Let us stay strong together
by Spike Milligan
Smiling is infectious
you catch it like the flu
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner
And someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realised
I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile,
then realised its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile again
don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick
and get the world infected!

Art therapy sessions in the home
Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and other similar conditions all share a common theme - difficulty in expression of self and communication with others. Art Therapy gently supports and guides children and adults to express themselves in their own time and unique way.
Stress, depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Art therapy gently helps to uncover the reasons behind the emotions and helps ways to find answers, kick-start motivation, regain perspective, and feel joy.
Children and adults can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic events. Poor sleep, anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. Using art therapy in a safe environment, can help overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing and finding peace in time.
There are a few forms of dementia but there is a common thread - memory & communication problems that give rise to distress, anxiety, anger, and fear. Using art therapy in a safe environment, addresses those negative emotions so joy and peace can be found again.

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more
