Comfort Zone can train doctors to ‘tune-in’ emotionally to patients to improve wellbeing and psychological health.

Training for Doctors

In my experience of healthcare the more emotionally intelligent doctors are, the more able they are to help patients feel comfortable not just physically but emotionally too. Based on 25 years as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS I have developed Comfort Zone, a training package to help doctors ‘tune-in’ emotionally to patients to help with their wellbeing. Doctors will have a simple tool to help discuss patients’ emotional wellbeing with them, monitor it and help patients feel as good as possible.

What is Comfort Zone?

  • Comfort Zone is a unique intervention designed to help people learn to regulate their own intense emotions in order to remain calm and positive.
  • Comfort Zone can help people regulate their own feelings and improve their potential to promote their own well-being .
  • Comfort Zone is based on Attachment Theory (Bowlby 1969) which is a robust and well evidenced account of emotional development.
