Danieyella is an HPCSA-registered drama therapy intern, who has just completed her Masters in Drama Therapy at the University of the Witwatersrand. She was drawn to drama therapy work because of the role that somatic and artistic practises have played in her own healing journey, and she believes that finding creative expression in the therapy space can allow for deeper and holistic growth. Before training as a therapist, she worked in theatre, film, music, facilitation and arts project management. Danieyella brings a poetic, but practical, sensibility to all her work.
She is curious about people’s development across the lifespan and the role creative practice can play in bringing fuller awareness to an ever-emergent self, navigating the challenges which arise at different life stages. She has an interest in working with couples and families,
as well as people experiencing periods of transition (such as early and late adolescence, early parenthood, during separation or divorce and even after retrenchment or during a career pivot). Finally, Danieyella is also fascinated by the multifaceted journey of managing chronic conditions, such as Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), as well as the impact that diagnosis at different stages of life may have on an individual’s self-concept.
Elayne is an HPCSA registered Drama Therapy Intern, and an Arts Therapy Masters graduate. She has been involved in psychotherapeutic workshops since 2021.
She has a specific interest in the relationship between the body and mental health and a passion for bringing mindfulness into the workplace.
One of her favourite quotes is by Pablo Picasso: “The chief enemy of creativity is good sense.”
