Part of a Whole
Each month The Patient Palette will offer a small group session at no cost for members of our Patient Palette community. This month we will be offering:
A MIGRAINE VISUAL: SENSORY DISTURBANCES & STRENGTH
June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month
This group is offered to all aged 18+ who are experiencing a recent diagnosis or have chronic migraine with aura (classic migraine). Find a creative way to express yourself through the intense pain and daily life adjustments that you are forced to make when an unexpected migraine attack (or cluster) leaves you unable to function in your personal or professional life.
Do you experience flashing lights? Limited vision? Zig zags and scotomas in your visual field? Numbness in your limbs or face? Speech or language difficulty? Muscle weakness? Excessive Perspiration? Nausea or Vomiting? Intense head pain? Sensitivity to light? Postdrome that lasts for days? Have you ever been to the ER due to your migraine? Do you stay home certain days or weeks each month in fear of a migraine attack? Have you had a bad side effect to a medicine? Have you suffered the loss of personal or professional relationships due to this condition?
There is an opportunity to find congruity among other migraine sufferers through this arts-based session. The group is led by an art therapist who suffers with migraine with aura since childhood.
This month's group session will be offered:
Wednesday, June 30th at 8pm
Art supplies that you have at hand are sufficient, such as yarn, crayons, markers, colored pencils, paints, oil pastels, found objects, clay, and paper.
Space is limited so the screen does not become too busy. You must sign up via the form below. Please sign up at least 5 days before the group so we can let you know if there is still room. You will receive a response from us confirming your place and/or letting you know if we are full for that session. If we regretfully cannot offer you a spot, please sign up again for another month's group session!
If you are not yet a registered community member of the Patient Palette, you will be required to have a 20 minute First Client greeting call and submit in-take paperwork in our client portal before being able to attend. Since this is an art therapy group, we have certain safety standards we must abide by. We appreciate your understanding! If you do not meet this requirement 48 hours in advance of the session, we will release your spot so that someone else in our community has the opportunity to partake.
If a financial sensitivity prevents you from purchasing art supplies, please let us know. We are happy to mail you a small "Patient Palette: Artist Supplies" package.
