What is Music Therapy?


People with psychological disorders or psychosocial problems (such as fears, behavioral problems, traumas) do not always find sufficient support in regular mental health care. When it is difficult to talk about it or find words for it, there are creative therapies, such as music therapy, in which the focus lies on 'doing and experiencing' instead of verbalizing.

Your questions will be viewed, examined and treated through means of music together with the music therapist. By making music together (active music therapy) and/or listening to music (receptive music therapy) you can become more aware of the feelings, emotions and thoughts that are there and thus gain (new) insights, safely try out (new) possibilities. and learn to break through patterns. With music therapy you can learn to solve, accept and/or limit your questions in a playful manner.


You do not need to be able to play a musical instrument or have experience with making music to go to music therapy. Everyone, all ages, who would like to handle their problems/questions through experiential work, can go into music therapy. These are just a few examples for whom music therapy can be used:

- Unborn or premature babies

- Children with developmental delays, within the autistic spectrum, physical limitations

- Teens with social-emotional needs

- Adults with burnouts, addictions or mental illness

- Elderly people with brain diseases or social-emotional help questions
