- "Covid Calm sessions are perfect for us NHS staff"
"This is our psychological PPE! They’re facilitated by experienced trauma-aware trainers and are scientifically based. 30 min, no commitment, leave when you need, and suitable for all, even hard-core introverts ( just mute and switch off the video). Really helpful for me as a busy GP: session at lunch time or in the evening... Helped to relax, reconnect to present moment and feel more in charge. Well worth 30 min!"
