Programme Director
Sharon Simpson

MA, MSc, Cert Ed, Registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist (RDMP)


Sharon Simpson is a trained independent dance movement psychotherapist, registered member of the Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK (ADMP UK ) and founder of the Dance Therapy Centre. She comes from a broad and diverse background having trained as a teacher and directed and managed her own conflict management training company, securing major contracts with the BBC and local authority departments across the UK and Northern Ireland.

The Dance Therapy Centre helps to improve the mental and physical health of people of all ages and abilities. Since its inception, our programmes have helped to provide a way of communicating, that is not just about sitting and talking. Sometimes it is difficult to manage and talk about emotions. Finding ways of releasing and expressing ourselves through spontaneous, expressive movement and dance can help create opportunities to engage in direct conversations.


Sharon has extensive experience in developing dance therapy programmes in a range of organisations including early childhood settings, mainstream schools, children’s charities, child and adolescent mental health services, adult health care and staff wellbeing days.

Sharon is Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) cleared and has obtained relevant public insurance associated with the profession.


Getting Involved
Sharon works with a team of experienced associates from across the creative arts therapies (music, drama and art) that are Health Professional Council (HPC) registered and have worked in diverse environments with excellent track records.

Dance therapy is receiving widespread attention in all kinds of settings and we are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to get involved at all levels of the organisation.
