“I’m in my third year of MA Dance and Movement Psychotherapy training, and have been with Linsey in various capacities as she has been my teacher, supervisor and/or tutor since the first year. Linsey embodies the qualities of the person-centred therapist: unconditional positive regard, congruence, and empathy. Her knowledge and experience and commitment give us students confidence in her. She has been utterly reliable, being there for us without fail every week and also being there emotionally – wise and supportive. At the same time she is approachable and ‘human’ so I can just be myself with her (struggles and all!). It has been at times a difficult training and I’m not sure I would have been able to see it through without Linsey’s support.”

“Linsey is a truly inspirational teacher and supervisor. Her creative approach is bolstered by academic insight and a wealth of lived experience.
Linsey really listens and endeavours to understand everyones perspective. Her guidance has been invaluable in my journey into the world of dance therapy. Connecting theory and practice, she has enabled me to find my own wisdom and confidence as a professional DMP.”

“Linsey provides a safe, stimulating and creative supervisory environment. For me she embodies the right mix between affirmation and curiosity, expertise and letting me figure things out for myself. This means that the supervision I have from her leaves me feeling empowered, while it lightens the psychotherapeutic load and stretches my capacities as a multi-modal dance movement psychotherapist. I work with children with a variety of needs including physical and mental health, secondary age teenagers, young and older adults while also providing psychotherapeutic support to teachers. She is well equipped to support all the areas of my group and 1:1 practice. I cannot recommend her highly enough to you.”

“Linsey Clark was a lecturer at Dance Voice whilst I was obtaining my MA in Movement Psychotherapy; she was also my tutor in my second and third year of the course. Linsey is an exceptional teacher/tutor, she is incredibly knowledgeable on the course content, and in DMP in general. Her support throughout the course was invaluable; she was patient but also encouraging when I needed the motivation and would always push me in the right direction when I faltered.
Her tutorials gave me the space to question, reflect and develop within my DMP research and work. Her expertise, nature and experience meant that I always valued her advice both when working with clients and with regards to my research. Linsey’s feedback on essays and dissertation drafts was always thorough and on time, her notes always pointed me in the right direction for where to delve deeper. Her teaching style meant that I left each tutorial wanting to learn more and grow as a practitioner. She was a constant source of support and inspiration. Since graduating Linsey has agreed to be my supervisor for my Movement Therapy work and she continues to guide me through my DMP journey.”

“To whomever it may concern, Lakehouse and Stationhouse Nurseries have been working with Linsey Clarke for over 5 years and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Linsey’s knowledge of child development and how to engage and develop children through music and movement is fantastic. Linseys sessions are calm, creative and engaging and the children are always enthusiastic to take part. Linsey is extremely reliable and well prepared, bringing beautiful resources to augment the session.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Lindsey since May 2018, when I stepped into the role of academic link tutor at Canterbury Christ Church University. I know the previous year had been a time of change for the programme, with the initial team closing, a death of a colleague, and the need for this programme to continue.
Throughout this time Lindsey has stayed completely professional; supporting the students above and beyond the job description, with a continuing commitment to her students, their programme and the profession they represent. She has a very therapeutic rapport with her students and has coached many of them through this last year, and onto completing their dissertations to a high standard. This has been commented on, and commended by the External Examiner for this programme at the last two exam boards.
It has been a joy working with Lindsey over this last year, and I recommend her to you, as an outstanding, dedicated representative of her profession as a dance therapist, and also as a dedicated educator, who supports her students to a high level. I wish her well in her future endeavours. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly; firstname.lastname@example.org“
