Mindful Art Sessions with Prevent Breast Cancer

Whether you have breast cancer or a genetic mutation that increases your risk of developing breast cancer, the emotional rollercoaster throughout any diagnosis can be challenging to process and talk about. From January 2024 I will be holding group mindful art sessions with Prevent Breast Cancer in The Nightingale Centre at Wythenshawe hospital., offering a space to relax, slow down and connect with yourself and others through the art you create. Art making can induce a flow state and is a form of mindfulness and meditation (most of the time without realising!) which can be a useful coping mechanism and the group sessions may also decrease loneliness and isolation by interacting with others through shared experiences. Research has found that making art can activate reward pathways in the brain; reducing stress, lowering anxiety levels and improving your overall mood. I understand that revisiting a place where you have bad experiences can be extremely daunting, but the purpose of me holding them here is for you to gain some control in somewhere you possibly always felt very out of control of your own body and well-being.

The sessions will run every Wednesday from 6.30pm - 7.30pm during term times, and each course will be a duration of 6 weeks. I am currently studying a Masters Degree in Art Psychotherapy at the University of Chester which is regulated by the Health Care Professions Council, the sessions will be part of a research project being conducted by the hospital and funded by the Arts Council, therefore sessions are free!

If you are interested in taking part in the sessions, please fill out the form below and I will be in touch with more information soon!
