“I’ve always felt that music therapy can be an important part of any integrated programme of rehabilitation for a person with an acquired brain injury. It can provide unique opportunities for emotional recognition and expression, rhythmical integration in terms of movement and expression, support the development of speech and language and not the least, can be great fun and a source of joy.
In a recent case I have been working with, music therapy provided by one of the Chroma therapists has opened unique possibilities in terms of occupation and career, social communication skills and artistic expression. As a team, we had the wonderful opportunity of seeing our service user perform her own music for the first time, it was a striking and wonderful moment in her therapeutic journey.
I would absolutely recommend Chroma as a service provider of high quality and professionalism.”
