Do You Have a Specific Goal or Need?

Individual music therapy is personalized one-on-one care.

Individual Music Therapy in Calgary & Area

Music Therapy is a unique field that combines counselling skills with the use of music in a variety of ways that do not require nor necessarily endow musical skills. In music therapy, a professionally trained, certified therapist uses music to address the specific needs of those in their care. The music may be made by the therapist on an instrument or with their voice, or it may be a recording played on an audio device. An individual music therapy session may include listening to music and responding to it in some way such as vocalization, talking, moving, etc. It may include making music on drums or other percussion instruments or even discussing and writing lyrics.

Whatever the content, our music therapist will design each of your sessions specifically for you to meet your needs and goals. He will evaluate your progress and provide feedback to you and/or your healthcare team as requested or required. 

Individual music therapy sessions are helpful for people of all ages and walks of life. They can help with every aspect of your well-being:

  • Mental

  • Emotional

  • Physical

  • Social

  • Cognitive

Individual music therapy sessions can also be extremely beneficial in specific areas of need such as:

  • Facing challenges with anxiety and depression

  • Working through trauma

  • Supporting a child with autism or a loved one with dementia

  • Recovering from a variety of neurological conditions

  • Speech support in the case of apraxia

  • And much more.
