Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) explores the body and body movement as an implicit and explicit tool of communication.
With a mix of spontaneous movement, play, art, music, and verbalisation, DMP helps integrate the emotional and psychological response to current or past experiences.
With attachment theory at its core, DMP embraces neuroscience-based elements of attunement and mirroring to provide clients with a secure space to experience a safe and supportive relationship – which may not have occurred in early life.
DMP also draws on mindfulness, embodiment, and trauma-informed practice to address issues including self-worth, anxiety, trauma, confidence, and self-regulation – or where words are not enough.
DMP helps clients understand their inner world in an indirect, unthreatening way which supports positive change, growth and healing.
