The roots of Dramatherapy lie in drama, theatre, psychology, anthropology, education and play.
Dramatherapy helps you express difficult thoughts and feelings in a safe space. Using art, music, objects, stories, puppets, role play, scripts, myth and movement, you can experiment with different ways of behaving to find your own voice, increase your self-confidence, self esteem and mental and emotional flexibility. You will get the opportunity to tell your own story, examine relationship issues and increase your sense of play and spontaneity to take back control of your life, and look forward with positivity and hope for the future.
Dramatherapy is used in schools, mental health, general health and social care settings, prisons, hospices, and in the voluntary sector.
