Hunter Jones Animal Assisted Therapy & Learning

Education, training and employment - Health and social care

Supporting mental health and emotional well-being through animal-assisted therapy programmes. A large part of our focus is working with vulnerable and challenging young people who struggle to adapt or function in a mainstream school. 

However, our services are open to anyone of any age. We use animal interaction to assist individuals to overcome many challenges and personal issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, PTSD, social interaction and behavioural problems. Using solution-focused therapy, relational therapy and a person-centred approach we aim to reach a range of psychosocial treatment goals, such as:

  • Improving social skills
  • Improving memory and concentration
  • Improving co-operation
  • Reducing anti-social and challenging behaviour
  • Improving trust
  • Taking responsibility for yourself and others 
  • Creating an outward focus
  • increased independence and confidence
