Interested in how the human-animal bond could support your clients?

We offer a unique two day course which encourages you to consider how you can introduce animals into your therapeutic practice.

On the first day, we explore theory, challenge your perceptions of "therapy animals" and allow you to get first hand experience with our therapy team.

With a break in between the training days, you have a chance to really digest the contents of day one. We encourage you to ask us to cover specific topics on the second day. We can then design the second day around your questions and areas of interest to tailor the session to your needs (depending on how many issues raised per person!)

Vegan or vegetarian lunch is provided on both days

Course costs £300 with £30 reserving your place (please use PayPal button)

Comments from course participants

"I enjoyed being surrounded by all the AAT animals during the entire day. They were relaxing and made the course special and this gave the course the WOW factor for me" Course participant (counselor) 29th Aug 2018

"Affordable & good value for money" Course participant (Counselor)29th Aug 2018

"I enjoyed all of the course but especially working with the dogs and rats. The food was good too!" Course participant (counselor) 29th Aug 2018

"The practical was really important. The interaction with the animals made me see that animals can help in many different ways, not only holding them, but letting them be can be actually interesting as well" Course participant (Animal behaviour PHD student) 29th Aug 2018
