NHS Staff Discount and Gratitude

Discounts offered for all NHS staff to show gratitude for their hard work.  The first 3 sessions are £30 as a discount, then regular rate applies afterwards.

Definition – Gratitude is a warm feeling of thankfulness towards an entity, or towards specific individuals. The person who feels gratitude is thankful for what they have, and does not constantly seek more.

Thank you NHS
I have always been grateful for the NHS service, however since the Covid-19 pandemic I think I recognise more reasons to be grateful.  My gratitude is partly due to times when I or someone I love have relied heavily on the services offered. In addition to this, I now feel grateful for the efforts of the NHS to look after those who fall ill with Covid-19.

It can be very easy to take services like the NHS for granted or criticise wait times, however I wonder where we would be without the service. I am also grateful for a society which values the health of all vs only the ones who can afford.

For this reason, I would like to show my gratitude by offering a reduced rate for counselling sessions for anyone working for the NHS.

Gratitude is very important in our lives as humans. There are many ways to show gratitude, such as;

  • saying “Thank you”
  • listening with intent to others
  • give of your time (as time is very precious)

Does it serve a purpose?  Simply put YES

What benefit is there to being grateful? Many

  • Lights up the brain’s reward pathways

Benefits of Gratitude
In parting, I would like to show my gratitude to the men and women of the NHS for making our health service what it is. It may not be perfect but I am so thankful for each and every one of you, from the Doctors to the Staff who schedule appointments. Especially big thanks to those who put their own lives at risk by working directly with Covid patients.


When making an appointment please mention that you work for the NHS and you will receive a £20 discount making sessions £30 instead of £50.
