The healing power of drama

Dramatherapy at Cambridgeshire Music started in 2018 and has quickly become an essential part of our service. Our drama therapists currently work in SEN and mainstream schools across Cambridgeshire.

Dramatherapy sessions are person-centred and focus on communication through dramatic techniques such as role play, story-telling and embodiment. It is particularly helpful for those with some verbal and physical ability who have emotional or behavioural difficulties, trauma, anxiety, or additional mental health needs. It is suitable for individuals or groups – of all ages and abilities.
