We try our best to reach out to as many as we can and promote the healing and therapeutic power of music.

The trust offers therapy to a variety of clientele including paediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric clients. Services are available to clients with special needs and also to clients who want to live a positive and healthy life. All music therapy services are provided by qualified graduate and certified therapists who receive regular supervision for their cases. Music being a client-led therapy, all sessions are specifically designed to meet each client's individual needs. These include:
- Individualized Treatment Plan
- Individual or Group Music Therapy
- Collaboration with schools, agencies, and other health professionals
- Music Therapy for corporates, communities and organisations
Clinical music therapy is an active method in which clients are lead into a process of clinical improvisation method. Musical relationship, interaction and engagement with the client are the key therapeutic goals which we work with. Music therapy is unique of other therapies because it is a non-forced approach of work which is completely client-led. It is non-verbal and non-threatening. In fact, music is so appealing and organic, that it does not require much effort from the client to get engaged in the sessions.
Music therapy is currently provided by our qualified music therapists holding a Master of Music Therapy degree from the UK. They have studied various aspects of psychology, psychotherapy and counselling skills as part of their training. In addition to this, they have also been exposed to months of practical work with the clients as part of their therapeutic skills development and work experience. Our therapists are skilled, efficient, and conduct informed clinical music therapy. Therapists are regularly guided and supervised by their senior music therapists based in the UK.
