Our qualified practitioners are offering additional support for those suffering from increased anxiety or worsening mental health due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll offer this support in the form of up to 5 online support sessions with our practitioners who will give advice on managing your anxieties.
These sessions will be tailored to your needs and last approximately 30 minutes. We’ll focus on practical advice on how you can help to manage your mental health during uncertain times. This might include breathing techniques, advice on managing panic attacks and mindfulness exercises – We’re here for you.

“I had an amazing experience with Smart TMS. I was mentally badly affected by coronavirus pandemic and stopped going out, was afraid to touch anything at home as everything seemed contaminated, I used to spend most of the day cleaning rather than spending time with my daughter. Smart TMS helped me to reduce my anxiety, start going out again, do my own shopping and in many other things. I could not thank my practitioner enough, she gave me my life back.”
