Everything that is said in the group is private, and not repeated outside of the group. This extends to it being private that you attended the group, and what is said in the break out rooms not being shared with the wider group. The contact is: confidentiality, flexibility, non-judgement, respect and care.
Our Kalda practitioners take a trauma informed approach to the group therapy, so that all activities are invitational. You can take breaks or leave at any point, you can also remain in the session but stop taking in the guidance.
Kalda has active moderators on the platform, we flag and remove any offensive posts or language. Every user who joins agrees to our community guidelines. We have safety checks when people join: the onboarding call and other verification steps before creating an account.
Peer support, group sharing, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness techniques are all proven to improve your mental health, reducing anxiety and depression. If you use Kalda and are not happy with the product, you can get in touch with the team for your money back.
We work with experts from Public Health England and University College London to ensure we are collecting the right data in a safe way from our users.
