Welcome to the Music Therapy Blog. I am so excited to start this website, and have many hopes for what it will become.
When I started researching what’s out there in the small corner of the internet that contains music therapy, I was shocked to find few other active music therapy blogs in the UK at this current time! I only found two blogs that have been updated in the past 6 months: 1) Skylark and 2) Chiltern Music Therapy (see links in the resources section). Perhaps I didn’t look hard enough. Perhaps UK music therapy blogs are hard to find?
In my bloggy search, I found several (fantastic) American blogs. This raised many questions; why aren’t British Music Therapists writing blogs? What if no one wants to read a blog about music therapy? Do I have anything to say that will be of interest? Do I have time to write a blog?
And one particular, concerning question it raised; am I jeopardising my professional boundaries and reputation if I write and publish blogs?
But I think I do have something to say, or write. I do feel that I can offer something of interest to visitors to this website. I will make time. I will explore why I am one of very few British Music Therapist to write a blog.
And we will all find out if it is ‘okay’ for a Music Therapist to be blogging…
