Trainings and workshops
Assessment, treatment and training – Would you like an interactive music therapy workshop for your staff? We offer training days in music therapy which aim to share new ways of thinking that delegates can implement in to their own daily working lives. The interactive workshops include experiential music making, exploration of clinical work and theory and role play.
Certificates of completion of training are given and we hope that staff take away new skills and new ways of thinking about how they can engage with their students/ service users.
Please contact us for training rates.
We can offer music therapy assessment sessions in order to support an application for funding for music therapy, or in order to make recommendations for future interventions. An assessment involves a first meeting where we review the referral form and talk about hopes for music therapy. We would then see the child/ client for 3 consecutive weekly sessions, first for observations and the following two weeks for assessment music therapy sessions. We then submit a short report and make our recommendations.
We are able to advise about music therapy services and whether music therapy as an individual or group intervention would be most appropriate.
An assessment and the first 3 sessions are £175.
We can also offer consultation about Music Therapy for your service. We cover everything from what music therapy is, to how to employ and keep a music therapist, how they will fit in to and contribute to your team, what to expect from working with the therapist, what they offer to the client and to the team and we can help with suggestions of funding.
Consultations are £50.
The Waves Office is open on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9-3pm.
We will endeavour to answer all enquiries as they arrive, but please note that we are only in the office two days per week.
