Are You Living with a Trauma You Cannot Verbalize?

Music Therapy can help process painful emotions and events.

Music Therapy for Trauma in the Calgary Area

In recent years, there have been major advances in our understanding of trauma and of how our minds and bodies react to it. Studies have shown that speaking about the trauma in a safe space can help the brain synthesize the memory and the events. Similarly, studies have also shown that musical improvisation has a similar effect. Therefore, when we “play" our trauma with a trusted professional, we allow the healing process to unfold. This, then, makes music therapy for trauma an ideal treatment for individuals like children and adults who might find talk therapy intimidating, as well as for people who are receptive to the creative arts.

If you think music therapy might be a good fit for you or a loved one, please contact Wood Counselling & Therapy to learn more about sessions in Calgary and the surrounding area.
