from doctors, other health professionals, teachers and self-referrals. To make a referral for music therapy, please complete one of their online forms. Once they've received your referral form they will get in touch to discuss your needs in more detail and arrange an introductory session.
Individual sessions with a therapist are available and can help in developing and improving self-confidence. Group sessions are also provided. They help build a deep sense of community and empathetic support among the members. Music therapy groups support the creation of a group identity based on trust and respect of each individual within the group.
After a few assessment sessions, the therapist will be able to identify specific aims to address the Clients’ needs. The aims will be formalised in the Therapist’s reports. The therapist will periodically meet the family/carers or institution to share insights from the music therapy sessions. It will be possible to review the aims of the sessions according to the Client’s best interest.
