There is a wealth of evidence that positive wellbeing influences a wide range of outcomes for individuals and communities, including better physical and mental health, higher educational attainment and more social cohesion. Therapies4Forces want to ensure everyone person entitled to access our service is able to do so, as well as 1-2-1 treatments we are now holding relaxation and wellbeing days throughout the UK, in various locations such as Royal British Legion venues and others. If you would like Therapies4Forces to hold a relaxation and wellbeing day at your venue please contact us. Please visit our website regularly for updates of relaxation and wellbeing days.

Leeds 5th September we were able to give lots of free treatments to the families of sick and injured service personnel and veterans as well as some of the veterans also. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who made this possible. We were able to meet with a local therapist who will be providing lots of hypnotherapy treatments for free for injured veterans and their families/carers so if you know anyone who would benefit from this treatment in the Leeds and Wakefield area please let us know. Hypnotherapy can help with stress reduction, confidence, pain management and lots more. If any hypnotherapist in Gloucestershire would like to volunteer their services we would love to hear from you as have had several request for it in this area.
12th September Blue Apple in Warrington what a fantastic day, we decided to join the therapists as a few of the volunteers had been taken ill and had family emergencies so had to leave early in the morning for the 3 hour journey but it was a wonderful day it was so lovely to see the difference when people left they arrived stressed out shoulders hunched and left looking relaxed and smiling. All the people at the Blue Apple made us feel very welcome and we are looking to revisit the Blue Apple again.
