These appointments are held face-to-face at our Old Brampton site and offer the opportunity to meet other professionals such as therapists and social workers.
Horticultural Therapy sessions are held on the last Friday of the month in our gardens at Old Brampton and run between March and September. Sessions include tending the gardens as well as activities such as soap making and pot painting.
We are offering a range of face-to-face group sessions including chair-based exercises, craft activity sessions and drop-in sessions. We can also introduce you to the complementary therapy team. These sessions offer peer support and access to Day Services staff in a friendly and welcoming environment.
