In this episode I interviewed drama therapist and creative, Lisa Drupstein. We had such a fun conversation and discussed what a drama therapist does, how growth comes from discomfort and also how for her, creativity is her language of communication. We had some fascinating insights into the concept of 'follow your foot' - a term that relates to stepping forwards on a stage to improvise. Plus, the highlight of the show... a song about creativity sung by Lisa on her ukulele. Seriously, do stay tuned to hear this as it's brilliant!
Lisa comes to us from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She’s a Drama Therapist by training and has worked in various settings including hospitals, schools, and private practice. Her most notable projects have included launching an Improv for Anxiety program, teaching Improv and Puppetry classes for adults, and running social skills programs in daycares using puppetry and music. Her creative passions include improv, musical comedy, video production, and photography. Recently, Lisa has launched Local Well, an online initiative that celebrates and encourages creativity and wellness.

The book Lisa referred to in the podcast was In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney.
My favourite quote from Lisa in this episode was "Creativity is my language for communication."
