Kim Clayden is a clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. Members following our Facebook page and groups will be familiar with her weekly relaxation sessions, but she's also quite familiar with how the brain works, with a refreshing perspective on pain management and mental health, and an approach to both is both accessible to the layperson and to other HCPs that many patients and professionals find to be extraordinarily helpful.
Jo Southall is our resident Occupational Therapist and hosts a monthly #HMSALiveOT Q&A taking questions on all things Occupational Therapy.
Both are expert patients with a load of lived experience.
Each session includes both Occupational Therapy and Psychotherapeutic input, with Jo freely sharing a wealth of tips for making everyday tasks more manageable, and Kim adding some of the brain chemistry information that explains why we feel the way we do, and better yet, which chemicals do what, how to keep your levels topped up and of course, how to find a dose of the good ones quick-smart when you’re in a pinch. For some, much of this is brand new information, while for others it serves as a refresher that not only “confirmed that how I already manage the condition was in the most part a good way of managing it, but gave me the why's behind it", as one of last year's attendees remarked afterwards.
The weekly sessions deal with different challenges.
This is a series of 5, weekly, 1 hour sessions running from 7-8pm on Saturday Nights.
Sat, 7th Jan 7PM - 8PM (GMT) - Anxiety and mental health
Sat, 14th Jan 7PM - 8PM (GMT) - Pain management

Sat, 28th Jan 7PM - 8PM (GMT) - Weight management
Sat, 4th Feb 7PM - 8PM (GMT) - Ask us anything! About our work, symptoms and how we manage and more.
This session will be run on Zoom and you can chat with Kim and Jo via the comments!
We look forward to seeing you there! (You will be sent an email with a link to the first session within a few hours, so please check your junk/spam folder if you can't see it. Links to the remaining sessions will be sent weekly, once you have registered.)
