What is drama and movement therapy?

Drama and movement therapy is a form of psychotherapy.
It works with clients’ emotional, intellectual and physical selves to increase well-being, manage chronic mental illness and feelings of distress and to realise personal, creative and professional potential. Clients come to me for a variety of reasons, including depression and anxiety, managing difficult relationships, processing trauma and to grapple with feelings of being "stuck" or of lacking meaning.
I use a variety of approaches in therapy sessions, based on what best suits each client.
Some people prefer to stick to talking. With others I might suggest working through the body using movement, breath and physicality. I often encourage artistic expression through art materials, writing or drama exercises. Most sessions combine several modes at once.
I believe the role of therapy is to provide a space for people to reconnect not just with health but with joy.
