Featured Dramatherapist: Mary Booker

Are you facing changes in your life?  Do you have difficulty moving beyond past feelings or situations?  Would you like to take a fresh look at yourself and your life?  I offer gentle, creative and effective therapy for individual women clients which respects women's natural rhythms and processes.  I have been a practising dramatherapist since 1988 and am a lecturer on the Southwest School of Dramatherapy's MA in Dramatherapy (University of Worcester) based in Exeter.  I also offer process supervision for arts and play therapists.  Creative workshops and training workshops can be available on request. I worked for 11 years in special education with people who have severe or profound complex needs.  You can read about this work in my book, Developmental Drama. See Downloads and Links below.  I am happy to answer questions from other practitioners about this work. Recently, I completed a three year project on Working Creatively with Fear.  My book, Nothing Special, is one of the results of this project See Links below.
