An Introduction To Animal Therapy

15th June 11:00 to 13:00
Come and join Inspiring Animal Therapy and all their wonderful animals to hear more about the work they do and experience the therapeutic effect of animals for yourself!

This workshops gives you a deeper insight into animal therapy and offers you the chance to discover how animals can support mental health and promote positive wellbeing.

You’ll have the opportunity to hear more about the work of Inspiring Animal Therapy who offer a range of different therapeutic services including facilitating animal therapy in schools and delivering workshops focusing on emotional wellbeing.

Through animal therapy people can gain confidence and build trust as well as improving self esteem and happiness. Being with animals can help people practice empathy and develop authentic connections. Research shows that animal therapy is effective for treating a range of conditions like depression, anxiety, and/or trauma-related symptoms, as well as ADHD, autism, dissociative disorders, and other mental health diagnoses. Studies also show that animal therapy reduces cortisol, the stress hormone. In addition, spending time with animals lowers blood pressure and increases the release of oxytocin, a natural chemical that promotes feelings of positivity and connection.
