Jill Whittingham is planning to run an exciting new photography group at the Neuro Therapy Centre.  But this will be no ordinary photography group – in the session photos will be used to explore wellbeing and discover how we can make connections through the power of an image.

The group will meet at the centre, once a week for 8 weeks, with photo tasks set between the sessions.  It will be open to all levels of experience and all types of camera ownership from a mobile phone to DSLR (“the best camera is the one in your hand” is an frequently used phrase by photographers!).

Jill has been a counsellor for 18 years and has often incorporated photography into her work.  More recently she has gravitated towards using photography as a wellbeing tool and has run several therapeutic photography projects. She is proud to call herself a socially engaged photographer.

In Focus will be open to all centre members. All you need to take part is an inquisitiveness about the world around you.  You might be looking to learn new wellbeing tools, or a new hobby, you might be seeking the camaraderie that can be found in a group and make some new connections.  Perhaps you already have an interest in photography and wonder how it can be connected to wellbeing?

But before we can get the In Focus sessions up and running, we have to secure the funding.  If the group sounds like something you would be interested in, could I ask you to fill in the short survey below?  The survey only takes two minutes to complete.
