We met in 2003, whilst training on the Drama and Movement Therapy MA at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (RCSSD) in London. As students, we first worked together on placement on a Forensic psychiatric ward and then in a special school for pupils with ASD. After qualifying and registering with the HCPC as Arts Therapists (Drama), we were both employed to run joint dramatherapy sessions in schools, for Roundabout Dramatherapy; the largest Dramatherapy Charity in the UK.
Our passion to therapeutically hold a safe and creative space to support all children and young people to thrive, has been present in our practice from the very beginning. As our experience has grown, so has our interest and curiosity in systemic practice; understanding the importance of supporting the staff and families that surround and influence the child or young person. Hidden Treasures brings these interests together.
Please be assured that our regulation by the HCPC - an independent, UK-wide health regulator - means that we adhere to their standards of proficiency in our training, professional skills, behaviour and health. As full members of the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth), we follow their code of ethics in all areas of our work, including client care and professional practice. We are also members and currently co-chairs of the Creative Arts Supervision Training (CAST) Forum, where we organise CPD training events for qualified supervisors.
