A Bit About Therapy, Supervision and Student Support
When we meet I will learn a bit about what you want from the services I offer. I will discuss with you whether the most helpful approach would be dramatherapy, EMDR, individual or group work. In the case of mentoring, we will discuss your aspirations. I will provide you information so you can make an informed choice. My services are tailored to meet your needs.
Skype is also possible.
Services I Offer
Dramatherapy is a form of psychological therapy in which all of the performance arts are utilized within the therapeutic relationship. Dramatherapists are both artists and clinicians and draw on their trainings in theatre/drama and therapy to create methods to engage clients in effecting psychological, emotional and social changes. The therapy gives equal validity to body and mind within the dramatic context; stories, myths, play texts, puppetry, masks and improvisation are examples of the range of artistic interventions a Dramatherapist may employ. These will enable the client to explore difficult and painful life experiences through an indirect approach (www.badth.org.uk).
Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)
I am fully qualified to offer EMDR. It is a particularly useful therapy for enabling a person to move on from traumatic recall. I have also used EMDR successfully in coaching, to overcome nervousness and negative thoughts. Further information about EMDR can be found at
Clinical Supervision and Mentoring
I am a registered psychotherapy superviser, with many years experience. Sessions will be tailored to your specific needs. Individual and group supervision are offered. There is a discount for learners.
Student and post graduate mentoring
My journey through to achieving my PhD was not smooth. I realise the importance of having support through those tough times. If you feel you need help to get to the finishing line, please contact me. My clinical background also means I can help you with psychological problems, such as depression or anxiety, impinging on your studies.
I am registered with the NMC and HCPC. I have extensive experience as a Dramatherapist, Nurse, EMDR Practitioner and Psychotherapy Superviser. I have had the privilege of working with combat veterans and their families and carers for over 35 years. My PhD ‘The Drama of War, the Theatre of Life – Veterans' Perspectives on a Dramatherapy Journey' underlines the importance I give to the individual's own experience of life and therapy. My doctorate built on my M.Phil: 'Towards a model of dramatherapy for the assessment and treatment of PTSD'.
