memotion is the interplay of motion, emotion and the individual

"We believe in the power of dance and movement as a tool for expression, communication and interaction."


With the individual strengths and needs of each child as a starting point we use dance and movement as a therapeutic tool for positive growth, for healing, and for development.

Growing up is a process which each individual goes through in their own way and both children and parents may encounter challenges or unexpected situations along that journey. We are there to support this process and offer a safe space to explore alternative ways of being and interacting, and to help children develop tools which can help them in daily life.

memotion is Athina Liakopoulou and Saskia Watts - a Child Psychologist and a Dance Therapist with a shared love of dance and movement. By working as a duo we give each child personal attention, follow their breakthroughs and struggles, and stimulate their creativity and joy through movement.
