Her anxiety began to creep up but she did pretty well not to struggle while the nurse began. However, the needle didn't go in properly and we could see Elki starting to panic (as were we) but with some breathing techniques I learnt from the Calm Fairy [Yoga Therapist] at the hospital, Elki soon calmed down and breathed with me while they repositioned the needle... we are so proud of Elki today, she was the bravest we have ever seen her.

"This is the most fulfilling work I've ever done"...
"I have hundreds of stories and testimonials (most of which I am not not allowed to tell as it breaches hospital policy/ patient confidentiality) about how the Calm Fairies service has benefited young patients.
The stories range from distracting little ones with playful activities whilst they get a cannulla removed; to guiding a patient through focused breathing whilst they endure another wave of abdominal pain; to giving hand massages and guided relaxations to help overtired patients fall asleep; to helping teens with eating disorders process the traumatic experience having to be fed through a nasal gastric tube.
This work is not for the faint hearted, but it is for the whole hearted.
If you deeply care for the wellbeing of kids and want to help them through what might be one of their darkest days, then please consider applying to join the Calm Fairies team."
