Therapeutic Puppetry (TP)

   

About Me

Me Åsa (left) at Gudrun Gaudas Workshop in Sweden, 2013.

I am an art therapist working with child, adolescent and family therapy in Sweden. My background is mainly in mental health care with adults and work with parental support along with support groups at a Children´s Hospital. I have a BSc in Social Work and an ongoing MA as well as psychotherapy studies.

I often focus symbolic aspects in my work such as clients´ inner images, rituals, myth and metaphor, combined with art-making, puppetry, drama, storytelling and mindfulness. My believe in puppetry as a vehicle for change inspired me to create this web site in 2008, with the intent of broadening the field of therapeutic puppetry.
