Children and Young People

Children with additional needs

Our therapists work with children and young people with a wide range of needs including Autistic Spectrum Conditions, Learning Disabilities, Developmental / Neurological Conditions, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, Mental Health Problems, Attachment issues, Sensory Issues, ADHD and Dyspraxia.

Music therapy can help children by providing a safe, supportive, playful and creative space, where children can express themselves freely, helping to build their confidence and self-esteem.

Children with Autistic Spectrum Condition

Music therapy is widely recognised as an effective form of therapy for children with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC), where communicating, playing and relating to others may be a challenge.

We regularly get feedback from parents about the significant benefits music therapy has brought to their child.

Children with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH)

RMT provides therapeutic support to children attending mainstream schools with SEMH needs. Through Music Therapy we offer children the opportunity to engage in a therapeutic relationship, enabling them to develop new and positive ways of being with and relating to others. This may also help children develop greater awareness and insight into their own emotions and behaviour. Music Therapy provides a stepping stone to re-engaging with classroom learning and encourages constructive engagement in education and society.

We also work with young people in need of support for their mental health needs.

Referrals can be made by parents, carers or any professional working with the child or young person in an educational, health or social care setting.  Once we receive your completed form we will contact you to arrange an initial Music Therapy Assessment.
