HAVOC is about so much more than the training we do in our classes.
We have practices that help with our mental and spiritual wellbeing, as well as our physical health, however, not everyone can get to our classes and while we’d recommend our own programmes sometimes you just need someone to talk to.
This is the place to find links, helpful advice and support should you be struggling with your mental and spiritual wellbeing.
