Integrating music therapy to help kids/youths identify, manage and cope with their emotions and triggers.

Ages 8-11yrs

It’s been a tough year.

Maybe even tougher for our kids.

Chances are, your child …

  • Is unable to talk about their feelings, and/or is even aware of them
  • Is depressed/low mood, isolated or “acting out”.
  • Doesn’t feel like they have a safe outlet to share specifically about feelings, especially new feelings related to the pandemic

As a parent, it’s hard to see your child struggling. All you want to do is support them, but you feel stuck and the strategies you’ve tried don’t seem to be working.

You may have searched endlessly online for different programs and support that can help them manage the amount of stress and anxiety they’re constantly feeling.

This is why I created Resilient Minds – 6 Week Emotional Support for Youths. To help kids manage and navigate their emotions and help deal with the increased stress and anxiety they’re feeling.

Lead by a Registered Physiotherapist and Music Therapist, Resilient Minds program will provide your child with…

  • Increased emotional awareness and language
  • Specific ideas for coping strategies, practiced in the group sessions
  • Environment to explore different responses to feelings and incorporating creative ways to this exploration
  • Connection with other youths
  • Creative activities with music

As a result, your child will…

  • Effectively articulate and express their thoughts and feelings
  • Have an increase in self-awareness and communication
  • Have healthy coping strategies, especially before the stressful situations
  • Improve confidence and well-being
  • Explore new and creative activities that open doors when feeling “stuck”/depressed or wanting an outlet for their experiences.
