The expressive art  group offers a way to  explore your feelings – particularly those which can be difficult to put into words – no skill in art or experience is 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 what you’re feeling, which can help to build your confidence.
