Dance-Movement Therapy Private therapy sessions in Dance-Movement (Psycho)Therapy for adults and children from 9 years. Connecting body, mind and wellbeing using a somatic, conceptual and creative approach to movement. A client-centred approach using Dance-Movement Therapy, to facilitate giving physical shape and form to human thoughts, emotions and life experience. Dance-Movement Therapy (DMT) is a multifaceted modality for healing, empowerment and joy across physical, cultural, emotional, social, cognitive, and integrated domains. This includes addressing the emotional and physical impacts of trauma. DMT experiences are introduced for guiding body-based self-discovery and transformative creative expression. The primary goal is to build new psychophysical capacities through expanding expressive freedom, strengthening self-esteem and developing new emotional resources. This approach is sensitive to cultural context for healing and expressivity in the global community. The DMT approach prioritises emotional safety. Dance-Movement Therapy is a broadly effective approach for healing and wellbeing, that is underpinned by: neuroscience; scientific evidence; ongoing research; creative arts; and holistic frameworks, methodologies and techniques. Clients are invited to a held, safe, welcoming and positive movement space that offers support for individuals. No movement experience necessary, just a curiosity to explore and move. Clients with and without diagnosed mental and/or physical health conditions are invited to a collaborative therapeutic alliance.
