Welcome to Dramatherapy Southwest

Sepping SonesDramatherapy Southwest is a professional network which exists to promote drama as a therapeutic approach. It is a non-profit organization and was first established in 1989.

We are all dramatherapy practitioners who live and work in the region. Some work in the NHS, some in education and others in private practice.

We are all inspired by the art form of drama, the power of its creativity and the enjoyment of self-expression.

Drama makes use of the mind, imagination, voice and body. It makes use of space, form, colour, and image. 

There is a wealth of evidence that dramatherapy can improve mental health and general well-being


                          "Dramatherapy is the application of this art form to psychotherapy"
