Who is Drama Therapy for?

Drama therapy is not just for people who consider themselves to be creative or dramatic (although they are very welcome!). Drama therapy can be useful for a range of people from very young to very old, and it can be beneficial for many different problems.

Due to the online nature of this drama therapy practice, it is important to note that I can’t provide emergency care. If you are feeling suicidal, or if you believe you may harm yourself, please phone in to your local emergency room and ask for the psychologist on call. If you do not know who to call, please get in touch so that I can help you find the appropriate help.

Online drama therapy may be helpful for:

  • addiction
  • family issues
  • relationship issues
  • dealing with trauma
  • dealing with long-term illness
  • at-risk youth
  • body-image issues
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • culture shock
  • exam or job stress
  • LGBTIAQ+ issues
  • expat issues

Online therapy is also a good option if you don’t have access to therapy in your area, or you don’t have the time or transport to get to in-person therapy. It is also helpful if you struggle with social anxiety, or if you are battling to get out of the house for any reason.

The drama therapy sessions are focused on you, and you are in charge of what issues we deal with. You are completely free to be yourself, (swearing and ranting is more than allowed) and the idea is that the therapy space is somewhere you are free from judgments, and free to express even the most difficult emotions.

I won’t be fixing your problems, or telling you what to do. My job is to enter into the fray with you, and help you to recognise patterns, roles, and behaviours that aren’t benefiting you anymore. If you want to know more about how drama therapy works, check out this blog post, or have a look at this information packet from the North American Drama Therapy Association.
