Animal Therapy Anyone?

Nurture Dogs CIC is a Community Interest Company that aims to bring the pleasure and therapeutic value of the humananimal bond to as many people as possible.

Combine animal contact and activities with animals with the therapeutic philosophy of Occupational Therapy. Dogs is an organisation that majors on empowering people, providing choices and opportunities where perhaps these do not currently exist.

They state “Other services will be offered as we progress. In each area we can work with individuals or groups using our own assessment tools or with those who already have set goals” services include:

  • Dedham Community Farm (for therapy and work experience)
  • Dogs in the community such as specialist hospitals, care homes, learning difficulties homes and much more.

Our services range from full OT assessment and evaluation to individual/group animal assisted programmes.

A) Individual Occupational Therapy

This service is led by Dave De’ath who is a qualified occupational therapist. We have several Occupational Therapists working with us as well as students. This will involve an OT assessment and evaluation.

B) Individual animal assisted therapy

One to one sessions specifically tailored to meet your individual goals. (Can be combined with OT assessment on request)

C) Group animal assisted therapy

A programme designed for a group of clients who may have similar needs. Each individual may set their own goals within the group objectives or they may be set for them.

(Can be combined with OT assessment on request).
