About Music and Art Therapy
Music therapy combines the power of music and the skills of a registered music therapist to help support you and reach your potential.
Art Therapy sessions follow your individual interests and abilities to reach your identified goals. No art making skills are necessary. While engaging in art making, and when your hands are busy, you may find it easier to open up and tell your story. At therapy can also help you to improve motor skills and physical co-ordination.
Music and art therapy are about using music and art to help you with whatever it is you need. Whether it’s improving your speech, getting your body moving, expressing your feelings, connecting with others, supporting your learning or helping you to relax, music and art therapy can help.
Our services are delivered through individual sessions for children, teenagers & families, group sessions, workshops and professional development.
All therapy services are conducted by fully trained registered music therapists and registered art therapists who have experience in helping you reach your potential.
Newcastle Music & Art Therapy is a registered NDIS provider.
