A 6 Week Dramatherapy Course with Nichi Green
Monday 10th October-14th November 2022
This creative and experiential course will explore movement, play, embodiment, therapeutic theatre, mask work and storytelling. Each week will focus on a different theme using Dramatherapy techniques to help us connect to ourselves and each other. Witnessing, support and feedback will be an integral and weekly part of the course.
It has long been understood that we interpret the world through a metaphorical lens. Dramatherapy actively encourages the use of metaphor in the therapeutic space to help us understand and make meaning of our day to day lives and relationships. Dramatherapy draws upon the world of the imagination to facilitate psychological change and mental well being. You do not have to have any drama or theatre training to benefit from this therapeutic approach. It is for anyone that wishes to use creative and illuminating techniques to explore themselves and their relationships.
Each week will incorporate movement and breathing exercises. Our first connection will usually be with our body- observing and moving. We will always finish with a relaxation exercise and group sharing.
This course is useful for professionals working within mental health, education, the arts and any individual wishing to gain confidence in a creative setting.
Nichi has over 36 years experience of working with drama, the arts and the body and trained as a Dramatherapist after completing her Theatre Arts degree. She discovered through theatre and movement a confidence in her teenage years which helped and motivated her throughout her adult life. Discovering yoga whilst working as a therapist connected all of the dots and she went on to set up Yorkshire’s first yoga studio in 2004.
20 years of teaching yoga now informs her therapy work and she will often bring relaxation techniques, breathwork and body scanning into her Dramatherapy sessions. You can find out more about her work here
