- Health in Mind
This service gives people the opportunity to work with their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing using art materials alongside talking.
You will learn more about yourself, your relationships and your feelings and through this awareness begin to make changes in your life. One-to-one therapy and group work is available.
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.
Health in Mind can work with you if you have suffered trauma, abuse, loss and w are struggling with the impact of this.
During the COVID19 pandemic we have been exploring new ways to deliver our service. Please see below for what is currently available.
Online Art therapy group
We are currently offering a new weekly Art therapy group on Monday 1.00-2.30pm on Zoom. This is open to anyone who has been referred or has self-referred to the Art Psychotherapy service and who is not currently engaged in either of our groups, or who has just recently ended their therapeutic support.
The group does not require weekly attendance and can be used as frequently or infrequently as you like. Attending this group does not affect your position on the Art Psychotherapy waiting list for one-to-one or long-term group support.
Health in Mind ask that anyone intending to join, please email the team by midday on the day you wish to attend
How to access the service
There is currently a waiting list for 1-1 art psychotherapy, however, we are prioritising assessments and individuals can access the online weekly group as soon as they have had an initial referral meeting. New referrals are offered an initial assessment of up to 3 sessions with a further session to review. This helps to determine whether art psychotherapy support is appropriate and to potentially signpost individuals to other supports.
If you would like more information or are interested in referring yourself or someone else please contact,
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
