Psychodrama: One-to-one Sessions

What can you expect from a one-to-one psychodrama session?

I was raised in the messy, thirsty, inspirational chaos of London fringe theatre and so an unquenchable thirst for storytelling, playing and production was born. Pioneered by Romanian psychiatrist, sociologist and educator Jacob Levy Moreno, the psychodrama method invites these elements into the therapy space using role work, the stage, props and setting, and other performance-inspired techniques. The psychodrama psychotherapist gently invites you to transform these techniques into tools for developing insight into your personal challenges and enabling new, empowered responses to them beyond the clinic.

We will spend our first, 50-minute session getting to know one-another and understanding a little of what brings you to therapy. Many women arrive with specific curiosities around what feels like “blocked” creativity, overwhelming emotional stress, or body symptoms that seem medically unfathomable. Or you may simply need a space to be heard in a safe and welcoming space. I offer both short-term courses of individual therapy (8-12 weeks) and longer-term, open-ended interventions. We will explore together what best suits your needs if you are unsure. From then on, you can expect us to work with what is present for you at each weekly session using both talking and, where appropriate, action. While psychodrama incorporates specific techniques to bring the inner world to life, I will also tailor our work according to your unique creative voice. I have previously worked with clients using collage, hairdressing, mask-making and cookery to deepen insight and bring about change beyond the clinic.

Sessions are low-cost at £65 to reflect my trainee status. There is also limited availability for fortnightly sessions (Sundays only) at £75.

Blue Monday? Is this really a thing or just a holiday company marketing ploy (apparently this is how it became part of our cultural conversation).

Does this 'day' open up the conversation about mental health or trivialise the very real challenge many face with their mental health?

I'm not sure what the answer is...

This photo was taken 3 years ago, Luna not quite 3 months old. 

Her birth had compelled me into action. Her entry into the world had been powerful & exhilarating. Yet when talking about it, I felt guilt, as if I were being smug, my experience seemed so far from the norm... 

This is when my anger started... 

Why were so many women & birthing people's birth stories full of pain, fear, trauma, a blow to self-confidence rather than inspiring & fuelling it? 

Like all female mammals we're designed to birth. So why is it that 2020-21 NHS data shows that only 47% of births in England resulted from aΒ

Why were so many women & birthing people's birth stories full of pain, fear, trauma, a blow to self-confidence rather than inspiring & fuelling it? Like all female mammals we're designed to birth. So why is it that 2020-21 NHS data shows that only 47% of births in England resulted from aΒ  "spontaneous method of onset". Meaning that 53% were a result of induction or caesarean or that the data wasn't available (see graph). Why are more & more women seeking support to tackle birth trauma & birth related PTSD? THIS ISN'T RIGHT! Yet, as a society we seem to accept it... THIS IS WRONG! I make no apology for shouting this. It needs to be heard, but isn't, despite thousands of birthworkers shouting about it a lot louder & for a lot longer than me. So does the change have to come from us, the people giving birth? This doesn't seem fair... although I can't see how else maternity care will step away from the worrying path of medicalisation it's currently on. Unfortunately the birth language I find myself using is that of war: 'arming yourself with info' & 'fighting for your rights'. How has it come to this, midwives & obstetricians aren't our enemy, they're our allies! You could write a PhD on how we've reached this point, but the outcome is the same, we, as birthing women, must act. We must have the confidence to trust our intuition, the knowledge to talk to the medical professional about what we want & why. Information is key. So 3 years ago I made this my aim, to try my best to help women & birthing people access the info & support they might need. Little did I know that 3 years later this would lead me to Moon. Moon opens this ethos up beyond maternity; supporting women in all aspects of their journey through life, puberty, periods, menopause & beyond. I feel amazed & grateful. #womenshealth #womensupportingwomen #informationiskey1 day ago
