Pride Therapy Sunday

Publish Date: 22/08/2012

 

For one day only on Sunday 26th August The Lesbian & Gay Foundation will be opening its doors to offer you the opportunity to work with a traditional talking therapist or to join a small Dramatherapy group.

Dramatherapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses play, storytelling, improvisation, music, art and movement.Dramatherapy seeks to provide clients with the opportunity to explore different solutions to difficult life experiences and can support clients in considering and making change. You do not need any previous experience to take part. The aim isn't to perform but to work with the therapeutic aspects of drama at your own pace and with your own potential.

The Dramatherapy group will explore the theme: What is your sense of Pride? The groups will use play, storytelling, improvisation, music, art and movement and willbe limited to about 6 people so places will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Traditional counsellingwill be available from 11am to 2pm (last appointment 1.30pm) with each counsellor offering 25 minute sessions. You can experience counselling for the first time or talk with your counsellor about something that is troubling you. Appointments on a first come first served basis.  

All therapies are FREE and open to people from the age of 18 upwards (sorry no couples).

To take part in any of the above therapies come to The Lesbian & Gay Foundation’s Community Resource Centre, Number 5 Richmond Street, M1 3HF in the heart of the gay village.
