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 dramatherapysw@gmail.com to book a place on the conference and we look forward to seeing you there!

Featured Dramatherapist: Tracey Wills

Are you, or someone you care for, struggling to cope or to make sense of what life brings? Do you feel stuck or limited in options for the way forward?

The world, and hence life, is, by nature, challenging - there is constant flux and change, bringing us 'ups and downs' some of which are expected but many are not. And we can struggle.

What can be done?

We cannot change our past or the people around us, but we can alter our own relationship to ourselves and how we view our lives, our relationships and our circumstances. This ultimately releases us from the debilitating grips of low self-esteem, grief, anxity, depression or anger - making us more tolerant of change and able to find increased contentment as we move forward on life's path.
I offer a variety of playful and creative ways with which to explore such personal issues. No previous experience of drama, music or art is necessary - just a willingness and curiosity to explore through creative means. I work in a client-centred way which means the pace and content of the sessions are determined by you, the client.

I am HCPC registered, based in Exeter and Mid Devon, offering individual or group dramatherapy. I have considerable experience of using dramatherapy in schools, residential and day-care settings with older people, people with dementia, and adults/children with learning disabilities. I have also worked with looked-after and adopted children.

Besides dramatherapy, I also offer drama facilitation for groups wishing to explore and develop drama and theatre skills; and I offer training or team-building workshops for organisations interested in a playful, drama based approach.
