Music psychotherapy: Guided Imagery and Music (GIM)
A receptive music psychotherapy method based on the ability of classical music to evoke memories, inner visual imageries, emotions and bodily sensations. Combined with verbal conversation before and after the music listening, these experiences anchored in the music, are the core of the psychotherapeutical work for change.

Music & Mindfulness in staff wellness
At the child oncologyward at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, music therapist Catharina Messel was asked to develop a tool to handle the increasing level of work-related stress - a continously increasing problem in the danish healthcaresystem. Her answer was a Music & Mindfulness tool, with active music listening and visualisation. As a result of a great team work with Catharina I composed the music for the tool.
At the moment the project is being evaluated.

”VARA HÄR” (Being Here)
”Vara här” is a music performance where dance, call-response song and play emphasizing both the value of listening and communicating with people around you. Our new songs, mixed with short stories touching upon themes concerning how we - via “being here” in rhythm, harmony and tension can interact with respect and care for each other. The music is an unique aestehtic power that by moving our senses connects the individual to the community and its surroundings.
To all of you from all of all of us: Sofi Hellborg, Sal Dibba og Kirsti Øibakken Pedersen in cooperation with Musik i Syd.
