Animal Assisted Therapy

Home / Outreach Programme / Animal Assisted Therapy

Pet therapy or animal assisted therapy (AAT) is a proven and effective form of treatment that has been shown to improve a patient’s emotional and cognitive behaviour, along with noticeable improvements in social skills. It has long been shown that interaction with animals can help to reduce anxiety, traditionally dogs and cats have been used but we believe from first hand experience that exotic pet therapy can be just as beneficial.

We have worked alongside both BUPA and the huntercombe Group with positive results, repeat bookings and noticeable benefits for the patients.
