School Information

Dramatherapy can be beneficial for children and young people in both mainstream and special schools who:

  • are bereaved
  • are either the victim or perpetrator of bullying
  • are on the autistic spectrum
  • wish to improve their relationships
  • are cared for or looked after children
  • are carers
  • suffer life limiting illnesses
  • suffer from low confidence or low self esteem
  • have emotional / behavioural needs
  • are physically disabled
  • have learning disabilities

    I will work alongside the school ensuring the young people concerned receive the best possible network of care. Assessment and on-going progress reports will be made available to key members of staff / care workers whilst respecting the appropriate levels of confidentiality within the session/s. Sessions take place at the same time on the same day and in the same place every week. This provides continuity and safety for the client(s). It is important that the sessions are confidential and that the space is private. Sessions last an hour depending on the client or group. The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to discuss what would be most beneficial for you and the young people in your school. During the time we will discuss together how dramatherapy could benefit you. Group dramatherapy is an opportunity to link, share and gain support from others whilst individual sessions offer more personal support. If you are not sure that this suitable for your school or you want a taster session I run introductory staff workshops upon request. I will also run supportive staff sessions which can be part of your school’s INSET.
