Anita Nivala – Registered Music Therapist

I am a registered music therapist living in sunny Brisbane. For the past fourteen years I have worked as a music therapist in the aged care setting delivering both group and individual music therapy. I have established multiple music therapy programs in my career, educating staff and clients on the benefits of music therapy and providing strength based, needs focused music therapy. Group music therapy programs have included a choir program, dementia specific groups and generalist groups. I have provided individual music therapy for a diverse range of clients including clients who were socially isolated, suffering from a mental illness, on a palliative care program, had an acquired brain injury, struggling with grief and loss and many others. Early in my career I also worked in private practice both in disabilities and community developmental programs for children. If you have any questions or are interested in a music therapy program please do not hesitate to contact me.
