This summer programme is a gift to the wider community from St Mary’s church to contribute to wellbeing as we move out of lockdown. There is no charge. In the family sessions any parents who want to stay with their children and be part of the drama activities they are very welcome, just let me know.

I hope that those who sign up will be able to come to most of the sessions but I know that life happens, do have a chat with me if this is a concern for you.

Please pass this information on to anyone who might be interested.

If you would like to book a place/places please email me or have a word.

What is Drama for Wellbeing?

Come and play, make stories, characters and improvise to connect with your community.

Drama for Wellbeing uses creative techniques, such as stories, characters, play, and improvisation as a way to connect with likeminded people. It’s a safe and welcoming place where you can break free from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and maybe even learn something new about yourself!

Freya Briley and Helena Burton- Jones met on the MA Dramatherapy course at the University of Roehampton in 2019. They are about to finish their final year in June 2021 and plan to bring Dramatherapy to Kent and London. This summer they are offering Drama for Wellbeing sessions through the Places of Welcome and Wellbeing Cafes. Between them they have a wealth of experience working with a variety of clients including older adults, children and young people, offenders, refugees and much more. They are excited to bring their passion for drama and wellbeing to places near you this summer!
