A dramatherapy session usually runs once a week for an hour. The number of sessions is dependent on the need and availability. If you are interested in starting dramatherapy, we will have an initial meeting followed by three assessment sessions after which we can decide if you would like to continue and would find this approach useful.
Dramatherapy can be short term (3-6 months) or long term (6 months to over a year). 

In a Sesame dramatherapy session the client can do as much or as little as s/he feels comfortable with. There are no demands to perform. Some of the following therapeutic activities may be included in a dramatherapy session:

  • Storytelling and enactment
  • Play and other imaginative activities
  • Expressive movement
  • Art creation
  • Relaxation
  • Listening/moving to music
  • Singing 
  • Improvisation
  • Verbal reflection
