Chroma to provide therapy to STEPS Rehabilitation

Chroma becomes arts therapy provider to innovative STEPS Rehabilitation facility in Sheffield

Chroma has become the official provider of neurologic arts therapy services to an innovative Yorkshire rehabilitation centre for people recovering from neurological and multiple trauma injuries.


Sheffield-based STEPS Rehabilitation is a 23 bedroom, state of the art, short-term (up to 12-18 months) residential and day facility that uses as wide a range of therapies to maximise rehabilitation for clients.

The UK’s only national arts therapy provider, Chroma, will deliver a range of art, neurologic music and drama therapies for STEPS clients in line with their individual needs, drawing up plans based on their known interests, particular issues and potential results.

The centre is family-owned and clinical director Toria Chan said that STEPS had talked to a number of arts therapy providers before finding one that shared their values.

She explained: “It had always been our intention to provide arts therapy packages as part of our rehabilitation strategies but it was also very important to us that we partnered with someone who shared our general approach and ethos.

“We want to provide an environment where people who have suffered from neurological and multiple trauma injuries have the very best chance of reaching their maximum potential and our entire organisation and our centre is based on this approach.

“In Chroma, we believe that we have found that partner. They clearly show a great deal of care and expertise in their approach to each individual client and have a superb team of professionals able to meet a wide range of arts therapy requirements.”

Daniel Thomas, managing director at Chroma, said: “STEPS is already winning a well-deserved national reputation for its approach and we are very pleased to be working so closely with Toria and the rest of the team.”
