A series of new art therapy workshops for people looking to have a little time out for themselves are to be launched at Nightingale House Hospice.

Run by the hospice’s art therapist, Pam Hutcheson, the course will run in six-week blocks, starting on Wednesday 27 November 5pm-7pm. The sessions are designed to provide headspace for those who feel they never have any downtime to explore their own interests or hobbies.

The greatest benefit of art therapy is you don’t have to be any good at art. The hospice say the sessions are available to those who meet the criteria listed below:

– Have responsibility for caring for someone or regularly look after an elderly or ill or disabled relative.
– Currently work or have worked in the NHS, Local Council, Police or any other public or civil service roles

Art Therapy is proven to strengthen personal identity and confidence by increasing self-esteem and self-worth, as well as discovering new ways to communicate and develop new coping strategies.

Art therapist Pam Hutcheson said: “This course will help participants build personal resilience by learning skills to maintain a good wellbeing. It offers an opportunity to express concerns, within a safe and confidential environment and a time to reflect or relax without having to talk.

“Each session allows you to explore your own creative ideas or use the pre-selected session theme, with an option to share your experiences at the end with the rest of the group.”

To register your interest email or call Pam Hutcheson on 07535 394780.

This course is brought to Nightingale House Hospice courtesy of a grant from the Civil Service Insurance society (CSIS) grant, administered through Hospice UK
