Music Therapy

 

Music therapy is the creative use of music to promote health and wellness. Trained music therapists create musical experiences with clients to facilitate positive change and enhanced quality of life.

Music is a dynamic medium and can be used therapeutically in many different ways.  It can help us to communicate, it affects our moods, and it stimulates many areas of the brain. Music can help us to build motivation and enhance our ability to be in the present moment. 

Techniques used in music therapy sessions vary according to the particular needs of a client. Interventions can include:

  • Breath work, vocalizing, toning and singing
  • Instrumental improvisation
  • Songwriting and composition
  • Active listening, guided imagery, lyrical analysis and meditation
  • Music assisted relaxation techniques 
  • Dance & movement activities

Since 1999, my music therapy practice has allowed me to worked with an extremely diverse population of individuals from all walks of life. I have recently relocated to beautiful White Rock, BC and am building a practice here in the area.

My areas of specialty are:

  • Addictions
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Brain Injury
  • Dementia
  • Hospice & Palliative Care

I take a client centred approach to my practice. Through addressing the physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of a group or individual, I create a personalized treatment plan that is relevant and specific to each of my clients.

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am currently accepting new clients and look forward to building new relationships in the lower mainland. Please connect with me if you would like any further information about my music therapy services or if you would like to arrange for a consultation. 

 

Kindly,

Trina Nestibo, B.A., B.M.T.
