Personal Therapy can be a real investment in your future and contributes positively towards wellbeing and can enhance emotional intelligence. It is a completely unique experience and can be accessed by anyone willing to engage in a therapeutic process to begin new opportunities of awareness, connection and creativity.
Therapy can evoke shifts in behaviour and using embodied techniques, movement and reflectivity can provide the means to a deeper sense of connection to yourself.
The session represents your own space to explore in a safe and confidential space. I support client-led process and integrate mind-body integrative techniques, movement psychotherapy and creative exploration through image and symbolic representation (such as Art Therapy and Sandtray Therapy) to support verbal psychotherapy.
Weekly sessions are 1 hour and booked and paid for in advance of each month.
Please contact me to enquire about costs.
Group Therapy Creative Workshops
Group Therapy sessions are closed groups which meet together once a week over a fixed period of time. The group is a mutually supportive and confidential safe space shared by all members. A group-led therapeutic process is encouraged along with other methods of support which can include psycho-education and the exploration of creative techniques using body-based connectivity.
Group members often find common ground and work towards a deeper understanding of the self in relation to others. The process can be hugely beneficial for personal growth and as a means to move beyond thoughts and behaviours.

Links with the Older Population
I provide group Dance Movement Therapy in residential care homes to support physical and emotional wellbeing. Sessions are gentle fun and supportive and are bespoke to the needs of the group. Group sessions take place in the lounge or activity room at the care home and require 2 members of care staff to be present during sessions.
Group sessions typically include:
Gentle chair based exercise
Creative movement and dance
Group connectivity through non-verbal activity
Sharing thoughts and feelings
Sensory and relaxation
Social contact and a shared sense of joy.
I also provide individual Sensory Sessions for those who are isolated due sensory impairment. These focus on body awareness and connectivity along with therapeutic support.
Links with Schools
Dance Movement Therapy can be hugely beneficial to help adults and children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and for those who have specific behavioural needs or sensory impairments. The movement intervention and non-verbal aspect can enable unique opportunities for connectivity and communication whilst encouraging physical exercise and creative to support social and emotional development.
Group sessions are usually 1 hour or shorter depending on the needs of the group and are hosted in a school or community setting with disabled facilities.
