Welcome to HumAnima
Welcome to HumAnima CIC – a West Midlands based social enterprise providing a professional humanistic counselling and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) service to individuals and organisations.
Counselling provides people with an opportunity, a space, within which they can explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions in a safe and trusting environment. By providing support and a suitable environment HumAnima CIC’s clients are invited to explore and address any issues, challenges or concerns they would like to. Counselling can help with a wide variety of concerns which might include anger, bereavement, depression, anxiety, issues surrounding faith, sexuality, domestic violence, debt, drug misuse and stress.
HumAnima CIC’s uniqueness comes in its ability to provide you with the choice of an additional approach to your counselling experience – in the form of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). In HumAnima CIC’s case this technique will mainly involve a trained and temperament assessed Therapy Dog being present in the room during the counselling session. This has already been reported in several papers as being sufficient to reduce anxiety, increase therapeutic rapport thus contributing towards the client’s positive therapeutic progress.
It is important to point out that different approaches suit different people. Where one approach may work for one person, it may not for another. As a result of this, I may combine the use of the approaches I have developed in order to tailor it to the individual and suit his or her needs.
HumAnima CIC has aimed to make counselling sessions as affordable as possible and will take into account an individual’s financial circumstances to accommodate where possible.
