Drop in

Expressive art is a way to explore your feelings – particularly those which can be difficult to put into words – with no skill or experience required.

Concentrating on creating art can help you slow down, relax and process your thoughts. Your unconscious mind can express feelings through pictures, colours and shapes that you might struggle to put into words. And by doing that you may begin to understand more about what you’re feeling, which can help to build your confidence.

Group session

Drop in

While a diagnosis of cancer can be very complex and challenging, there are many things a person can do to improve their general wellbeing and to help them regain a sense of control.

The workshop aims to help people understand cancer and the treatments available, as well as potential side effects, how to manage them and how to look after themselves. Knowing what is ahead can often help to reduce anxiety and uncertainty.

Getting Started with Cancer Treatment can help people take an active role in their treatment and recovery, and give them a chance to ask questions and share experiences with people who understand what they’re going through. There will be an opportunity to learn about managing stress, staying active, eating well and finding support. In addition, it is also a chance to hear about the rest of the programme of support available at Maggie’s Oxford.

The workshop will be facilitated by a medical professional from the hospital along with one of our Cancer Support Specialists.
