Embodied movement for health and wellbeing
Bridget and Enid are Registered Dance Movement Psychotherapists with ADMP UK, the UK professional body for DMP - an organisational member of UKCP. Although each has specific areas of additional expertise and experience, they share a

this healing, life-affirming practice to all those who may benefit, young and old".
