Drama therpay with John Bowtell and Meghan was absoloutely brilliant, and really helped me so so much, and it was so so sad it was ended, and i would love to do it again sometime, or would love to do a drama therapy course, and would love to set up my own drama therapy group in life, it was amazing, and a life saver for me, so so sad it was taken away.
they are friendly and supportive when you need them and you are allowed to express youself
I have know John Bowtell for the last six years through our work with DvT dramatherapy UK. During this time I continue to be impressed by his professional development, his commitment to creative arts therapy and theatre practice, and the constant pushing of boundaries and explorations of intervention and participation. John is a driven, professional and highly motivated individual who has clear goals and focus. I believe that John's enthusiasm and capability combined with his absolute passion allows him to succeed at any endeavour he applies himself too. I greatly look forward to working with John more in the future and encourage others to support the work he creates. More...
