Life at Epilepsy Society is never dull.

We believe in ensuring that everyone gains as much as possible from recreational and leisure activities. We recognise that everyone is different and we tailor activities to meet each individual’s needs and interests.

We offer a wide range of activities for residents both on and off site and encourage everyone to take part in community activities and outings.

Art therapy at Epilepsy Society

Art therapy is one of Epilepsy Society's most important rehabilitation services provided at our Chalfont site to the 90 residents of our care homes and patients of the Sir William Gower's Assessment centre. Participants gain tremendous benefits from taking part in weekly sessions which help them to overcome personal difficulties relating to communication problems, anxiety, behavioural issues, mental health and also enhances their well-being.

Art therapy and seizures

Art therapy allows people to explore their emotions and feelings through the process of creating, painting or drawing. This service is run by a qualified art therapist who offers individual and group sessions and forms secure relationships with the participants.

Arts and crafts

We give users the chance to use conventional art materials to express their own personal creativity. This includes using a self-drying clay in many sessions for sculpting and relief work.
