We offer animal assisted therapy for a range of reasons. Below are just a few. We are not offering councelling but do have a trained psychotherapist or who is happy to discuss working together to achieve the measurable targets you would like to address.
Students at Universtiy often find it difficult to cope with their newfound independence and animal assited therapy is useful to encoutrage interaction with their peers. Often the worst cases do not seek help and the session allows for highlighting signposting. We offer an Animal and Art Therapy project which we have developed with local universities.
People of all ages can have specific needs and learning difficulties. We can work with them on functional skills, social interaction, simple numeracy and literacy. We have worked with selective mutes on simple communication and people displaying extreme reactions in public due to phobias.
We have projects for adults and children at risk of prison, gang involvement, and substance abuse to get them integating more into society.
People struggling to re-engage with work after illness or long term employment can improve self esteem and work on lost or dormant skills.
