Guided Animal Therapy Sessions

Emotional support. Develop emotional regulation skills. Positive education. General wellbeing. Coping strategies. Develop social skills. Mindfulness & growth mindsets.

More than just spending time with lovely animals, specific goals are identified and set (with teachers and/or parents) in order to best meet the unique needs of the selected individuals or small groups.

Ideal for all students and for students who need…

  • Assistance in coping with the demands of daily school life
  • Support from a traumatic experience
  • Help coping with a health problem or mental disorder (such as a developmental delay, emotional and/or behavioural disorder, high anxiety levels, autism spectrum disorders).

Having a set task is an important part of each therapy session, in order for participants to feel a sense of achievement. It may be feeding animals, making a toy for an animal to play with, or assisting handlers with the training of one of the animals.
