. . . believing in yourself, making good choices and taking the right actions

Personal and professional development 2-day workshop run over two Thursdays (non-residential).  No previous experience of psychodrama required.


We have a vision to build your capacity and live life with more creativity and imagination.

Psychodrama is an action method that powerfully explores and clarifies aspects of life that matter to you.  You will experience the trust, playfulness, depth and spontaneity of working in a group with skilled leadership.  You will have the opportunity to be involved in your own enactment as well as to take up roles as an auxiliary in other people’s drama.

Let’s work together to make our lives vital and meaningful.

Who can attend?

This workshop is designed for anyone who aspires to enrich their spirit, enhance self-worth and develop their functioning in personal and professional life.

For those people considering training in psychodrama, this is an ideal introductory experience.

No previous experience of psychodrama is required to attend this workshop, however, if you are unsure about whether this workshop is a good match for you, please contact Claire Guy to discuss.  See our enrolment policy.


The psychodrama method is one that calls for expression of our self through both mind and body.  It can be the means to awaken abilities and energies, to bring into our consciousness a greater sense of who we are and of the unique purpose which each of us has in being on this planet, and to assist us to make a working whole.  It invites us to leave the conserved and stultified patterns by which we have imprisoned ourselves, and to enter once more into a free situation.  We are invited to create through drama the situations that we have always dreamed of, and, through the release of spontaneity in role play, to develop abilities that have a practical application in life itself.                                            AANZPA Training and Standards Manual

Claire Guy

Claire is a Nelson-based Psychodramatist, TEP and registered psychotherapist. She is known for her spontaneity and authenticity. She has learned through 30 years of experience that laughter and a playful spirit assists the digestion of painful memories and almost unbearable circumstances. She supervises many parents, family workers, counsellors and other practitioners who work with children. One client said to her recently, "Coming to see you is like going to a good movie. First of all, I tell you what is going on; then by some miraculous means we have a laugh together; then I have a good cry. I leave feeling much lighter and happier with myself".
