Susan Lawrence


I’m Susan, a 56 year old qualified Dramatherapist (HCPC registered), Trainer and Group/ Reflective Practice Facilitator. I'm based in Totnes and work throughout the South West.

I work with a range of people, individually and in groups – indoors and outside.

I’m experienced in working with children, young people and adults in a range of settings and with a variety of needs and hopes. These include:

People with substance use dependency (in rehabilitation and community based settings)
Children, Young People and their families (in school (1:1) & the community (in groups))
Adults and Young People with a range of Mental Health Challenges and/or Learning needs (
in residential & community settings)

I provide reflective practice and trauma informed training group processes for a variety of practitioners working in a range of support services and community groups.

I love being outside, walking and connecting with nature. I offer Walks for Well-being, Reflective Practice and Therapy (length and type of walk to suit each person / group).

My ongoing development includes training in:

Creative Supervision  (currently on a one year accredited course with Relight)

Didactic Developmental Psychotherapy (levels 1 & 2)

Certificated Playback Theatre Training

Walking for Health Leadership Training

I’m a Playback Theatre Performer– taking Playback Theatre into communities to share and honour peoples’ stories (Rise & Fall Playback Theatre Co.).

I offer a sliding fee scale, according to someone's ability to pay.
