Thame Music Therapy

Thame Music Therapy is a community-focused therapy practice aiming to enhance the existing network of inclusive support for children, young people and adults in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. 

Music therapy is a creativeengaging and flexible form of therapy. Through a combination of talking and accessible music-making (improvisation, song writing, musical games) to form a positive working rapport, music therapy aims to support mental health, well-being and personal development. 

The benefits of music therapy can include:

– enhanced communication and self-expression

– emotional containment and reduced anxiety

– developed awareness of self and others

– improved listening skills and capacity to share

– increased focus and concentration span

– more flexible and creative play

Thame Music Therapy is run by Hugh Anderson, an HCPC-certified music therapist with 15 years experience within mainstream, SEN and SEMH education settings. Hugh is also Head of Therapies for the organisation Resources for Autism. He has worked with a wide range of autistic individuals and people living with ADHD.
