Harp testimonials

Harp therapy

“The clients liked to have a go with the musical instruments and the session made them really relaxed and chilled.  It was entertaining and the engagement with the clients was lovely to see.”

Tanya – activity Co-ordinator

“Yesterday Alice came to do a harp and musical instrument session with our residents and it was amazing to see. Residents that are usually very agitated and won’t sit still for more than a few minutes sat and watched and played with the harps for an hour and a half and looked so chilled. Residents that never come off their unit came and joined in and were laughing and interacting and playing the harps. A resident that does not like to socialise at all came and was smiling and playing the harp and stayed in the group the whole session. I can’t recommend this therapy enough! Thank you so much Alice it made my day.”

Lynne – nurse
