Our Arts and Complementary Therapists offer individual and group sessions on site at St Christopher’s in Sydenham and at the Caritas House in Oprington, in patients’ own homes and in a range of care homes across South East London.
When someone is very ill, everyone in the family is affected. St Christopher’s care extends beyond the treatment of physical symptoms to consider the emotional and social needs of patients, families and their friends and carers.
Drop-in sessions at St Christopher’s for young adults, siblings and friends are held on Saturdays in the Anniversary Centre, a relaxed and bright space with a café, at the hospice in Sydenham.
We help patients manage their condition through treatments in one-to-one appointments and in support groups which help patients feel less alone; they share their experiences and learn tips and ideas about how to cope from each other.
