Psychodrama therapy

At its core, psychodrama uses action to get to core issues. Instead of sitting in a chair and talking, you learn by doing and participating. In Psychodrama therapy, we use guided drama and wordplay to get to core issues and work through problems in an active way.

Who is psychodrama for?

Psychodrama is widely versatile and can be used for individual, group, family or couples therapy.

Some people use psychodrama therapy as an avenue for personal growth. It is also effective for the treatment of mental health disorders. Anyone who is open to experiencing the magic and spontaneity of action methods in a therapeutic session will benefit from psychodrama therapy.

Psychodrama for personal growth

Psychodrama can be used for personal growth. It can offer a gateway for the creative exploration of your self, your relationships and your life. Used in this way, psychodrama can lead to personal liberation from issues that have been holding you back. It can assist in creative self-expression.

Psychodrama can bring about the development of greater empathy and the emergence of “new ways of being” that comes from acting out alternative roles. Playing roles in a supportive environment enables clients to gain new perspectives and insights. This is especially useful for exploring conflicts in relationships.

Psychodrama for mental health disorders

Psychodrama has been shown to be effective in the treatment of serious mental health disorders such as phobias, emotional disorders, eating disorders, self-harm, substance use, and depression, (even depression resistant to medication). In a recent study, psychodrama was found to be as effective in the treatment of depression as Cognitive Behavior therapy. The study also demonstrated that the two modes of therapy integrate well together.
