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

Full-Day Conference 27 January 2018 in Bristol

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


Featured Dramatherapist: Craig Barrett

I trained on the MA Dramatherapy Course in Exeter and then spent several years as a Dramatherapist at Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in West Dorset within the Looked After Children's team. In addition I have worked with The  Child and Family Counselling Trust with Dorset families since 2008. More recently I have worked at an independent fostering agency as part of the therapy team looking after the needs of foster children and their carers in Cornwall and Plymouth and have been a core staff member for the SouthWest School of Dramatherapy - the Exeter based MA in Dramatherapy training.Currently a therapist for a specialist Children's Residential Provider. I very much enjoy delivering trainings and reflective group supervision.
