Dramatherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses action methods to facilitate creativity, communication, imagination, learning insight and growth.
A Dramatherapy session is a method of working that may incorporate the use of music and sound, story making and storytelling, movement and playing amongst many other methods.
Like Art Therapy, it is not necessary to have any experience of theatre or acting to benefit from Dramatherapy and it can be helpful for those who find talking about their experience challenging. Dramatherapists can support the therapeutic process by offering creative ways to explore any issue that you may wish to engage with, whether emotional, physical, educational, cultural, or otherwise.
