Shalom Lee-RamsbottomDrama therapy therapist
Hi I'm Shalom,
I am a Creative Arts Therapist/Talk therapist. I have been working alongside adults, Children and young people via group work and one to one basis over the past 15 years. My practice is based in Poole-Branksome Park-Dorset.
If you find yourself feeling stressed or overwhelmed particularly during this time about what you "Should" be doing right now, remind yourself that there is no one right way to get through this time. Take the pandemic pressure off. It is okay to allow yourself time to muddle through and manage as best you can, whatever that looks like. We don’t have to emerge at the end of the pandemic as a perfect version of ourselves, But we do have to ensure we come through this time looking after ourselves the best we can and feeling as safe and as good as we possibly can, so that we can get to the other side as mentally healthy as possible.
My role is to hear your voice, give you the space and time to work through and share your feelings with compassion, understanding and containment.
Through our work together I will support you to gain the skills & tools to manage any stress or anxiety that you may be dealing with during this uncertain and challenging season, resulting in you feeling emotionally stronger and more balanced day to day.
If you are new to therapy "Well Done" for having the strength to focus on caring about your mental health and taking the first step towards might appear be a difficult step for you, because of possible feelings of stigma around mental health, being seen as weak or unable to cope, feeling that there is something wrong with you or just not knowing what to expect. I aim to eliminate your concerns. I believe attending therapy is all about your well-being, self- exploration and self-care as well as learning new strategies and coping mechanisms to manage painful and complex issues in your life.
The service I offer is successful primarily because of the strong therapeutic relationship I build with my clients, which is the cornerstone of Creative Arts Therapy. Therefore, your problem/diagnosis is not my focus instead you as an individual are at the centre of our work together. I see each person as a unique person and I work with you in a holistic way. I am passionate about empowering people by facilitating clients to work through issues and improve their lives & wellbeing.
Talk therapy is a vital part of the therapy within our sessions however, as a Creative Arts therapist I also offer other ways of supporting you through therapy. The therapy is always client led and conducted in a welcoming, safe and secure, and relaxed environment.
