ART THERAPY GROUP for people with Hoarding Difficulties

  • Do you find yourself overwhelmed with too many possessions and this has negatively affected your quality of life?
  • Would you like to attend an art therapy group to support you in thinking about managing this?

London Art Therapy Centre, sponsored by Notting Hill Genesis, is offering a safe space to explore some of the difficulties associated with hoarding via group discussion, reflection and art-making. In a confidential setting, you will have the opportunity to explore what hoarding may signify and hopefully, with support and understanding, you can begin to tackle some of these difficulties. If you are not a NHG resident and still very interested, please apply anyway as there may be spare places.
