Dramatherapy utilises dramatic and creative tools to achieve therapeutic goals.
In essence its aim is to facilitate personal growth and promote mental health.
Dramatherapy is firmly grounded in Psychological theory.
Within the sessions the dramatherapist may use improvisation, mask work, puppetry,
sand tray, drumming, story telling, story making, voice and body work to to create
methods to engage clients in effecting psychological, emotional and social changes.
The therapy gives equal validity to body and mind within the dramatic context. These will enable the client to explore difficult and painful life experiences through an indirect approach.
Pursuit of Self
"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
Dramatherapy draws upon the imagination, which opens our world to possibilities. These possibilities are the keys that unlock the door to our potential and healing. These bring about the corresponding actions that enable us to move forward. Dramatherapy isn't flighty! It's grounded and helps bring about a sense of self, which you learn for yourself and which the Dramatherapist helps facilitates.
I am a fully qualified Dramatherapist. Trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. I am registered with The British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth) and the Health & Care Professions Council. (Hcpc) I am also DBS checked and fully insured.
I specialise in young child, adolescents and adults. I work across the education, charity and private sector.
I wholehearted believe in Dramatherapy and the power it has to enable change. As one embarks on the journey of self, the changes are meaningful and lasting because you discover them. I would love the opportunity to journey with you, in your movement of the soul.
