Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and Art Therapy

Are you a carer for a friend or relative? If so, we know how stressful this can be.


Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North and Mindful Arts have put together a 6 week programme of therapies designed to relieve stress. Mindful Arts offers space for nurturing, inspiration and learning stress reduction skills.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teaches people to take better care of themselves by promoting a way of being that helps tackle life problems; physical, mental, social and emotional.


Art Therapy focuses on creative expression. Rather than using words, this practice uses art-making to explore present moment experiences.

We are offering a FREE taster session for any carer interested in finding out more:

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: 6th July 2012, 10.00am-11.00am

Art Therapy: 6th July 2012, 11.30am-12.30pm


The free six week courses are offered to carers from Letchworth and surrounding areas, as follows:

Art Therapy, Thursday mornings from 10.30am to 12.30pm starting August 2nd

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Friday afternoons from 1.30pm to 3.30pm starting August 3rd

All sessions, including the taster sessions, will be held at the Fenners Building in Letchworth Garden City.
