Dramatherapy at Oscailt

Dramatherapy uses theatre to promote growth, self-awareness and positive mental health. Sometimes challenging emotions can impact an individual negatively, causing a person to act out or withdraw. Dramatherapy allows for a positive expression of emotions that can otherwise be overwhelming or difficult to express in words. It provides a safe space for participants to express their feelings and experiences. It helps people to problem solve and set goals. Participants can rehearse healthy interactions and behaviours. It provides individuals with new perspectives, breaking them out of self-imposed rigid and limiting roles.

Drama Therapy with Marianne Marcote

I am a Dramatherapist MIACAT, performer and Assistant Lecturer at Maynooth University. I have clinical experience working with adults suffering from depression, mothers struggling with stress and anxiety and children with special and emotional needs. I am especially interested in women’s mental health issues, parenting and difficult life transitions. I offer individual and group dramatherapy, depending on your needs.


Dramatherapy has been very helpful in order to get to know myself a bit better, also it has thought me to find a better place in my mind and more importantly, in my heart.


Dramatherapy is a creative arts therapy that integrates the person as a whole ? body, mind and imagination as part of its practice.

Sometimes moving away from discussing something just verbally can help us to understand ourselves, our feelings and relationships better. Getting in touch with our creativity can also strengthen our confidence, self esteem and sense of well-being, as well as providing us with new insight and building up our resilience.

Dramatherapy may involve: working with stories and poetry; exploring feelings through conscious movement; ritual structures and mask-making; guided meditation and breath work; creating images with objects or art.

Marianne Marcote

I provide a creative soul-centred approach to Psychotherapy, informed by the principles of Transpersonal Psychology, Energy Psychotherapy, Somatics and Creative Arts Therapy.

This specialised approach to Psychotherapy does not rely solely on talking. A vast number of our past experiences cannot be accessed directly through language because some of these memories inhabit our unconscious mind and body. The language of the unconscious is a language of symbols and can be best accessed through deep meditation and visualisation, creative processes and somatic experiences. Connecting body, mind and soul enables us to access the centre of our being, where healing can take place.

Through a creative, psychotherapeutic and energetic process, I will guide you to gently connect with your unconscious, a process which can ultimately lead you to discover your own anchor, the place you can return to when external reality rattles/triggers/upsets you.

The Transpersonal therapy space offers you a mirror where you can see yourself for who you truly are. My sessions offer a space for you to process life, to heal wounds, to be vulnerable and to grow stronger. I will lead you to a deep connection to your most intimate self, your Real Self.

Sessions may involve:

  • Drawing your emotional map.
  • Healing the emotional recordings that may be keeping your energy trapped.
  • Working on your Transgenerational tree.
  • Harmonising your inner child with your adult self.
  • Heart-centred energy practices to calm the nervous system.
  • Connecting to your embodied creative self to restore your strength and joy for life.

Marianne holds an MA in Dramatherapy, an MA in Transpersonal Therapy and a Diploma in Creative Supervision. She is fully accredited with the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists (IACAT) and was the former Interim Director and Lecturer at the Dramatherapy MA programme at Maynooth University. She is currently supervising students from the MA in Transpersonal Therapy at La Escuela de Atención, Madrid.
