GyiDance - Dance Movement Psychotherapy

Dance has always brought joy and been an integral part of human societies - a way for individuals and groups to express themselves. It’s ability to bring health benefits to body and mind inspired dance artist Hannah Creighton to qualify as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist (DMP) in 2009.

‘Your body stores memories and dance and movement helps release these held emotions. Unlike traditional psychotherapy, where individuals are expected to talk, it’s a gentler and more positive way of expressing oneself and accesses places that words can't reach.

DMP, either with groups or individuals, has enormous benefits for those who need a way to channel negative energy. If you’re not feeling physically or emotionally well or experiencing stress, it can help. More specific issues include Dementia, Loss, Anxiety, Depression and Autism.

‘It’s a creative process – we use dance, music, colour and props like hoops and balls and even stillness, finding the method that best suits the individual. We work on building trust so that the relationship can be explored.’

Based in Box, Hannah has also recently qualified as a Creative Clinical Supervisor. This means she can help fellow practitioners improve their offers while continuing to assist people and their wellbeing through dance.


My Wiltshire

I was welcomed to Wiltshire at the tender age of 5, departing for University studies and a little soul searching, but always returning. Now preparing for a family of my own, I am in awe of the beauty that surrounds me on a daily basis. The opportunities to walk with nature and admire the morning mist lifting from the hills from my kitchen window is such a gift. The nearby towns provide a feast of creative talent from fine food and wine, to homemade wares, dress and music, enabling the local community to thrive and lightly nod to how we used to survive, living and supporting one another.
