About Us

POEMS For Children is a charity based in the UK that aims to train professionals to manage anxious children more effectively.

Our training is designed to help you manage, reduce or completely avoid anxiety in children undergoing medical procedures.

The reduction of anxiety at the time of medical intervention has been associated with a reduction in the short- and long-term signs and symptoms of psychological morbidity that children develop after the procedure.


POEMS is an acronym for Positive Outcome and Experience Management Strategies.
