What is music therapy?

Music therapy is a creative therapy used to improve human wellbeing. An instrument for healing, self-expression and personal growth, music therapy allows clients to explore emotions, reduce stress and better understand themselves through the likes of songwriting and lyric substitution, lyrical analysis, playlist creation, therapeutic singing and chanting and music-assisted relaxation.

Music Therapy At EAT LOVE LIVE

We are so excited to have final year music therapy student, Madeleine Chiodo, join us for placement in 2023!

Madeleine is a kind, sensitive and compassionate music therapy student studying at the University of Melbourne. 

She has supported a range of populations during her placements including: autism, NDIS, palliative care patients and adults with intellectual disabilities as she thoroughly enjoys helping people.

While at Eat Love Live, Madeleine will be providing:

  • 1:1 music therapy sessions, Free of Charge. 
  • She will host a group that will run for 8 weeks; Free of Charge. 
  • Maddy will also be working with the ELL team to facilitate music based supervision which we are really looking forward to. 

Madeleine sought an organisation that reflects her lived experience, particularly related to food intolerances and allergies. Furthermore, she uses her knowledge of music to empower efforts of resilience building and confidence in people, thus supporting each stage of the recovery journey. She hopes to share her love of music therapy practice and openly experience the journey towards recovery with those she can support.

The songs progress from identifying emotions such as anxiety and vulnerability to providing a soothing transition towards feelings of hopefulness, reflection and connection. Lastly, the playlist optimises on those feelings and encourages self-compassion, mindfulness and relaxation, with a sliver of self-appreciation through gentle melodies and simple arrangements.

This playlist tenderly unfolds by beginning with songs that identify and validate emotions or struggles, comfortably transitioning to a selection that provides support and reassurance. The playlist reaches its peak with a small assortment of pieces that blend mindfulness, reflection, self-appreciation and feelings of hope. This playlist is intended to be used for before/post meal anxiety and for staying present in the moment.

Some days are more challenging than others, and sometimes we find comfort and support in music. This playlist is a safe haven to help you release the tough emotions we experience from time to time. The journey of this playlist achieves its peak with an uplifting melodic surprise from the legendary Van Morrison, titled "Days Like This". Just as the title suggests, this song (and the curated playlist) echo the transient nature of our daily feelings.

With the arrival of warmer weather comes new opportunities, exciting events and thrilling adventures. As these experiences may revolve around meals, we understand that for some they can trigger feelings of anxiety and stress. Let this playlist be a source of comfort for you as you navigate post-meal emotions. Embrace the season, savour the flavours and let the music be your oasis. You've got this, and we're here with you every step of the way.
