We deliver our Safe Harbour Emotional Support Programme in our therapeutic settings, which offer a much less formal environment. Our own research identified several benefits to delivering high level emotional support in these stress reducing settings, as key to engaging with people dealing with emotionally chaotic issues.
Giving people an oasis of calm to feel safe in helps reduce the barriers to positive engagement. The space embraces four of the human senses: sight, sound, touch and scented aromas. Our own research evidence shows improved engagement when using these types of Therapeutic Space. All of these together immediately create an environment which reduces stress and anxiety levels.
