For me working with a drama-therapist is always something nice to expect since I know that at some point somebody will have to act/ play/ sing/ scream/ have fun, as part of the self-expression approach.
Joana and me experimented for the first time with facilitating a workshop on Anger Management ("Explain your Anger, don't Express it").
The result was really rewarding (for us but also for the participants)! 4 hours of talking over the causes of Anger, the feelings that mostly relate to it, the cognitive background of it and how our behavior can shift to another approach, from aggressive or passive to assertive. Letting it out felt so relieving for our participants!
It was nice to hear from them that they would like to have more workshop time to work on their Anger and they are looking forward to the advanced workshop on Anger in order to learn more about dealing with this so powerful emotion and transforming it into a constructive behavioral pattern.
Till next time,
Have a nice and peaceful day!

Vassia Sarantopoulou: For me, one of the most challenging moments as an entrepreneur has been the moment of the pitch. If you had a 30-sec/1-min pitch to talk about yourself and your company, what would you say?
Joana Moreira: I have a master degree in Social Psychology and a certification as a Psychodramatist. I speak 5 languages and have more than 10 years of broad professional experience in two different countries.
My last project as a counsellor and trainer focuses on the use of action methods such as spontaneous dramatization, role play and dramatic self-presentation to raise the energy of the participants and boost their inspiration. This increases their commitment in the search and development of their own potentialities.
Being able to help others, either as a counsellor, a trainer or a volunteer, is every time very gratifying, both personally and professionally. And this is one of the many reasons I consider myself a happy person.
