My name is Jean-François Jacques. I am a dramatherapist, clinical supervisor, performance maker, author and researcher.
As a therapist and supervisor, I am dedicated to offering the highest quality service to help address and meet the specific needs of individuals and groups.
As a theatre maker and artist, I am driven by a passion for creativity, the way it can change a life and its ability to connect people.
I currently offer individual dramatherapy for adults and young people, and individual clinical supervision for professionals in the health, social and arts sectors. I provide bespoke consultancy workshops to address the identified needs of organisations. I also facilitate and direct the Theatre of Lived Experience and Play/Time Labs. Details of these services can be found by clicking on the menu bar.
I strongly believe in the transformative and healing potential of theatre and play, and their ability to express and communicate emotions and feelings in a way that leads to greater awareness and understanding. I also enormously value how positive and meaningful relationships promote growth and change in individuals and communities.
My practice is in Bedford (Bedfordshire) which is easily accessible from Cambridge, Milton Keynes, St Albans, Luton, Northampton.
