Founder ~ Psychotherapist ~ Intimacy Coordinator
Rosanna (she/her) is an accredited psychotherapist and intimacy coordinator, grounded in years of lived experience in the film and television industry. She is passionate about the continuing evolution of industry, contributing to cast & crew wellbeing and supporting the creative process through intimate story-telling.
Rosanna has over thirteen years of therapeutic experience and eight years experience working in the film and television industry, which she combines to offer tailored support to productions and networks who are centring cast and crew wellbeing.
After gaining an understanding of life on set during work experience in production aged 16, Rosanna fell in love with film and worked in costume through her twenties with principal and supporting artists on set. (For feature film credits please see: www.imdb.me/rosanna)
She went on to pursue therapeutic training in Integrative Psychotherapy and later in Systemic Psychotherapy at The Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust.
She has worked with individuals, couples and families in a range of settings across the public sector managing different levels of distress, such as addiction, anxiety and depression as well as those living with mental health diagnoses such as schizophrenia, personality disorders and PTSD.
She is accredited with the UKCP and BACP, trained in a range of additional disciplines and has a special interest in trauma and cross-cultural work.
Following the loss of former film colleagues to suicide and the release of The Film & TV Charity's 'Looking Glass report' in 2019 (highlighting the extent of mental health needs in the creative industries), Rosanna is keen to support & strengthen working practices and the mental health & wellbeing of industry professionals.
Combining skills and experience in embodiment and movement practices, with intimacy coordination training to BECTU and SAG-AFTRA requirements, Rosanna also works as an intimacy coordinator/choreographer. Please visit www.rosannanormanton.com for intimacy coordination services and more information.
Although intimacy coordination and psychotherapy are different skillsets, Rosanna's therapeutic background has equipped her to support communication and interaction between cast members & crew, navigate dynamics, boundaries and consent, whilst having a deep understanding of trauma and embodiment; all of which are integral to the IC role.
