I am one of, probably, many extremely fortunate beneficiaries of the ECT, who are very kindly and generously supporting my retraining as a dramatherapist. The 3-year part time MA course at Roehampton University is one of the most reputable ones in the UK, but it is something I could never afford as an actor without the ECT’s support.
The course so far has challenged and pushed me on many levels of personal and professional development: I have been learning about the therapeutic process both in theory and very much in practice too, as well as the client-therapist relationship. The course is a powerful mix of academia and hands-on practice all the way through the 3 years. Besides providing me with an HCPC qualification and new vocational prospects, it also facilitates a journey to get to know yourself at levels you had never previously imagined possible. I will make every effort to repay the generosity and vital support currently received from the ECT.
