Dramatherapist, theatre maker, psychologist, supervisor. Graduate of Master and Postgraduate Studies in Psychology at Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague, with self-experience trainings in psychotherapy, dramatherapy and supervision; founding member of the Association of Dramatherapists of the Czech Republic.
I provide therapy and counseling for a number of client groups (mental illness, learning difficulties, addiction, ADHD, behavioral disorders). Within the framework of theatrical practice I am acting as a director, a dramaturgist and an actor. I am a co-founder of the UJETO Theater, a professional ensemble of actors with or without an obvious disability, and co-founder of Teatralie, a nonprofit organization focusing on application and research of theater in specific groups, both artistic and non-artistic.
I have been cooperating with CELLO since 2013, mainly as a lecturer and a supervisor in the field of social services users and direct care workers in facilities for people with disabilities in the South Moravian Region. Until now, I have worked mainly with dramatherapeutic groups for users and their therapists, co-lectured courses "Introduction of dramatherapy when working with handicaped users" or "Introduction to the theatrical work in specific groups“, and have provided supervision of dramatherapy groups for several years. Together with my colleague Ilona Labuťová, we are currently maintaining methodological consultations supporting the development of theater ensembles in some of these facilities (in cooperation with the Czech Alzheimer Society).
