Some of our Social Workers/Psychotherapists can facilitate canine-assisted counselling. With the help of Leonard, the French Bulldog, the Social Worker/Psychotherapist can incorporate him into a talk or play counselling sessions. Working with Leonard increases your opportunity to track behaviours and reflect feelings in session.
The simple act of being with and petting Leonard in your counselling sessions releases an automatic relaxation response. This can be beneficial, especially if you live with post-traumatic stress disorder and experience triggers that leave you feeling anxious. Leonard can help provide you comfort, increase mental stimulation, and provide a happy distraction to discussing difficult situations.
This is not a good option if you do not like dogs.
This will help you on your road to recovery for you to better manage your mental health distress.
