Music Therapy

What is it?

Music therapy uses the influence of music to affect the way you feel.  Music can resonate powerfully with our feelings, helping us to express them and to communicate them to others.  It is a clinical and evidence-based process with proven success and it is interesting, fun and social for all.  We offer a course of six one-hour sessions.

Who can come?

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another life-limiting illness, music therapy could be helpful to you. 

How do I get referred?

Any Health Care Professional involved in your care, including your GP, can refer you to music therapy. However if you are already known to Rennie Grove, you can be referred by a member of staff. Alternatively you can refer yourself by either phoning 01727 731013 or by calling into our Drop-in Session on a Tuesday morning between 9am and 1pm when our nurses will be able to advise and assess you.

What will happen when I get there?

The courses are run in a group setting in collaboration with Chiltern Music Therapy.  A trained practitioner will bring an array of musical instruments and encourage attendees to play them.  No two sessions are the same, but the therapist will tailor the session to each attendee’s needs and goals.     

When and where are the Music Therapy sessions held?

The music therapy sessions will take place at Grove House on dates to be confirmed. 

What does it cost?
