Book a Session

The therapist is guided by the client to create music which communicates directly with the clients' music and dynamic. In holding this musical conversation this can tell us so much about how someone relates to others around them and allows their inner selves to shine through.

 

Music therapy can address a variety of needs that could also be addressed through psychotherapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy etc.

 

The goals are determined through a careful assessment process and developed in conjunction with the client themselves, parents, carers and observations of sessions.

Who is Music Therapy for?

Music can essentially be a powerful force towards health and wellbeing for everyone.  I work with people experiencing a variety of health challenges including:

Children and adults experiencing mental health challenges & disorders

Engaging in music therapy has been reported to reduce mental health challenges such as stress, anxiety and depression in a number of ways. Through music therapy we are supported and guided in creating the music of our emotions and experiences, thus expressing and even creating order and structure around our thoughts and feelings.

Those seeking a therapeutic frame -work to explore their musicianship

For some, the experience of music lessons has held challenges or has not spoken to their specific way of connecting.  For those wishing to begin the process of communicating through their voice or instrument, I offer a supportive space where we aim to draw out your musical voice.
