  • Fabulous over 50s Support Group

Join us via Zoom for our Fabulous over 50’s Support Group.

This month we will be joined by Art Therapist and Counceller Sandra Buchanan.

Sandy is Arts Therapist, Counsellor, and Clinical Supervisor with over ten years’ experience delivering therapeutic group activities. Having completed her Master’s in Therapeutic Arts at Think Pink, she has a close connection to our programs and participants.

In her therapeutic work, Sandra draws on her own lived experience of stage 3 breast cancer while using evidence-based processes that are trauma informed, grounding and person centered to promote wellbeing.

In this Months Support Group Art Therapy Session: MY KEY FOR MY DOOR

Hope and cancer survivorship are topical conversations at the moment and can be emotionally difficult to contemplate.

Participants will be invited to draw/paint/sketch a key and then a door with as much detail as they choose. This will be followed by a brief guided relaxation exercise.

This activity will be an opportunity for participants to identify what their cancer experience has brought to their world and how they would like to move forward. Identifying ways of being that can be left behind, acceptance and hope for what the future can look like.

Materials participants need: Paper, pencils/paints/felt-pens

A diagnosis of breast cancer can bring many challenges and sometimes we might not feel that fabulous. Whether you have just turned 50 or are beyond, this group is for you.

In this group you will have an opportunity to meet others who are travelling a similar life path and to share your experiences. This group offers women a chance to connect with others, learn coping strategies and gather information. We discuss how we can best support you through this journey.  The sessions are a safe space to share, learn and help each other get through this hurdle. The sessions are run by our Breast Care Nurse Consultant Jamie Kelly and we are often joined by a guest speaker to offer their expertise on a particular breast cancer topic or health related topic.
