Dramatherapy in Education

The effectiveness of dramatherapy in schools and special education has now been widely recognised and published. Its creative capacity allows opportunities for communication and the expression of emotions and feelings around personal, social or health education issues (PSHCEE).

Working in schools I have a thorough understanding of SEAL and Every Child Matters government campaigns and Dramatherapy supports key elements of both these campaigns. I have experience of working in Mainstream Primary & Secondary Schools, Private Primary & Secondary Schools, Special Schools, Colleges, Nurseries & Preschools.

I mostly commonly work with children and young people who have:

  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD)
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Social and Communication Difficulties
  • Physical and Sensory Disabilities
  • Attachment related Difficulties

As well as children and adolescents who are dealing with:
  • Lack of self-esteem or confidence
  • Peer related difficulties
  • Foster care and adoption transition
  • Change or loss, e.g. divorce, bereavement, or moving home
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Issues around sexuality
