Music & Arts Therapy
Explore the journey
Creativity can take us beyond words, and help us to discover different parts of ourselves as we explore the possibilities. Creative expression can help us go beyond words as we provide space to extend opportunities for new personal journeys and growth.
Talk therapy isn't for everyone, and sometimes situations can be difficult to talk about.
Creative Therapies can provide an alternative way to express oneself and explore new perspectives.
Creative Therapies can be particularly beneficial for:
those recovering from trauma
Individuals with special needs
children & families
and those where talk-therapy may be less effective.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during a Music & Arts Therapy session?
Every session is different, because every person is unique. Your first session will be a chance for you to get to know me and share information about yourself, whilst exploring some creative activities.
After this first session, you will work on some small projects and ideas during your sessions, and will also be encouraged to keep a journal which you can work in outside of your sessions.
What are your fees?
Regular hourly therapy session fees at the Artscope Music studio (The Oaks, NSW, Aust) are $95 one-on-one, and $130/hr for families/couples. Home visits may be available for an additional fee.
Sessions conducted outside of the studio will be priced according to location, travel time, and materials needed. Payments are made at the beginning of the session.
How long will I use Music & Arts Therapy for?
You might only like to have a few sessions to address something in particular, or you might see the benefit in having ongoing support. You're in charge. You will generally benefit from having 3 sessions to begin with, and the we can review your support. You can also book in a session when you feel you need it.
How long does a session run?
Generally a booked session will run for 1 hour, but sometimes a client might request a longer session. This can be arranged beforehand, or occasionally your session may be able to be extended if time is available. Please advise me as soon as possible if you think you may need a longer session.
