Join us for a course of Mindful Music therapy to help you manage stress and anxiety.
This is a 6-week course, running from 7th January to 4th March – please note, there will not be a session on 18th February
What is Mindful Music?
Mindful Music is a short-term therapy which helps people change the way they react to stressful situations, anxiety, and conflicts. Our small group is led by Helen Wallace, a music and imagery therapist, with Thandi Hagos from ACS.
How does it work?
This process uses music-listening and creating images to help us recall positive feelings and moments in our lives. The therapist helps us to focus on these feelings and bring them into the present moment. These feelings are strengthened through creating images as we listen to music. The music is a metaphorical container which ‘holds’ us throughout this process, much as mindfulness meditation holds us within a moment of stillness and the repeated experience of this process instils these feelings within us. We can then call upon this inner strength and positivity when we need it most.
Images can take the form of shapes, blocks of colour, or pictures – no experience of drawing is necessary.
