(Preferably full attendances are desired so that the outcome of therapy will maximise.)


The group, RISE (Resilience, Independence, Self-Care and Empowerment) offers you an opportunity to move and dance in a supportive therapeutic environment.


What do we do in the group?

The RISE group will focus on developing self-care skills and finding inner strength. I guide you through with a slow start of grounding yourself and your body. We will together explore, embody and share movements. We will develop a sequence of movements that calm yourself and resonate with resilience within you.


How long and big is the group?

It runs weekly, every Thursday morning, for an hour for six weeks. It is a closed group, which means we will always have the same women. The group size is minimum 2 and maximum 6.


Who is this RISE group for?

This group is suitable for women of all age (+18) who would like to improve her wellbeing or may be suffering from anxiety, depression, and any other issues. If you just like to experience dance movement therapy as an alternative therapy, this is the one for you.
