Animals & Therapy
Pumpkin - Kini Harry Hopper Eevee Yingy
I would like to introduce to you Pumpkin (Kini for short) and Harry Hopper, Ying, Eevee and Sampson to my counselling practice.
Pumpkin and Harry are mini lop rabbits who for the are much loved therapy bunnies. They have been present in some sessions offering lots of relaxation for fun for those who are anxious. They have been trained and enjoy travelling to meet others too in different settings.
Sampson and Eevee are still young and still in training. Both are already relaxed and enjoying all the cuddles, strokes and fun they have.
Unfortunately Sampson broke his foot attempting to jump from his cage and therefore is undergoing lots of treatment at the moment making himself well known at the local vet (who all adore him). He is still as cheeky but cuddly as before and its looking positive so far for his recovery.
Ying is a 4 year old Pug. She unfortunately has had a tough start in life and after lots of operations she simply enjoys sitting for strokes and ... well... sleeping! Her best hobby is to sleep, but can still make others smile with her snoring.
Animal-assisted therapy is still undergoing research but the results already show that animals are good for our well-being.
Animals including dogs, rabbits, horses and others are already involved in the world of psychology. They have great understanding towards emotions as they are similar to our own..
Its also been shown that animals can offer relaxation, calmness and help with anxiety. Some children have shared that stroking their fur and feeling them near helps them to feel less intense and worried.
Pumpkin and Harry will both be registered therapy rabbits once their training has fully completed.
All bunnies live indoors with me and are surrounded with children, and other animals.
If for any reason they do enjoy days off so are not always present for those who don't feel comfortable with their presence.
Please stay updated with regular updates that will be frequently added to the page.
If you have any questions please do email or message me and I will be happy to help anyway I can...
Thank you, from Pumpkin, Harry, Sampson, Eevee, Yingy and I :)
