Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication. It requires no artistic ability, as the intention is not a focus on the artistic skills of the patient, but their engagement in a creative personal process. Our art therapist offers guidance and support and the opportunity to explore issues of concern using a variety of art materials.
Group class sizes are limited to 8 people to ensure that everyone gets the attention they need. We also hold one-to-one sessions. Participants are encouraged to enroll only if they can attend all the classes in any one session.
Classes are also run by the popular Mary-Anne Paterson, an empathetic, highly skilled communicator who has developed excellent relationships with our patient groups.
Cancerkin’s complementary caring services are available to patients with breast cancer, free of charge for a series of sessions, regardless of where they have been treated.
