DR LISA PEACOCK
Hi, I’m Lisa and I have experience working as a dramatherapist in England, Scotland and the Midwest in the United States. In the US, I worked for the eighth largest children’s hospital. I worked with children and teens who survived a recent trauma such as a suicide attempt, sexual or physical abuse or bullying. In this hospital context, I learned the power of story to heal and the importance of a co-produced approach to foster the development of a therapeutic relationship. My dramatherapy training included working with dance/movement, art and music therapists in addition to fellow dramatherapists. I often work multi-modally so individuals feel supported in communicating meaning in their most resonant form of self-expression.
I also work with adults facing mental health challenges in the community. I have worked with veterans of the Forces for a number of years. I have learned nuanced ways of working with those who have concerns about engaging in therapy.
I received my Doctorate in Dramatherapy from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. I am an Arts Therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council and a member of the British Association of Dramatherapists and the North American Drama Therapy Association.
I like to be out in nature and walk 5 miles on most days. I enjoy traveling by train or motorbike to experience the beauty of this great country. I enjoy writing plays and short stories.
