Moving Through Life C.I.C.
Embodied movement for health and wellbeing
Bridget and Enid are RDMPS - Registered Dance Movement Psychotherapists - with ADMP UK,
the UK professional body, and hold MAs from Goldmsiths College, University of London.
Whilst we each have specific areas of additional expertise and experience, we share a
common belief in the transformative capacity of embodied movement. We are passionate about bringing
this healing, life-affirming practice to all those who may benefit, from young to old.
Enid has always been involved in dance. As a child she studied ISDT Ballet, Classical Greek, and National dance and then went on to vocational training at the London School of Contemporary Dance, graduating with a B.A (Hons) degree. Over the next 10 years Enid worked as a freelance dance artist in the UK and Belgium. In 1994 Enid began practising L'Art du Chi, the Stevenovitch method of Tai Chi Chuan, and has been teaching in Europe and the UK for over 15 years. With a focus always revolving around dance, the body and wellbeing, Dance Movement Psychotherapy was Enid's next natural step. In 2009 Enid graduated from Goldsmiths University with a Masters degree and has been working with a variety of client groups including adult mental health, older populations and learning disability.
I was so excited to attend ballet lessons as a child. That excitement never left and, alongside a career in marketing consultancy, I later turned my love of dance into work teaching traditional Egyptian dance: a style that empowers and celebrates the female body. At a workshop I ‘discovered’ Dance Movement Psychotherapy: I graduated from Goldsmiths University with an MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy in 2014.
Alongside work as a DMP and creative arts/play therapist, I am a Keep Fit Association instructor and hold qualifications in CBT, counselling skills, and teaching adults. I also teach and perform traditional-style Egyptian dance, collaborating with professional musicians to bring this ancient art form to schools, whilst also directing a local performance group. I am an associate member of People Dancing and the Laban Guild. I have given interviews for BBC Three Counties Radio on DMP and mental health recovery and on the benefits of Egyptian dance.
