Animal Assisted Psychotherapy is a unique and special branch of psychotherapy that uses animals as part of the healing and connection process. Dogs, cats, and horses are the most common animals used, though the field is not restricted to those three. Especially in times of trauma or disconnection, many people find it easier to connect with non-human animals. Sometimes, traditional talk therapy is exactly not what the doctor ordered. Research shows that many people show reduced stress, fear and anxiety in the presence of comforting animals.
