I am an experienced dramatherapist, a full member of the British Association of Dramatherapists and state registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. I offer a creative approach to help people deal with personal and interpersonal issues, including anxiety,depression, abuse, stress, loss and relationship difficulties.
I also hold a Certificate in Creative Supervision and offer clinical supervision to therapists and counsellors.
Dramatherapy offers safely distanced ways of engaging with difficulties that you may feel are too hot to handle. Using creative action and playful methods, dramatherapy offers opportunities to express and release feelings, and to rehearse changes you want to make in your life. Through dramatherapy you can become more spontaneous, build helpful new awareness, contact inner wisdom and resolve problems. No prior experience of drama is required; simply a willingness to explore.
I am presently offering individual and group therapy for student dramatherapists. Group therapy to be held in Manchester commencing late October 2016, running for 40 sessions concluding by July 2017.
