Shi Han has many years of experience in the field of mental health, having worked with adults, youth and children in settings including inpatient and outpatient mental health, non-profit services, schools as well community projects, both locally and in the UK. She is currently collaborating with various organisations including the Institute of Mental Health, to pilot services either directly involving, or related to Dance Movement Psychotherapy.
Shi Han teaches on the SUSS Expressive Arts Therapy Graduate Diploma programme, and has been invited by the University of Derby to guest lecture on its Dance Movement Psychotherapy Masters programme.
Shi Han’s clinical work is derived from her interests and experience in somatic practice, existential concerns, psychodynamic approaches and attachment.
