Caswell Clinic

Daffodils in a field

We have also begun our drama project at Caswell Clinic, a secure psychiatric hospital in Bridgend. We have had two excellent introductory sessions and will be working with a group of 10 patients and staff over the next 10 weeks.

We are using a combination of image theatre and storytelling techniques to work creatively together and to establish a strong group dynamic.

We will then work towards creating a performance for hospital residents and staff later in the Spring. Several group members are interested in creative writing so we hope to incorporate their skills into this project. A staff member remarked after one session “I can really see the therapeutic benefits of your work”, which was great to hear.
