MUSIC THERAPIST and COUNSELLOR
Certified NMT Neurologic Music Therapist
ABOUT MUSIC THERAPY
Music therapy, an established and allied health profession, is the clinical and evidence-based use of music with all its elements to achieve non-musical goals and to help people to improve physical and mental health or functional outcomes.
Music, as a non-verbal medium, can express feelings that cannot be put into words. Music therapists are committed to supporting clients of any age and ability regardless of musical skill, culture or background.
In a music therapy session, instruments and voices are used to help people to communicate in their own musical language whatever the ability.
