What is music therapy?
Music therapy is a psychotherapy…a bit like counselling. The most obvious difference is that a counselling session might rely entirely on words. Music therapy doesn’t have to involve a single one! Most importantly, our clients lead our sessions, and music therapy is a joint exploration of instruments, sensory and experiential work, songs and many other things! Beside having a great time, we want to help you reach your goals. These goals are different for everyone, therefore every session might be different! Some of our clients feel and act differently on every day of the week…that’s OK too.
Music is a universal language…you can be from anywhere in the world, with any history, in any current situation. We can still reach you with music. Even just a breath is musical to us, and it’s for this reason that we work with people of all ages, abilities and pathologies.
We work with other professionals, teachers, healthcare professionals and family members because you need to have the best possible support network. Our aim is to help you develop and grow as an individual or group.
Some people might find it useful to have a little extra information about MusAbility and what we offer. Maybe you need to get approval from somebody to work with us! If this is you, we’ve created a handy little document for you to download here…
