Dramatherapy Southwest Conference 2019

Celebrating 30 years of Dramatherapy Southwest

06th of July, 2019 - Exeter

This year is the 30th anniversary of Dramatherapy Southwest and we thought what better way to mark this than to hold the conference in celebration of this occasion.

The celebration of anything holds within it the joys and successes and also the struggles and challenges that have been met.  How can we pay homage to the past and where we began whilst also welcoming and embracing the future and what is yet to come? 
How do we celebrate ourselves, our skills and passions in our work? Do we resist celebrating ourselves and our work and why might this be?


Please email us on to book a place on the conference and we look forward to seeing you there!


The Dramatherapy Southwest Committee.



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.
