About me

I am a Dramatherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Dramatherapy is a creative arts therapy, and can utilise writing, drawing, art making, meditation, grounding techniques, movement and more. However, I always begin with where you are. Dramatherapists use ideas from psychology, our early roots in human history, as well as the rich history of theatre. Dramatherapy offers a safe space for you to explore you experiences, and bring about healing.

Sessions can offer a space to bring sadness, anger, confusion but also Dramatherapy sessions can be a place to make marks, connections, bring about inspiration and uplift you.

I usually suggest three initial sessions and then a review. This is for you to see if the type of therapy suits you and your needs. During the three sessions I can make and carry out an assessment. We can collaborate on how to proceed.

At this time I am offering 1:1 sessions online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I run a weekly drama workshop in a recovery college for people experiencing mental health and homelessness recovery. I offer Dramatherapy sessions in a complex needs and homelessness service.

My experience includes working alongside people with long term mental health problems as a Support Worker for over 5 years and as a Duty Worker within a specialist domestic violence organisation.

I am passionate about creativity and have professional experience in the arts and theatre sector.

I have a MA in Dramatherapy.
