PSYCHOTHERAPY for the ARTS and ARTISTS
PSYCHOTHERAPY for ACTORS and PRODUCTION COMPANY STAFF
Rachel Melvald can work on set in TV/FILM productions to ease tension between crew/actors to avert problems in production and on set and to improve the overall production experience and outcome.
Movies affect us powerfully because the combined impact of music, dialogue, lighting, camera angles, and sound effects enables a film to bypass ordinary defensive censors in us. They draw us into the viewing experience, but at the same time - often more easily than in real life - afford a unique opportunity to retain a perspective outside the experience, the observer's view.
Cinema Therapy takes advantage of a movie's impact and teaches watching films with conscious awareness. Like dream work, inquiries into emotional responses to movies open a window to our soul.
