What is Dramatherapy and who is it for?

Do I have to be good at acting?

Dramatherapy is a form of psychotherapy that enables people to express emotions, thoughts, anxieties through creative activities not just through words alone.

The very act of being creative is healing.

 Working through metaphor with stories, myths, objects, paints, characters, masks, puppets or other creative media can give distance and objectivity for individuals to reflect on the past and to find their way forward.

Dramatherapy sessions can be on an individual basis or in a group.

 You do not have to be good at acting to participate in Dramatherapy but rather an openness to change and a desire to challenge yourself to move into the future you want to live.

Dramatherapy helps people with mental illness to manage and gain insight into their conditions.


Dramatherapy can also help people who want to explore themselves, to help reduce anxiety and stress as well as raise self esteem and self confidence. 

 I work with children and adults.

My areas of work include:

Learning Disabilities including non-verbal clients

Autism and Asperger's Syndrome

Physical Disabilities and degenarative conditions

Depression

Coping with bereavement

Looked After Children/ Children in Care

Adopted children

Attachment Difficulties.

Teens with challenges

Therapeutic Education

Skills for Successful Learning

Many children find the hustle and bustle of school life a challenge. It can be 'extra' tough for children who have Autism or Asperger's, who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or who have Attachment Difficulties.
I am able to offer support in school for children who need a one to one intervention.
Also for children not able to attend school I can offer one to one tutoring either at my studio or in the home as appropriate. The aim is to provide an 'Engagement with Learning Package' to help children to feel they can be successful learners; to allow themselves to make mistakes and learn from them; to build self esteem and social skills.
Contact me today to find out how I can help.
