Animals are non-judgemental and give unconditional love.

Some benefits of therapeutic work with animals are:

  • Encourages nurturing traits

  • Combats loneliness’ and encourages social integration

  • Promotes a sense of responsibility and empathy with others

  • Can encourage mobility

  • Promotes self-compassion, independence and self-confidence

  • Working with animals can provide a catalyst for change and help people through transitional life changes

  • Helps people face challenges and supports personal growth
