What Does A Music Therapist Do?
Music therapists are musicians and have therapeutic training. They provide music therapy to children who struggle with communication, emotional regulation, motor integration, and social interaction. To create a customised therapy plan, a music therapist will work with you and other therapists to assess your child’s needs and goals.
What To Expect In Your Initial Music Therapy Consultation?
Your Music Therapist will:
- Identify what is going on for your child and why some difficulties or behaviours might be happening
- Provide you with a plan to get your child moving in the right direction immediately
- Create an individualised solution to help you get the results that your family needs

Who will be my child’s music therapist?
We value your child and your family and want to help them reach their full potential. Each time you visit our clinic, you will see the same therapist. This allows your child and your family to get to know the therapist who will guide your child’s health journey. This also means the therapist will become familiar with how your child learns as their skills change and develop.
All our therapists have a Master of Music Therapy degree and are members of the professional body, the Australian Music Therapy Association. Our therapists have worked with children of all abilities and ages.
Our therapists are required to continually update their skills. They are required to attend professional development workshops and conferences in order to keep providing the Chatterbox community with the latest, most research-based therapy.
