I work as a professional musician and specialise as a freelance music therapist. I have twenty years of experience with perceived disability, stroke, physical disability, mental health, autism and acquired brain injury. Music therapy can help support many people who might be experiencing challenges (including cognitive, intellectual, physical, emotional, or social) or wishing to improve their well-being. Everyone can benefit from music, and there is no right or wrong way to express it. I prepare a creative, tailored program to see how music can work best for the individual. We write songs, play songs, jam, record music, and learn an instrument no matter the skill level. It’s good to meet and work out what works best.
Ways in which music therapy benefits individuals are: reduce anxiety or stress, regulate moods, increase motivation, manage anger and frustration, manage challenging behaviours, promote creativity, improve communication, physical speech function, social skills, social interaction, independence, help promote positive social behaviour. Music therapy can increase memory, self-awareness and inhibition, non-verbal and verbal working memory, emotional self-regulation, self-motivation, planning, problem-solving and improve attention.
