Here are some comments from people using the centre:-
Thank you very much for arranging the Art Therapy event last week. I found it very beneficial and very enjoyable. I went and bought a sketch pad and paints that afternoon.
I am sure that it helps with relaxation and I am sure all the others in the group felt the same. Please pass on my thanks to Pat – it was very much appreciated. Thank you.
The attendance at the group was great today , I enjoyed chatting to everyone there - catching up on how they were and getting tips to help me through my treatment/passing on advice I had, and also benefitting from the most marvellous facial massage treatment. I hadn't realised how much I needed the massage until I felt the immediate relaxation the massage provided me with in my facial muscles.
The group is invaluable for me as it makes the different complementary treatments so accessible. I find it reassuring that the treatment truly compliments my chemo.
I missed attending the group for 2 successive weeks as a result chemo and the Queens Jubilee. The result was I bottled up my tension and ended up getting a locked jaw that required a hospital visit to assess how to release it. I firmly believe that my jaw locked because I have not been able to fully relax and release the tension that builds up with me going through treatment, and in addition the stress generated through having 2 of my 3 daughters taking GCSE's and A levels.
I really would like to thank everyone who makes the group happen - please pass on my email if you can.
I will not be there next week as I have chemo but assure you I will be there for my Look Good Feel Better session, as I am really looking forward to it.
You wouldn't believe what has happened in the last few weeks. I have been head hunted and am now working for ---- in Macclesfield. The hours I am now working cover Monday-Thursday, which means I will not be able to join you on a Tuesday, something I am feeling very sad about as you have been so supportive and have completely changed the way I look at living with cancer. Thank you, you have taught me to be so optimistic. The plus side means that I now have my weekends free to visit my sister with my husband so that we can both support my sister and brother in law.
Many thanks for your support. You supported me when I was still in the 1st stages of shock at my sisters diagnosis and when I was having trouble coming to terms with it. I realise things can't change but at least we can still enjoy life. If there is anything I can do to support you in the background I will be delighted to help.

I always feel positive when I go home from here.
It doesn’t matter how negative I am when I arrive my spirits feel lifted when I leave.
