Drama and Play Therapy

Seeing, hearing, exploring... growing



About me

I'm passionate about what I do

Welcome to my website - I am Welma de Beer; a qualified Drama therapist (MADT Wits), a registered member of the Healthcare Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF).

I have over thirty years of experience working with children, young people and adults, both in my current position as a Drama therapist and also as a drama practitioner, facilitator, teacher, lecturer and teacher trainer.

Drama Therapy

What is it - and who it's for

Drama and play therapy brings creative processes into the room when specifically working with our emotions, expressing our life stories and facing our fears.

Drama therapy is particularly effective with children but is similarly enjoyed when engaged with by adults. It can be practised in groups or with individuals either in institutions or in private practise.

Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul
