Our Registered Music Therapist uses musical activities to address non-musical, health related goals. 

Our Registered Music Therapist usually works alongside other health professionals and can help with:

  • Developmental goals, such as communication, thought processing and social skills
  • Parent-child relationships
  • Mood issues and emotional self-regulation
  • Stress, anxiety and agitation
  • Pain management
  • Neuro-rehabilitation following stroke or brain injury, including speech, movement and thought processing
  • Social and emotional wellbeing for people with life-limiting conditions, such as Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis.

We provide Music Therapy services to inpatients, outpatients and the community across the West Coast DHB.
