Dance movement psychotherapy
is about finding out who you are,
what you actually need to thrive and be fully alive.

Watch this short film about dance movement therapy
Dance movement psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy where we use movement and dance to make sense of and express feelings and thoughts. It is a space to re-member your connection with your body, find out what you need to heal and thrive, to express yourself fully and to explore creative solutions.
Why choose DMT?
Do I need to be able to dance to do DMT?
- Youíve tried talking therapy before and would like to try a new approach
- You are creative and like to express yourself through the arts i.e. music, art, dance or drama
- You think about things constantly and want to get out of your head (and into your body)
- You're looking for a supportive and caring relationship in which you can explore any issue at your own pace
You donít need any particular dance or movement experience to do DMT. Neither do you have to be able-bodied or physically fit. DMT works very well with people of all ages and abilities because it is about the way it feels to move a particular way.
What sort of music and dancing is involved?
We don't use a particular style such as ballet or hip hop in DMT, rather we use whatever movement style you are most comfortable with, for example, it might depend on what music you like or your previous movement experience.
Do I dance the whole time in a session or can I talk aswell?
Some people like to move and dance a lot in a session and some prefer to talk a lot and move a little. The way a session takes shape is basically up to you.
How long does a session last?
Individual sessions usually last 1 hour to 90 minutes and group sessions last 60 to 90 minutes.
I offer in-person and hybrid (a mix of both in-person and online) sessions between 7am and 10am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
I offer therapy outdoors, online and in my practice, on the main street in Greystones Health and Wellbeing Centre, Co.Wicklow,
https://greystoneshealthandwellbeingcentre.com. If you would like to have online sessions, it's very helpful to have at least one in-person session.
