In 1998 I graduated as a Social Worker. After completing my study I moved to Great Britain where I stayed for approx 9 years. .I gained 20 years of working experience in field and family and child social work and health care, I worked in various settings and with different client groups. This included working as social worker, youth professional and therapist with children and adults with mental health problems, ADHD, autism, challenging behaviour,, the elderly, physically and mentally disabled people, migrants, personality disorder, (complex) trauma.   In 2005 I gained my bachelor and master diploma in Drama therapy in London at the University of Herdfordshire. 

Over the years I completed various courses to develop myself further as a professional. This included training in Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Developmental Transformations, Narrative Sandplay, Forum theatre and Narrative therapy.

What people say: 'Talking to the group after Hanne had left it became apparent that they valued her approach and found the exercises she introduced to be 'interesting', 'challenging' and 'enjoyable'. She managed to make the group feel secure and offered ample oppurtunity for the group to use drama and discussion as means of exploration. Overall I found Hanne to be an exceptionally thoughtful and professional student. She engaged fully in her task and set about achieving aims and objectives that she had highlighted. I do think Hanne will make a very good dramatherapist as she has a natural inclination to be compassionate as well as challenging and engaging'. Oud Stagebegeleider.
