Sound Connections Music Therapy offers music therapy services throughout the Annapolis Valley which includes Windsor and the Kings, Annapolis and Hants counties. Specialized programs are developed to promote physical and emotional wellness and to address the unique needs of individuals and groups living with a variety of challenges.
Music Therapy assists a wide range of people who live with challenges related to brain injury, chronic and acute pain, mental health issues, trauma, learning or developmental delays, dementia, life threatening illnesses, addictions, aging in long-term care, autism, and at-risk behaviour.
A music therapist meets each individual person in music making and it is the process of this interaction that forms the positive change. All individuals at any level of cognitive or physical functioning can participate in music therapy. The cognitive connections are found in music with a focus of maintaining wellness by reducing stress and by providing assistance in coping with difficult life transitions. Services include both group and individual programs.
