What We Do
Family Support Services
Music Therapy

Music Therapy is available to:

• Assess, plan and provide music therapy sessions to families supported by Demelza.

• Work with children/young people individually, in small groups or together with their parents, depending on need or referral

• Promote understanding of the role that music therapy at Demelza has, including participating in training and dissemination about the work. Staff who attend the Jessie's Fund music making course will be invited to participate in the music specialist programme, run by the music therapist at Demelza Kent.

• Provide longer term music therapy sessions to meet assessed needs of the child/family. This may include individual work, family work and groups which can be delivered in the hospice or community, including the family home and school.

• Maintain effective communication and liaison between Demelza and other relevant professionals.

• Offer a flexible approach and undertake other duties consistent with the musical life of the hospice (such as arranging music at funerals & also at concerts).

• All Music Therapists must be Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registestered.

Where Music Therapy is not accessible or not deemed appropriate, other forms of therapy will be considered and where possible secured to meet the assessed needs (see Counselling).

Demelza Hospice Care for Children is an organizational member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to the Ethical Framework for all counseling skills based activities. All work undertaken is located with relevant clinical and organizational policy frameworks to ensure safeguarding.

  Jessie’s Fund is a UK charity helping children with additional and complex needs through the use of music.
