Experience

DSC_0603 copySarah specializes in Dramatherapy, a form of psychotherapy that uses a variety of creative mediums to assist individuals on their journey of wellbeing. Sarah holds a bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Community Theatre from Concordia University in Canada, and a master’s degree in Dramatherapy from the University of Derby in the UK. Sarah also holds a license from the Health and Care Professions Care Council.

As a Dramatherapist, Sarah has been working with a varied population of both individuals and families. She focuses on the specific needs of each client based on their personalities, interpersonal relationships and cultural differences. The needs have varied widely, including psycho-socio-emotional and behavioral difficulties, loss, transition, trauma, self-esteem, learning disabilities, family, parenting, and communication issues. She has also offered consultation, supervision, and training to professionals and parents, assisting their development and reflective practice. In her previous work as an Arts in Health facilitator, she delivered therapeutic art workshops to inpatients and outpatients suffering from mild to severe mental health issues and helped to develop community arts projects focused on self-esteem, reducing isolation and cultivating inter-generational dialogue.

At ELG, Sarah is a Dramatherapist working with children, young people, adults, and families. She is also a consultant, trainer, and supervisor for parents and professionals. She works integratively, using verbal and non-verbal methods, as she believes it is important to adapt the approach to meet the needs of each individual.

Sarah feels most grateful for accompanying individuals on their journey of healing and growth. She also embraces multiculturalism, believing that great wisdom can be learned from differences and cultural exchanges. She celebrates that ELG welcomes and cultivates this.
