Our mission statement;

“To enhance the mental health of people experiencing emotional and mental distress by promoting and providing an inclusive, community-based service of music therapy which includes outreach, short and long term groups and individual work.”
Music therapy is the use of musical instruments and the sounds they make to promote change and recovery.
All sessions are participatory and user friendly - people have a wide selection of accessible, multicultural instruments to use. People do not need to have had any previous musical experience to participate in sessions.
Our aim is for people to experience an improved quality of life and get their confidence back - music therapy can be especially helpful if you’re experiencing difficulties in relating to others.
Around 200 people with high mental health support needs benefit each year from our service, as well as carers and adults with dementia.
Soundwell has a highly dedicated, experienced team of music therapists.
All our therapists are;
- state registered with the Health and Care Professions Council,
- experienced in the field of mental ill health,
- DBS checked and
- members of the The British Association for Music Therapy.
As an organisation we aim to be as representative as possible of our beneficiary groups and actively encourage service user feedback and involvement.
Soundwell is registered with the Charity Commission, registered charity number: 1093992
