What happens in a session?
Every music therapy session looks a little different, as each client has their own unique set of wants and needs in therapy. We develop session plans that best suit the strengths and needs of our clients. A session may involve singing, playing an instrument, recreating songs, song-writing, improvisation, rhythmic based activities, mindfulness, writing musical stories, music-based discussion, playlist creation, and verbal counselling.
How does the therapeutic process work?
Like other therapeutic disciplines, music therapy starts with an assessment. The Music Therapist then formulates individualized goals based on the assessment, client input, and information from a client’s family and/or treatment team. The Music Therapist then implements a support plan that uses music to help reach these goals.
Goals continue to be evaluated, adapted, and built upon depending on the client’s progress.
