Our Animal Therapy Sessions encourage an appreciation of the natural world and promote a feeling of general wellbeing.
ZooLab Animal Therapy Sessions are a useful tool to promote mental wellbeing and can be used in a wide range of settings including care homes, children's hospices, prisons and pupil referral units, exam stress busters and staff wellbeing sessions.
Animal assisted therapy is recognised as an occupational therapy within psychology suggesting animals bring people together. Our presenting team find working in this area very rewarding - they can see the positive impact these encounters can have, making people's lives better. They are skilled at pitching the session to each audience which gives every ZooLab session a personal touch.
Residential & Dementia Care Homes
Animal Therapy In Action
'Becoming a dementia friend has encouraged me to ask the residents questions about the animals to draw on their past experiences. Cognitive stimulation is important for people with dementia'
