"The room’s doing all the work. Everything is here and my mind can just interact with the room and I just sit back."

“It’s so different to just outside the door. It helps you escape what was on your mind when you’re outside, because it’s such a different environment… It’s like going to a different world.”

Creative Sensory Spaces - Bliss Cavanagh

"Our sensory room brings so much joy, peace and happiness... I’m over the moon with it. It’s been a great investment. The proof is there. Every week I get new people calling up saying I’ve heard about the sensory room or my friend’s child is going there and I’ve seen a huge improvement in their behaviour… it’s the opportunity to calm down... they learn how to de-escalate. They’re calmer, they’re more engaged… we haven’t had any meltdowns. Thank you to Creative Sensory Spaces for bringing so many smiles and so much wonder into every single day!"
