Animal Assisted Therapy Noah's ART

In this competitive world, we often feel alone, unhappy and disconnected. Disability of any kind can further alienate us.

Noah’s A.R.T. is a progressive innovative therapeutic approach that engages people through the development of human-animal bond. It may be of most benefit to people who struggle to engage in traditional talking therapies.

Within our sessions, clients find a therapeutic space to value themselves by nurturing and reconnecting with animals. In helping rescued animals, people with a disability can nurture another living creature and take a step back from their role as a “patient”.

This experience allows them to reflect on the importance of a healthy diet and personal hygiene; the importance of exercise and mental stimulation; friendships and communication. 

Welcome to Treat Yourself Tuesday from 10am -12- animal themed cafe, bring your own dog, cake and a brew - FREE (please consider a donation) - run by mental health clients to gain cafe experience. 

Therapy Thursday - more intense experience with contact with animals. £20 per hour - booking essential.
