We don’t just do music therapy. We also provide bespoke training to local authorities and also get involved with events that promote music therapy and where it can support individuals, healthcare settings and the wider community in general.
Vibe Music Therapists
Experienced Healthcare Professionals
Music Therapy is practiced at a variety of settings. At Vibe we go to settings to work with our clients as opposed to asking people living with disabilities to come to us. We work at a number of settings all over the North West of England. A standard day as a music therapist comprises of engaging with a number of clients in both individual and group music therapy sessions. Groups tend to be of around 3-5 individuals, and sessions tend to last between 30 minutes to an hour, although this depends on the people we are working with. In addition, music therapists engage with staff at the settings we work. This is important because being a great music therapist means working in a multidisciplinary way to understand the people we work with to best support the aims and outcome measures that are tailored for each client.
Here at Vibe we get involved with short term, (3-6 months) and long term (12 months +) projects. It is important to note that we do not offer ‘one-off’ sessions and the minimum course of music therapy is 10 weeks with sessions being conducted on a weekly basis.
Music Based Activities Training/CPD/Workshops
Music Therapists rely heavily on the staff who work with our service users. The wealth of knowledge in how each service user is on a day-to-day basis is critical in building a picture of the people we work with. Staff are necessary to help facilitate music therapy sessions especially where groups are concerned. To aid understanding in how best to support music therapy sessions we get involved in staff workshops as part of CPD and the practical side of delivering sessions that are more successful. Workshops involve a day of understanding the background of music therapy, some of the techniques used in the process and simulated activities that reveal how the process works.
Due to the flexible nature of music therapy, corporate team building is also an area of interest to us. Group music therapy sessions allow communication, expression and engagement on many levels and this can facilitate bringing a group of employees closer together to drive efficiency in how people in organisations work together. If this is an area of interest get in touch and let us know how you would like us to support your objectives.
We have recently developed a bespoke training program called “Music Based Activities Training”. This training program is designed for support workers, carers and other healthcare professionals that are engaging with service users on a daily basis. No musical experience is required and we have created a page that explains in more detail here.
Community and Charitable Projects
Vibe Music Therapy is always looking at ways to support the local community. In this case we aim to support areas in and around the Merseyside, Liverpool and Cheshire area that would benefit from short term projects that support people in a variety of ways. Here are some areas we are currently looking at:
- Homeless Shelters and short term respite
- Addiction & Rehabiliation support
- Domestic Violence/abuse
- Asylum Seekers and Refugee support
If you are part of a local council or an individual/organisation that already does great work with disadvantaged people in and around Liverpool then contact us and let us know what you are looking to do. If we can help we will.
We service clients across the North West of England and have bases in the City of Liverpool and the Wirral. If you have an enquiry, please feel free to contact us from the details below.
