Coram Creative Theapies
Coram's ground breaking art and music therapy helps children from complex and traumatic backgrounds every day.

How Coram Creative Therapies help children
We offer our groundbreaking art and music therapy at our new adoption support centre, The Pears Pavilion, at 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.
Helping children deal with loss and trauma
More than 90% of parents reported their child's behavioural issues improved after attending creative therapy. 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.
