Animal Assisted Therapy

Having animals in therapy rooms is increasingly being used to assist people with a wide range of emotional and psychological disorders including depression, recovery from trauma, anxiety and neuroses. The presence of an animal in the therapy room can make sessions more pleasurable and productive, and improve therapeutic outcomes.

Calming and motivating

Clients experience calming effects, brightening of mood, increased self-esteem, stress reduction and increased motivation. Jet or Ruby are also happy to help you, they will listen and not judge or tell you how you should be feeling. Their experience as four legged counsellor's has always been popular with clients.

Listening friends - Jet and Ruby

They have often provided a level of comfort to many. Animal assisted therapy has been proven to aid people as they learn to live without their loved one. My two dogs Jet and Ruby understand how sadness can cause pain. Either of the lovely girls can be available to support you at this sad time. They both love joining in on a therapy session.
