Psychodrama –from a soulful perspective is an exciting and powerful method that extrapolates and significantly expands the work of Dr. Jacob Moreno (1989-1974).
Psychodrama is an action method that develops spontaneity through role-playing in a dramatic self-presentation to explore, gain insight and healing in ones life. By closely recreating real-life situations, and acting them out in the present, clients have the opportunity to more deeply understand a particular situation in their lives. By inviting in a wisdom figure options are presented to live more creatively.
In soul-centered psychodrama there is the belief that the group has the power to heal. Being in the moment and working with ‘what is’, brings about change, development, connection and our spontaneous self. In trusting this process, we can expect that things will turn out well. The psychodrama method brings about optimism in people in their relationships with others, in small and large groups, and in their daily work and life.
During the three days of experiential learning you will develop tools and skills to:
- access the playful self – develop spontaneity
- increase self love and strengthen acceptance
- connect to self and others
- become aware of and be connected to your body in the healing process
- resolve inner conflict
- incorporate creative ways of dealing with transference, projection, shadow and inner critic
You have been gifted a full and vital life – embrace it.

"Psychodrama was not what I expected at all. The power in having my own words and actions reflected back to me in this way was profound. It has added a whole new dimension to my art therapy toolbox." - Christine Phillips
"It takes role playing to whole new level and I experienced the benefits of working through my own issues and well as being able to hold others gently to do the same. I would recommend this program/course to anyone who is action orientated and is interested in delving into transpersonal work with an entirely new and dynamic approach." - Suzana Katic
"Psychodrama was fantastic, a wee bit scary and a lot of fun. I had no drama experience & a 'fear of exposure' that soon went out the window!Once warmed to the process I really enjoyed the experiential aspect & felt like I was learning from the inside out! I found Psychodrama rewarding in terms of personal insights. It was a joy to watch others have similar experience & I look forward to using Psychodrama with clients! It should be required learning!" - Mary Thompson
