The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us. I am continuing to offer music therapy services, via online telehealth sessions. This means using videoconferencing for client sessions in real-time.
There is a lot of research showing the benefits of telehealth. In the interest of maintaining continuity of therapy, I strongly recommend that you trial a session to see if it suits you.
This is also a good way to start music therapy sessions.
What are the potential benefits of telehealth?
- Telehealth decreases exposure to infectious disease;
- Telehealth improves access to music therapy services; and
- Telehealth reduces your need for travel.
We can use devices such as a computer, iPad or a mobile phone to deliver an interactive music therapy service remotely. I have received good feedback about this method of delivering music therapy services and would welcome the opportunity to trial and hopefully continue to deliver services this way.
Please contact me if you would like more information.
