Music for Wellbeing

Music Therapy is the planned use of music by a registered music therapist, to assist with healing and personal growth.

Music therapy builds on people's strengths and capabilities and can help people engage with life and its challenges in new ways. People often respond to music when circumstances, illness or injury, might otherwise impact their quality of life. Music therapy helps connect mind, body, heart and spirit, and helps connect us to each other. It can lift a person’s mood and increase motivation. People often find a new way to express themselves when they participate in music therapy. Music Therapy is suitable for people of any age, ability or background and you don't need to be musical to benefit from it.

During music therapy your therapist will work with you to do any of these things:

• listen to music that is important to you and talk about it
• play instruments or sing songs
• write new lyrics to existing songs
• write an original song
• use music for relaxation

We have a qualified Music Therapists available at Skylight - Please contact our Counselling staff for more information.
