Music therapy Wellington and Wairarapa

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to support the development of children and young people with diverse learning needs.

A music therapy programme can assist in:

  • improving motor skills
  • developing both non-verbal and verbal communication
  • developing self-confidence and self-awareness
  • developing attention span and focus
  • strengthening emotional and social skills, such as turn taking and sharing.

I am a New Zealand registered music therapist specialising in working with children with diverse learning needs in the Wellington and Wairarapa region. My current clinical practice includes working 1:1 and in groups with pre-school and school aged children in the home and school setting. In a past life I studied opera and worked in broadcasting. My role as a music therapist now combines my love of music with my passion for working with children and their families, and seeing children of all abilities reaching their full potential.

"Pip has a magical way of bonding with our child, whilst understanding his needs and abilities"
