"The Haven www.thehavencentre.com is an information and support centre for people their families and carers coping with life limiting illnesses. We are a charity and all our services are provided free of charge. We offer nurse specialist support and advice, counselling, several complimentary therapies, support for children and much more. The pack has proved inspirational to me, encouraging me to pilot a relaxation course for our clients based on the pack. The CD is of a very good quality and has a good mixture of music and voices."
The Haven Blantyre Health Centre, Scotland
"With financial support from various charitable trusts, I have been able to give ‘Lifting Your Spirits’ packs to hospices, voluntary organisations and individuals who I think will use the packs and receive benefit. For example, a hospital in Motherwell is using it with elderly mental health patients which is proving very helpful. A stress centre in Glasgow lend the packs out to the users to help them with their stress, and one individual who has used the pack fed back that it had really helped them deal with their anxiety."
