This course provides you with professional training in music therapy, approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Essential to music therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. At Roehampton, we have chosen to base our music therapy training programme on the use of psychoanalytical ideas to inform our understanding of the therapy process and the ways the client uses the environment, the therapist and the music. The course emphasises the emotional development of the student practitioner together with clinical exploration through critical enquiry.
