Hi there. How are you? Chances are, you are viewing my profile because this question is asked many times - but where is there a safe space to explore what we are REALLY feeling? Whether it's Counselling, Dramatherapy or Clinical Supervision (Practitioners and Therapists') you're looking for - you're in the right place.
I am a registered Dramatherapist, Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor.
What is Dramatherapy?
This is an alternative approach to conventional talking therapies. This approach uses creative techniques, such as use of metaphors, stories, role play, embodiment and use of props to explore personal issues.
I have a background in Counselling since 2002 after I qualified with a Bsc Hons in Counselling and Psychology at Roehampton University. I have further-developed my practice by completing a Professional Certificate in Criminal Justice, Level 4 Professional Certificate Work And Guidance with Young People, FPA Post-Graduate Certificate in Delivering Sex and Relationship Education to Young People, MA in Dramatherapy and a Diploma in Clinical Supervision in 2014 (Individuals and Groups), On-Going Child Protection training.
As a Therapist, I specialise in working with the following:
- Children aged 8 years up to Adolescence
- Self Harm
- Panic attacks and anxiety
- Race-Related discrimination
- Self Esteem
- Domestic Violence
- Sexual Abuse
- Gang-affiliated issues
As a Clinical Supervisor, I specialise in working with Therapists and Professionals working with clients who are in Private Practice and/working within the context of Education, Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Social Services, Substance Misuse and those working with BME clients.
I deliver Clinical Supervision to Psychotherapists', Counsellors, Creative-Arts Therapists', Trainee Therapists', Social Workers, Teachers (including SLT), Mentors, Youth Workers, Keyworkers and School Counsellors.
