What is a Registered Music Therapist (RMT)?
A Registered Music Therapist is a person who is registered with the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA). They would have completed a certified university course and regularly maintain their skills and build knowledge through regular professional development.
What is Telehealth?
Sessions are conducted online. Instead of your Music Therapist coming to your home, you engage musically through a device such as an iPad or Laptop. Telehealth was introduced as a service during lock-downs due to COVID-19. With its success, many therapists still continue to offer this service.
Who is Telehealth for?
Clients who are immune suppressed or admitted for inpatient treatment preventing face-to-face contact
Anyone who finds in-person sessions overwhelming
People who are living in an area with limited access to a RMT
How much does it cost?
Telehealth and face-to-face sessions are charged at the same rate.
During the first 1-2 sessions, the Music Therapist will see if Telehealth is a suitable method for the participant and whether the session could be shorter/greater. Sessions are usually a minimum of 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Fees are based on the current standard in the allied health professions guideline and pricing guidelines by the NDIS.
Fees are aligned with the 2022 NDIS Price Guide $188 per hour
Non-contact time of 15 minutes is always added to the invoice so that RMT can prepare resources, evaluate program and write notes post session.
NDIS related Info
Music Therapy carried out by a Registered Music Therapist (RMT) is recognised by the NDIS under CAPACITY BUILDING- IMPROVED DAILY LIVING.

At this stage, Bloom and Flow is NOT registered as an NDIS provider. Self-Managed and Plan Managed clients can access our services.
Will I be charged the same fee if I have technical issues?
This will be at the discretion of the therapist and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The therapist will certainly be lenient with initial teething issues, however a minimum session fee and the cancellation policy will still apply.
