Dance Voice is a Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) charity working with some of the most marginalised members of the community. Based in Bristol, Dance Voice is one of the UK’s leading centres dedicated to community-based creative arts therapy. It is also an established professional education centre in dance movement psychotherapy.DMP is one of the creative arts-based therapies, founded on the principle that movement reflects a person’s pattern of thinking and feeling. The process uses movement and dance to facilitate emotional, physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Moreover, Dance Movement Psychotherapy is a recognised profession, regulated by a national body: the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK (ADMPUK). DMP is suited to all ages and abilities, its non-verbal creative approach allows for individual expression to emerge and for all voices to be heard. We pride ourselves on the ability to engage people whatever their story, however they communicate, to be alongside them listening and responding to their self-expression, allowing space for connection, reflection, growth and personal understanding.Dance Voice has a skilled and experienced team of DMP’s who facilitate DMP sessions on and off sight, in groups and 1:1 and provide clinical supervision.
