NEW DATES ADDED

You can now attend the Patient Art Therapy Group in person, on Fridays from 2.00 – 3.30pm in the large group room in Wellspring.

The next sessions are on Fridays –

  • 10th June
  • 17th June
  • 24th June
  • 1st July
  • 8th July
  • 15th July
  • 22nd July

The sessions offer the opportunity for patients to make artwork, reflect and share experiences in a group setting. Art Therapy uses art materials to explore feelings in a safe environment and no previous experience of making art is needed to participate or benefit. The aim is not to make “good” artwork; this is not a taught art class, rather a therapeutic space where all art expressions are valid and welcome. We have been working hard over the past year to improve accessibility. The group is suitable for all, including people with restricted movement or speech.

No referral is needed as the group runs on a “drop-in” basis. Due to the need for social distancing however, there will be a limit initially of 4 places each week, allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Community patients are advised to let us know in advance if they plan to attend. Please call Ross McCrindle, Psychological Therapies Administrator on 020 8525 3229 or email R.McCrindle@STJH.org.uk
