Emotional Support Sessions
for schools and other settings
I'm Eva and I provide Dogs For Children emotional support dogs specifically for educational settings. These dogs play a crucial role in supporting children, helping them settle and concentrate, while also assisting them in processing difficult emotions and developing empathy skills.
This concept originated several years ago when our own son was struggling with a health condition and our dog became his only source of comfort. Witnessing the positive impact it had on him, I decided to pursue further training in dog behaviour and gained qualifications in mindfulness, hypnotherapy, and elements of cognitive behavioural therapy. As a result, I am now an experienced dog trainer recognized by the industry, but also successful Life Coach and therapist.
In recent years, the role of emotional support animals in schools has gained significant attention. These animals, particularly dogs, have proven to be invaluable companions for children, providing them with the emotional support they need to navigate the challenges of school and life. By introducing dogs for children's emotional support at schools, educators are taking a proactive approach to address the emotional well-being of their students.
I am delighted to offer my services to more settings, starting from 2024.
With my extensive qualifications in animal-assisted therapy, first aid, art therapy, mindfulness for children, challenging behaviour, and advanced CBT, I am confident in providing exceptional care and support. Additionally, my dog Mazie, a well-behaved and groomed Cocker Spaniel with up-to-date vaccinations and regular treatments to prevent parasite infections, undergoes continuous training to ensure she is always at her best.
