Video: Music Therapy Magic with Simplyhealth

Jane Shufflebotham

We hope that you enjoy our short film which highlights the importance of music therapy at The Children’s Trust.
The music therapy session shown in the film was held to celebrate European Music Therapy Day with our corporate supporter Simplyhealth. Simplyhealth have now supported us for three years and this year they helped to fund the music therapy service, including two powerfully therapeutic instruments: the handpan drum (featured in the film) and the sounding bowl. Staff from the company were invited to experience the session to see first-hand the impact music has on each individual child. Each year we have to raise over £93,000 to fund music therapy at The Children’s Trust. We cannot thank Simplyhealth and our generous supporters enough for enabling us to fund a therapy that is a powerful way of providing emotional support, exploring and developing communication skills, and ensuring the children have fun!
