love:art FREE new parent/carer art therapy group
Updated: Nov 1, 2022
Being a parent/carer is challenging. It is hard to make time for yourself and prioritise your own mental health. We are two Art Therapists who are also parents ourselves and offer a non-judgemental and creative space for you to reflect and share your experiences. You are more than welcome to bring your baby (under six months). We will have toys and playmats to keep your baby comfortable. This baby doesn't have to be your first, parents/carers of multiple children are welcome as long as your youngest is under six months.
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art making as well as talking to aid communication and improve mental health and wellbeing. An art therapist is a healthcare professional trained to Masters level.
What to expect from the group:
• A safe creative space to reflect on your experiences
• Run by two qualified art therapists who will ensure a non-judgemental, supportive environment
• A small group of up to eight parents
• Time for personal artmaking and
• Takes place in our heated Canopy (safari tent)
The group is on Thursdays 10-11.30am for eight weeks. Runs 17 November 2022 - 19 January with a break for Christmas.
All materials and equipment and a snack and hot drink will be provided.
We have found funding for this group so it is now free to attend.
