We have made some temporary changes to the way we support people and how our teams are contacted. People visiting patients on our wards and visiting our other locations are asked to arrange their visit in advance and to follow some simple steps. This is to ensure the safety of our staff and everyone we support. Thank you for your understanding and support.
Arts therapies (creative therpies) are offered by our psychology and psychological therapies service and are used to facilitate expression and exploration of difficulties and inner experiences where it is difficult to do so in words.
No artistic ability or experience is necessary - just a willingness to use your creativity as part of the therapeutic work. Arts therapies make use of art materials and activities like music and drama.
