What is DMP?
Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) recognises body movement as a form of communication and expression; movement, dance and rhythm are some of the most accessible ways in which we find connection with others. DMP sessions provide the opportunity to explore forms of self-expression in a safe and supportive therapeutic environment.
Who is DMP for?
DMP is for anyone seeking therapy and the opportunity to work through troubling feelings and experiences. It may be particularly helpful for those who enjoy movement, dance or drama, or for those who find talking difficult. It is suitable for people of all levels of mobility and no previous dance experience is necessary.
Clinical trials have shown that arts therapies such as DMP have a positive effect on those living with depression, schizophrenia and medically unexplained symptoms.
