Music, Arts & Play Therapies
Explore the journey
Creativity and play can take us beyond words, and help us to discover different parts of ourselves as we explore the possibilities. Creative expression can help us express ideas and sybolism 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 & Play Therapies can provide an alternative way to express ones inner world and explore new perspectives and ideas to help support the journey of being human.
These therapies can be particularly beneficial for:
children & families
Individuals with special needs
those recovering from trauma
and those where talk-therapy may be less effective.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during a Music, Arts or Play Therapy session?
Every session is different, because every person is unique. First sessions will be a chance for us to get to know each other, whilst exploring some fun or creative activities. Each therapy is different, and so is every person, so the way we work together will be unique. Children and adults share in different ways, as do people living with special needs, so it's important to build up a trusting relationship where everyone feels comfortable.
What are your fees?
General hourly session fees at the studio are $80 for one-to-one therapy sessions. 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.
Group Therapy sessions can also be booked, and will be quoted accordingly.
How long will I use Music, Arts or Play Therapy for?
Some sessions might aim to address something in particular, or they may be for ongoing support. 3 sessions to begin with with a review of support to make sure we are a good match are important. After we have established a therapeutic relationship a session can also be booked casually when needed
How long does a session run?
Regular sessions 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.
