At SKC Therapy, we believe that everyone needs to find that emotional connection and sometimes people find it hard to find that connection, support and confidant when it's person to person, but with animals, they bring a new level of emotional connection, allowing a empathic bond and connection without judgement or prejudice. This has the ability to allow people to open up, lower their anxiety barriers and seek solace in the love an animal can give and receive. It's well described that animals can bring happiness, and wellness, allowing people to cope with situations much better, open up more and feel more supported. Animals, especially dogs have an almost natural ability (like a sixth sense) to detect when a person is feeling upset or down and they can gravitate to that person and just want to help them. Animal Assisted therapy is another service that I offer and it's a very successful process in supporting positive mental health
Before we start with any Animal Assisted Therapy sessions, part of full sessions, we'll go through and detail any issues, allergies etc before hand as part of the introduction, and describe how to handle the animal in a safe and secure manner for both the welfare of the animal and that of the person. We shall introduce the animal and the person in a controlled and safe manner and continuously monitor progress through your sessions.

Mia is my Beautiful Rottweiler puppy. She still in training, so she's not available for sessions work just yet although my dog loving client's do love to say hello to her after their sessions. She's a gentle girl with a sweet nature who loves to give and receive attention and love.
