Workshop details

Individuals with eating disorders often numb their emotions in an attempt to control overwhelming life experiences. Transforming this disordered detour into connectedness to self and life, is integral to movement toward recovery. Attendees will learn to facilitate engagement with the client’s authentic self by working with them expressively, empowering them to understand their resistance and translating the ensuing experiences into metaphorical insights. Principles of rhythmic synchrony, kinesthetic awareness and kinesthetic empathy, implemented through clinicians’ own clinical intuition and ability to attune, will allow for the transformation of ordinary experiences into extraordinary therapeutic skills. Teaching methods will focus on folding these new concepts into clinicians’ existing skill set to maximize positive change.

This workshop is for anyone interested in exploring themselves through movement. If you are interested in the DMT training program it is a good idea to come along and make contact with us.

The workshop is self-experiential; we offer a space for reflections and support your experience, although it is not a therapy or supervision space.

NEW SERIES of Dance Movement Therapy Workshops coming this autumn.

“Home; In Me, Around Me?”


Looking at where our ideas of ‘home’ live in our bodies. And what happens when our idea of ‘home’ is moved, changed and needs developing. Using Dance Movement Psychotherapy to explore through self experience how we feel about the concept of ‘home’, is it purely and external aspect to our lives that we leave and return to everyday, or do we take it with us in our bodes?

This is for anyone interested in this theme but has been inspired by the many people I have met who, like myself, are living in country different to where their where born, or raised.

Please post your interest or questions i’d be happy to make contact with you. Details of the workshop to follow

  1. I believe it’s in our hearts, and then reunited by a feeling a memory a touch in the environment that we might be in and the people around us? Would be interested to explore more and question the theory 😀 very thought provoking.
