Many of us feel stuck in our daily lives, not knowing exactly how to get the progress that we want. Depression, anxiety, and trauma can hold us back from where we deserve to be and can negatively affect our well-being and relationships. No two people are the same and it is my goal to help you recognize your own unique strengths, integrating a case-specific approach to create your unique therapy plan. I am here to offer mental health support in a non-judgemental, friendly, and compassionate space.
I am currently a student member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association and have completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology through UBCO. As I complete my practicum for my Masters in Counselling Psychology I will be guided by an accredited supervisor..
One form of therapy that I offer is one that is music-integrated, using a brief singing lesson at the beginning of the session. This can be helpful with those who are seeking to modulate their autonomic nervous system, reduce anxiety, depression, and stress, while building skills that will encourage mindfulness, self-confidence, and competency.
Some Specific Types of Therapy I Offer:
-Child and Youth Counselling
-Virtual as well as In-Person
Some of the areas I can support you with include:
-Depression -Building self-confidence, self-esteem, and sense of self
-Health and wellness

Aimee Murdoch, BMT
Musical Therapist & Behavioural Interventionist
It’s my core belief that every child has a right to feel and express their emotions without judgement or repercussions. In a moment where a child may find it difficult to communicate, music therapy helps create a space that allows music to be the voice.
I started my musical career at the age of 4 years old and utilized piano as a strong coping mechanism in my childhood. It was early on that I discovered the importance of using music as a form of expression.
I completed an intense five-year degree receiving my Bachelor’s in Music Therapy, which then continued with a 1000 hour internship to develop my skills. I am in the process of taking my board exam in the next few months that will finalize my training and make me a certified music therapist.
I have put in over 1500 clinical hours in multiple different populations including geriatrics, psychiatric, children, and immigrant mothers and their children. I am particularly passionate about working with children and aim to provide a compassionate, empathetic, and fun approach.
