George’s Rockstars is incredibly lucky to have an amazing music therapist on board.
Cathy Birch qualified in 2014 and trained with Nordoff Robins. She has years of experience in working with children and young people in the hospital setting and introduced music therapy to the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London.
Cathy absolutely loves her job and has incredible energy and enthusiasm. She is trained to a Masters degree level and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as a Registered Music Therapist. She is also co-chair of the Paediatric Network for the British Association of Music Therapy.
“When I am asked about my job, I often say how lucky I am and that I probably have one of the best jobs in the hospital! Spending time in hospital or living with a long term health condition can be difficult for children and families in so many ways, so it’s a real privilege to be in a role which is all about helping children and families not just to cope but to live positively in the face of these challenges.”
