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.
Roya’s private practice is in the centre of Guildford Surrey at The Owl Practice in Quarry Street.
