“Can I just say thank you very much for the session I had this morning. Adel made me feel so much more ready to take on the day. I came out of the room feeling refreshed. I would definitely recommend this to other colleagues at Alder Hey, so much so that my line manager has authorised for myself and a colleague to attend the sessions.”
"Very calm soothing voice with clear message approach. After attending this session today with Adel, I would say this should be compulsory across the NHS Trust - to enable all staff's 'well being'."
