CV

  • Emma trained at Roehampton University, where she was awarded a Master’s degree in Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP), and is registered with The Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP UK).
  • Emma’s therapeutic approach brings together dance, movement, play, art and the sand tray to support individuals to find their own ways of making sense of their feelings, supporting them in finding new and healthier ways to express these, as well as to reconnect with themselves and others.
  • Emma has facilitated Dance Movement Psychotherapy and well-being sessions within the NHS, forensic services, in the community and education sector. Emma has experience of working within Mental Health and supporting those with Learning and Physical Disabilities, seeing much of her work supporting those with a dual diagnosis across the two. Emma leads 1-1 and group sessions, working with children, adolescence, adults and older adults.
  • Therapy sessions are always offered in a safe, non-judgemental space, seeing sessions created to suit the needs of the client.
  • In addition to her training to become a DMP, Emma undertook a course in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Management, as well as completing a Somatic Body Mapping mentorship under the training of Annette Schwalbe. Somatic Body Mapping is a therapeutic and body-focused creative process, which gives individuals space to explore and give creative voice to the stories held within their own bodies.
  • Emma’s current dance work sees her bringing together her love for dance and expression and her work as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist, to share with audiences the lived experiences held by individuals where mental health and social based issues have had an impact on their lives. This has seen Emma recently perform in Amsterdam and across the UK.
