Helen Richards

When we talk about The Little Calm Company, we have to mention founder and director Helen Richards.

Helen joined the Royal Navy at the tender age of 17 and afterwards worked for Hampshire Constabulary as a Police Community Support Officer.

Working in a stressful environment, Helen became conscious of how stress affected her colleagues. Realising there was a lack of well-being in the workplace, Helen became the unofficial office masseuse.

After seeing how her massages improved morale and stress levels, Helen decided to become qualified in massage.
In 2017 The Little Calm Company was founded and Helen went on to personally visit 60 companies and organisations within 16 months.

In January 2019 The Little Calm Company won the prestigious, Shaping Portsmouth’s Best Start Up Award.

We used The Little Calm company to come into our offices for Stress Awareness Month. Helen was really friendly and it was really easy to get the day arranged. Our employees loved it and were really happy with the experience. Thanks so much Helen and the Team!

We had Renae join us at a women's event at the Radisson where over 80 women attended. Renae was professional and everyone really enjoyed the massage - it definitely added that special touch to my event! Looking forward to having them next year too! 😉 Harps

I have used The Little Calm Company twice now to offer massages to my members and both times have been fantastic. My members have nothing but good things to say when they come away from their massages and have mentioned that they feel refreshed and revitalised. I would recommend them to anyone and urge other companies to try them and see their staff productivity increase.

We hired The Little Calm Company to give our employees massages as part of our 'April is Stress Awareness' month campaign. Great massages from a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful team. Our employees loved the experience, and everyone felt relaxed and happy afterwards. Would definitely recommend them, and we will be using them again!

We hired The Little Calm Company to give our employees massages as part of our Health and Wellbeing Day. The massages were amazing, everyone came out feeling relaxed and happy. They brought soft music and nice smelling infusers to help create a calming atmosphere too, which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend them!
