Dramatherapy is a form of psychological therapy which draws on techniques from drama and theatre, to offer an expressive and creative therapy. It can be helpful for anyone who wants to make emotional, psychological and social changes within their lives. Dramatherapists work with individuals and groups. People do not need to have had any previous experience or expertise in drama in order to use Dramatherapy.
Dramatherapy uses play, movement, movement with touch and sound, storytelling, enactment and improvisation to express and communicate what may be difficult to say. This can offer a way to express or make sense of difficult emotions, relationships or events safely, whilst being playful, creative and imaginative. Dramatherapy offers the possibility to rehearse new ways of relating to self and to others, devise new endings to old patterns and develop new roles. Dramatherapy offers an opportunity to gain insight and get to know yourself better.
