The Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit & Trust Fund is our Featured Cause for July. They will benefit from any additional donations generated by anonymous shoppers for the duration of the month.
Music therapy is the clinical use of music to make direct contact with the emotions of children and adults.
The unit caters for children and adults from Shropshire and Border Counties. The Head of the Unit is a professional Music Therapist registered with the Health Care Professions Council, who undertook Post-graduate training at Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre in London, and subsequently worked for Greenwich Health Authority.
It is first and foremost therapy, the music therapist has been highly trained to use the language of music to communicate with clients, enabling them towards resolving inner tensions and developing their potential.
As well as addressing emotional needs and patterns of behaviour, the therapist aims to develop communication skills and stimulate the creative part of the brain which research shows is least likely to be impaired.
As a Registered Charity with us here at TheGivingMachine, you can support The Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit and Trust Fund in generating free donations for their excellent work with children and adults with learning and physical disabilities.
