Counterpoint Music Therapy is a health and wellness clinic in Ottawa where music is used skilfully as a therapeutic stimulus to achieve primarily non-musical treatment goals. 

Summary

At present, Counterpoint Music Therapy is serving children and adolescents aged 5 and up with most types of special needs (unfortunately, our current clinical space is located on the third floor and there is no elevator, therefore, clients must be ambulatory) . A typical experience at Counterpoint Music Therapy takes place in 12 week periods, including one assessment session and 11 weekly one-to-one sessions. 

A music therapy assessment is a tool used to get to know a child in order to set the goals which the weekly music interventions will be targeting. 

An intervention plan with long-term goals and shorter-term objectives will be established based on the results of the assessment session. 

After the child has completed an eleven week course of 45-minute individual music therapy sessions, a treatment summary will be shared with the care-giver to discuss the results and determine further action.
