The Creative Living Centre

The Creative Living Centre is a holistic health Centre that supports people with emotional distress. Our belief is that people can help themselves to work towards recoverying from their mental health problems. We help this process by providing three differing approaches that people use together or in isolation. One is a range of creative activities that aim to increase confidence, provide meaningful occupation and develop new skills. An example being, Watercolour Art, Creative Writing, the Walking group, Gardening,Thai-chi, Yoga and Creative Textiles. Secondly people may access a range of therapies such as acupuncture, aromatherapy massage, reflexology, reiki and counselling. Finally people can be welcomed into a warm and friendly space this being our drop-in, supported by volunteer listeners. This space helps relieve for people real difficult issues of social isolation. The combination of these routes backed by staff skilled in supporting people to move forward in their recovery means that the centre provides a powerful and positive approach to mental health provision.
