Jack came to Dramatherapy through a long-lasting passion for the creative arts especially the theatre and performance. He learnt the transformational power of performance and self-expression through performance poetry in his teens. Jack’s journey began working in SEN schools supporting children with complex needs and developmental trauma. Through this work Jack learnt the transformational power of play and how it can be used to support the formation of healthy attachments.
Jack uses creativity in many different ways. These include story making, drawing, sculpting, small world toys and improvised play. This makes Jack’s approach particularly suited to younger children, adolescents or those who struggle to communicate verbally. Jack likes to work holistically, using the body as well as the mind in the therapeutic work. This allows Jack to work with the embodied experience of emotion or traumatic experience to bring about a deeper sense of healing.
