Bridget Poulter MA, RDMP
Bridget is a Registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist with the Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP UK), holding an MA from Goldsmiths University. She also has qualifications in Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and is currently working towards registration with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).
Bridget’s experience covers work with both children and adults within various settings: schools and children’s centres, community and residential mental health, dementia and elder care, and a centre supporting individuals with degenerative neurological conditions.
Bridget takes an integrative creative approach to her work using not only dance but also art, drama, play, and verbal therapy to support each child with their own healing and development. Therapy sessions are mainly client-led and offered in a confidential, safe environment. Bridget draws on DMP and her counselling and CBT skills to provide a humanistic, psychodynamic, embodied perspective which includes the use of music and props.
Bridget has worked with children exhibiting emotional, psychological, behavioural and developmental needs arising from family breakdown, neglect, abuse, attachment disorders, removal to care, and other difficulties causing a child difficulty at school, at home or, with peer and family relationships.
Alongside her therapeutic work, Bridget teaches regular dance classes and workshops with a professional percussionist and has performed at many events.
