According to the American Music Therapy Association, Music Therapy is an established health profession in which music is used as a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals. This form of therapy also provides an avenue for communication that can be helpful to those who find difficulty in expressing themselves verbally.

The provision of these treatments have been made possible in Seychelles through Doctor Music, a business owned and managed by therapists Anastasiya Verkhtutova and Aleksei Goloviznin. SIB’s Investment Analysts met with the owners at their studio at Beau Vallon for a post-investment support visit.

The team learnt about the business in detail as Ms. Verkhtutova, who has studied music therapy extensively, explained its benefits and uses in treating primarily speech impediment issues. She shared that most of their clients are children whose parents have heard of the business and its benefits, and who are now seeing the results through their children’s speech and overall demeanor.

Other than helping with speech impediments, music therapy also offers remedial benefits for insomnia and depression. Doctor Music aims to expand their sessions in the future to be able to cater for clients suffering from these ailments. The owners also described the business’ plan to train new specialists so that they are able to not only take on more clients but to work with different organisations simultaneously. Doctor Music is incredibly proud of all its clients and the progress they have shown, and as such would like to showcase their talent through a concert in the future.

In sharing other future plans as well as constraints they are currently facing as a business, the owners were able to receive the professional advice from the Investment Analysts and were offered assistance should their need further post-investment support.
