Registered Music Therapist
Jack Thomas completed his Master of Creative Music Therapy at Western Sydney University, and has since gained a wealth of experience working with a range of client populations in a variety of clinical settings.
These include Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Australia, where Jack worked with children with neurodevelopmental conditions to develop cognitive and behavioral skills and adults with acquired brain injuries, using music therapy interventions to recover fine and gross motor, and executive function. Jack also runs a music therapy program in a high school that specifically caters for secondary students diagnosed with emotional disorders and mental health issues, as well as seeing clients with cerebral palsy through his private practice.
Jack’s strength-based and patient centered approach to music therapy aligns with the values of Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, with a focus on respecting and empowering the individual and collaborating to ensure the highest level of service is provided and all individuals’ needs are fully met.
Jack strongly believes in the transformative powers of music and thoroughly enjoys providing quality of life experiences to patients at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
