Family Coaching:

Family coaches work with clients to establish their needs whether they are as a family or an individual depending on thes issue. A single family has many moving parts. For example, a behavioural challenge with a child may require sessions with the parents and child together, then just the parents and finally each parent separately. Family coaches can counsel couples, singles or children.

Music Therapy:

Margaret may recommend incorporating music into her coaching sessions. Some clients find adding music creates the supplementary support needed to find clarity with their unique issues. Margaret may compose original music for clients to use personally on an ongoing basis as coping tool, thereby cutting down on the need for frequent coaching sessions. When this is the case, Margaret will create a unique piece of music based on the client’s specific needs.

“Margaret has contributed insights and tangible advice that have brought me both a deeper understanding of myself and clarity around what I want, what I need, what I should do, and why. At times, her words of wisdom have become a sort of mantra that I draw upon, which helps to propel me into a better place. There is something about her innate blend of intuition, creativity, and logic that allows her to see life situations in ways that are sensible and astute, but that also fit with, and honour, who we are and that give consideration to the others in our life.”  (Leanne: Working woman and mother seeking personal inner balance)

Music Therapy

(Music FOR therapy)

This unique offering, created by Margaret Dahlberg, is an innovative therapeutic method in which the client receives a unique recording of music that represents them and their needs, struggles, challenges and goals.

With this recording, the client may listen in the privacy of their own space at the moment they really need it. There is no need to book appointments and potentially miss the window in which their need for support from a therapist is at its greatest.

How Does it work?

Margaret will meet with the client and have 1-3 personal coaching sessions to establish their particular needs and goals. She will then create and record a piece of music that represents this person.

How Does she do it?

Margaret has a developed a specific technique to compose therapeutic pieces of music. She possesses a unique ability to combine her in depth musical training and her intensive coaching training with her empathetic intuition to find the musical sounds that will impact her clients and create potential for healing and transformation.
