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

Featured Dramatherapist: Susan Lawrence

I'm a qualified HCPC registered Dramatherapist, based in Bristol. I love working with a range of clients, individually and in groups. I am experienced in working with:

Substance users (in various stages of change) in rehabilitation and community based settings
Children, Young People and their families (including LGBT work)
Adults with Learning Difficulties in residential and community based settings
Practitioners working in a range of services such as Domestic Violence and Mental Health
People labelled 'hard to reach'

I'm an experienced Group Facilitator, Trainer and Community Development Worker. I develop tailor made training and group work experiences, which focus on developing Self-esteem, Confidence and Communication Skills.

I've been the Chair of Dramatherapy South West for the past two years, taking pride in creating and managing a range of Continuing Professional Development experiences and workshops for drama and other creative arts therapists.

I offer a sliding fee scale.
