Our Values and Beliefs
Music Beat Therapy Services provides person-centred, neurodiversity affirming, and accessible therapy services to members of the community who are seeking music therapy.
The term ‘person-centred’ describes service and support that are centred on an individual and their strengths, needs, interests and goals.
Neurodiversity affirming therapy recognises and aims to work with neurological differences, affirming neuroprocessing and supporting authentic wellbeing.
Our Registered Music Therapists and Allied Health Therapy Assistants practice and maintain up to date knowledge, balancing research and valuable lived experience to inform best practice.
Our services are offered in our Clayfield clinic as well as in the home and community settings to ensure accessibility.
We believe that all people have the right to access music and use it to support their health and well-being. We value access and equity in music therapy services, best practice and continuous improvement in the services we offer.
Our services are conducted in ways that respect the dignity, rights and responsibilities of our clients, their families, and our staff.
Music Beat Therapy Services adheres to the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) Code of Ethics, and the NDIS Code of Conduct.
All Music Beat staff work to the highest of clinical standards as outlined in our policies and practices, position descriptions and annual training protocols.
We want to bring music therapy to as many people in the community as we can, and support them to achieve their goals, to tap into the powerful resource that music gives us as a therapeutic tool.
