Client reply- I'm happy with it. It helped me be more reflective. My anxiety before therapy was 10/10 after therapy 5/10. I had interactions with all the cats, which really helped calm my anxiety.

Pet Assist Animal Care ltd Trading as: Counselling by Jane and Creature Comforts Counselling
Friendly and professional
I would highly recommend Jayne's services to schools, families or individuals. Jayne is friendly, very easy to talk to and makes both adults and children feel at ease. My daughter enjoyed spending time with Jayne and her dogs. A fabulous service.
Cured from Worry/anxiety/stress...Alternative counselling using animals
I would recommend this counseling service as an alternative to traditional counselling & hypnosis (which I have tried unsuccessfully over the years). I like the approach of usng a choice of therapy 'pet' which allows you to relax and focus on the therapeutic presence of the pet, which assists in letting down your defences and helping you to be open up to deal with your problems.
I have found this the best way to explore my personal issues using CBT exercises to become conscious of triggers & the pattern of my thoughts. Understanding why it happens and thus breaking the cycle through implementing the suggestions given by Jane. It has been many months since my therapy and I am happy to report that I have not endured the problems since; which is/was the cycle of worry and anxiety suffered all my life! And if I do start to suffer again in the future, I now have the tools to stop it from taking control again.
Thank you very much for your help.

Warm, Comforting & Funny
A very lovely lady that enjoys a good laugh, and cares about the well-being of both the therapy animals and her clients.
Reasonable prices for very flexible meetings and times - plus the cutest little cats and dogs you've ever met. There's never a dull day, as they have lots of personality and often take part in the sessions themselves, settling down for a snuggle or playing.
I'm a very withdrawn person normally, but Jane has this uncanny ability to bring you out of your shell - and I'm so very grateful for it. Once a week, I get to lay out my feelings and worries to somebody who is knowledgeable about how these thoughts work and can be beaten, and it's wonderful.
I finally feel like I have a fighting chance against depression and anxiety.
