Following a successful pilot in Watford, we are running ‘Dealing with Feelings Art Group’ in Hemel Hempstead starting in April. The group will meet for six weeks and will provide a supportive and safe space where up to eight 11-13 year-olds can explore their feelings and the difficulties they face with therapeutic professionals while undertaking an art project.
Young people at the Watford pilot (see photographs of their amazing artwork) reported having improved friendships and being better able to cope with problems in their lives. One parent reported “she is more relaxed and bubbly. She is no longer crying when going to School and is now developing confidence.”
The Hemel Hempstead project is being run using a grant from Dacorum Borough Council and funds provided by the following County Councillors: Nick Hollinghurst, Ron Tindall, Andrew Williams and William Wyatt-Lowe.
