What People Think

"Pupils and children complete the ‘calm brain’ activities at least three times a day ... This helps them to refocus their minds after breaktime and lunchtime, for example. As a result, the school is a calm and very purposeful learning environment. Pupils are focused and ready to learn after playtime and for the whole day, including late afternoon. This strategy has also improved pupils’ behaviour."

OFSTED School Inspection, February 2019

... the impact of this has been positive. The staff have found the system extremely easy to utilise and navigate. The pupils clearly enjoy their sessions and are fully engaged. The atmosphere within the school is calm, purposeful and respectful

"There has been a noticeable change in the demeanour and levels of anxiety exhibited by those children who have emotional needs"

"I created CalmBrain® to improve mental health and wellbeing in all children"
Dr. Sarah Taylor
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
Creator of CalmBrain

Dr. Sarah Taylor is the creator of CalmBrain®. Sarah is a Clinical Psychologist, with wide ranging experience across a number of areas of clinical practice. This has built on the early years of her career where she was a Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher in primary and special needs education establishments.

Sarah has spent several years extensively researching the combined roles that science, psychology, and physical reflexes have on mental health.

This was borne of a desire to identify the causes behind a well publicised fact that an increasing number of children today experience anxiety, depression and difficulty attending, co-operating and controlling behaviour at school and in the home.

The Development of the CalmBrain® Approach

There is a need for a solution that is more sensitively attuned to a child or adult’s psychological needs.

It is Sarah’s conclusion that a large proportion of individuals will not noticeably benefit from talking therapies. Due to the stresses and pressure of modern life, most children (in particular) do not have fundamental behavioural problems; rather these are often symptoms of the reality that children need to emotionally regulate but do not know how.

Sarah created an approach and assessment programme to meet this challenge, that in design would provide an easily accessible psychological intervention that can be used by, and benefit everyone that uses it.

Sarah is very well supported by the CalmBrain team who have brought her research and this vision to life.
