Carrickfergus Women's Forum

For well over a year now a group of 10-12 women from our organisation have been involved in music therapy, in the form of a choir, with Emma Donnelly. The women who use our services have all experienced mental health struggles and take part in our programme as part of their recovery to wellness.

The choir on a Thursday evening has become a very important part of that process for all of them. Through the music and singing they have found themselves engrossed in the present moment, focusing only on the task in hand- a very joyful one at that! Very often people will arrive with heavy hearts and leave on a much higher note. The choir is one of our best attended activities, even through the cold, wet winter we had full numbers!”

Thanks Emma.
