I trained in dramatherapy after experiencing the life changing effects of therapy myself. I chose dramatherapy as it connects the mind and body and enables real change through creativity, it offers a new way of looking at difficulties we experience and expressing and processing emotions.
Dramatherapy is a psychotherapy rooted in theory and research. The word dramatherapy can seem daunting but it has nothing to do with being able to act or teaching acting. It is a therapy that uses creative techniques such as creative writing, music, art, movement, story and role play to help express and process difficult emotions. It is client centred so how creative you are very much depends on you. Some prefer to keep to just talking in our sessions which is fine, the focus will always be on what is best for you and creating a safe environment and trusting relationship. Others like to use music and art and some use role play to help with difficult situations, prepare themselves for an event coming up or discover more about themselves and the roles they play in life.
