Filled with cosy therapy seating, blissfully bubbling bubble walls and soft mood lighting, Sensory Calming Rooms give users the opportunity to safely balance out their senses, relax, and calm down in a closed safe environment.
Safe Quiet Rooms are therapeutic spaces specially designed for people with autism, mental disabilities and learning difficulties to find calm and quiet. It’s a place to safely release anxiety, stress and energy, before falling back into the room's comforting elements as their emotions level out.
Quiet rooms also provide a meditative space for individuality, where users can manage their behaviour. Learning how to control their senses - in their own time and in their own way - helps users build their self-confidence, and over time, feel more in control of their bodies and emotions. Gradually users might also develop the maturity to request time in the room when they feel their stress levels rising, reducing the opportunity for a crisis.
With softly stimulating mood lighting, blissfully bubbling bubble walls, cosy seating and soft cushioned wall padding – users can interact with the room in a way that works for them safely, whether they’re letting off steam or laying back in a beanbag, watching the twinkling lights above them.
Calming Rooms can be used in specialist environments such as Mental Health Homes and Wards and more general environments like Schools to support social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties.
