My Creative Life is an exciting new programme to support you to manage your condition through creative activities
This programme is a chance for you to socialise with other people who understand what it is like to live with a neurological condition, whilst doing something fun and creative at the same time. You don't need to be an artist to take part. Just a willingness to be open and share experiences with others in a safe setting.
About the programme
The online programme is divided into seven sessions and is run by our Peer Support Co-ordinator. Each session uses simple, creative activities which are designed to support you to reflect on a specific issue.
The programme focuses on these five areas:
- You and your condition
How to see yourself in a more positive light
- Embracing your body
Coping and pacing strategies
- Taking charge
Identifying your strengths and how to develop them going forward
- Connecting with others
Realising you are not alone
- What's important to you
Finding time for yourself
Taking part in the programme
Sessions run on alternate Fridays, starting from 4 June 2021, 10:30am - 12pm.
There are seven sessions in total with an optional 'check-in' on the weeks between. The course is free to attend and there are limited places available.
"Peer support is a key aspect of the course and we will be working in a small group where we have time to share personal experiences and insights with each other in a safe and supportive space. I am looking forward to welcoming you onto the course!"
The My Creative Life programme starting in June is now full. However, please register your details below to be added to the waiting list.
