What is Dramatherapy?
Dramatherapy is an expressive form of psychotherapy that uses action methods, such as DRAMA, STORY AND PLAY to help us understand how we can change ourselves and the way we live. It offers alternative and creative ways of communicating and understanding what is often difficult to put into words and at times overwhelming to deal with.
Dramatherapy is accessible to all and you do not need any previous experience in drama or theatre to benefit from this approach.
I work with children, young people and adults individually or in groups.
Clients can benefit from Dramatherapy to:
- build confidence
- develop self-expression
- encourage self-esteem
- initiate personal change
- help with stress, anxiety and depression
- reflect and process loss and bereavement
- support parenting
- explore relationships
I have been working as a drama and movement therapist for 20 years in the education and community sectors. I work in nurseries, children centres, primary and secondary schools, pupil referral units with children young people and their parents who have been identified as having emotional and behavioural issues, learning disabilities and who are on the autistic spectrum. My work involves liaising with parents, teachers and other external agencies.
I offer individual, pair and group supervision face to face, by Skype or phone to creative arts therapists, teachers, counsellors and individuals wanting to improve and reflect on their practice.
The supervision uses creative methods to explore and reflect on practice and clinical issues.
I have been a supervisor for 8 years and work with a range of students and experienced professionals to support and develop their practice.
