A spokesperson for the charity said: "IPSUM is a holistic wellbeing charity using creative and talking therapies based in Swindon supporting people from the town and surrounding areas.

"We frequently support those for whom the NHS seems to have failed them - people with no aim in life, loneliness, emotional problems, a lack of self-confidence.

"We have fabulous art and music studios where clients with little or no experience in these skills can come to learn or continue to improve.

"We also offer creative writing sessions and therapies based on mindlfulness and relaxtion as well as means tested one to one or couples counselling."
