Pet Therapy Session - Phoenix House Tuesday 28th January 2020 at 10am

We are holding a pet therapy session at Phoenix House on Tuesday 28th January 2020 at 10am. 

We hope this to be the first of many for this year 

Come along and see our beautiful dogs, they love to meet new people and be made a fuss of!

Animal-assisted therapy improves customers’ mental, physical, social and emotional functioning with the aid of animals. Much more than simply spending time with an animal, animal-assisted therapies can include walking, brushing, petting and caring for an animal, as well as processing the experience of trying to achieve a given task.
There is a strong bond between animals and people. Animals are accepting, non-threatening and non-judgemental, making it easier for people to open up. Animal therapy can release endorphins that produce a calming effect. This can help alleviate pain, reduce stress and improve a person’s overall psychological state. Animal Therapy is an ideal way for customers who may be less mobile to be able to interact with animals without having to care for them full-time.

Please call Bex on 01795 422200 to book onto the session, alternatively if you are unable to attend, we can arrange to bring the therapy dogs to visit you in your own home if you wish
