Our Creative Therapies

Coram meets children from complex and traumatic backgrounds every day.

Some children may have witnessed violence; some are victims of neglect; and some have physical or psychological conditions that could see them socially isolated.They are often very young, and unable to understand or explain their feelings.

How Coram helps 

We offer our ground-breaking Creative Therapies service at our Coram Community Campus in London, in schools and in the community, using music and art to stimulate self-expression in children, young people and their parents. These therapies are based on our rich musical and artistic heritage - the composer Handel and the artist Hogarth were two of Coram's earliest supporters.

Our Achievements

An astonishing 94% of the parents reported their child's wellbeing improved after our Creative Therapies. Positive results include:

  • Increased concentration and attention skills.
  • Improved family and social relationships.
  • Enhanced communication and speech skills.
  • Increased confidence.

For many children it is the first step towards finding ways of dealing with their feelings of loss, frustration and emotional trauma so that they can start to learn to trust, love and lead happier lives.
