ONLINE MUSIC THERAPY
I offer online music therapy sessions that are safe and effective. I am fully are aware of the risks of virtual therapy and acknowledge that no online service is ever completely secure. I will do my best to ensure that every session remains private and confidential. Sessions are offered via Zoom, Skype or WhatsApp.
Fees for online therapy are the same as for in-person music therapy. If you are struggling financially due to the pandemic, please feel free to discuss with me as payment plans are available.
Computer set-up for online therapy
A computer with audio/video capabilities and good internet connection is required.
Online music therapy has the potential to serve remote and rural families, support mental health in vulnerable clients, and address current mental health issues caused by the pandemic in the following ways:
MANAGEMENT OF STRESS AND ANXIETY
Individual and group music therapy sessions are available to individuals and their families who require assistance in finding and developing healthy coping mechanisms to deal with stress and anxiety.
MEANINGFUL SOCIAL INTERACTION
Music therapy sessions are available for individuals who are experiencing the negative impact of living in isolation. This service is highly recommended for the elderly, young children/teenagers and those who live alone.
The online platform offers individuals to do a lot of the "work" themselves and in their own time. This service is recommended for those who want to use this time on personal reflection and self-exploration.
