Vision & Mission
Wholeness provides a variety of services including Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP), Dance classes, 1:1 exam choreography support, executive coaching, conferences and retreats. We are a charity organisation that work with all members of the community, some of which are the most marginalised and vulnerable. Based in Swansea, South Wales, Wholeness integrates creative arts therapy within the community and the business environment.
DMP is one of the creative arts-based therapies, founded on the principle that movement reflects a person’s pattern of thinking and feeling. The process uses movement and dance to facilitate emotional, physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being. DMP is suited to all ages and abilities, its combined non-verbal and verbal creative approach allows for individual expression to emerge and personal empowerment. Wholeness Dance Therapy engages with all members of society promoting self-expression through a variety of creative arts including dance, movement, drama and art. Therapy can be accessed in a group or 1:1 setting.
The values of person-centred DMP can also be transferred to the business environment. They can support training to minimise stress, anxiety, physical and emotional fatigue and enhance social and emotional intelligence, supporting greater resilience in and out of the workplace.
