Art Psychotherapy at the Orchard Centre

Art Psychotherapy is available to those who have mental health difficulties living in Midlothian.

The service gives people the opportunity to work on their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing using art materials alongside talking.

The art materials can give a voice to feelings that are hard to express. Sometimes words may not be easy, but squeezing wet sticky clay, drawing, painting or cutting things up can give expression to something deep down.

The Orchard Centre offer one-to-one and group sessions.

  • 4 week ‘taster’ group
