John Pratt, Tingey Painting with Parkinsons program Nancy Tingey 2016 Coordinator
The Tingey Painting with Parkinsons program ©Nancy Tingey 2016 is now recognised as one of the most effective art therapy programs in the world for people with Parkinson's.
The program is structured to bring about significant benefits to those who participate, from relief of symptoms such as tremor to reduced feelings of isolation and depression.

The philosophy underpinning the Tingey Painting with Parkinsons program ©Nancy Tingey 2016 is based on research. The structure used in each session is evidence based and emphasises the process and materials of art to lessen the symptoms of Parkinson's through immersion in the creative process.
Overriding all else, there is respect for each individual and an empathetic understanding of the path being travelled by those with Parkinson's and their carers.
