Transforming lives with Compassion, Connection & Creativity

ISSUES

In 2019 the World Health Organization statistics showed us that more women and children are experiencing Rape, Domestic Abuse, Self-Harming, Bullying, Addiction, Eating Disorders, Mental Abuse, Depression, Suicide and Anxiety.

WHAT WE DO

We provide Animal Assisted Therapy combined with Social & Emotional learning, delivered virtually and by community engagement to adults and children who are in need of connection, compassion & creativity.

EDUCATION

Our Programs provide enormous therapeutic benefits, boosting confidence, self esteem, helping those who may struggle with grief, loss, anxiety, trauma, communication problems, anger and low self-esteem.

OUR MISSION

 

To transform the quality of life for women, children & animals who need it most, particularly those unable to live at home due to trauma, abuse or other challenges.  We achieve this through Animal Assisted Therapy Programs delivered virtually and through community engagement with compassion, Connection & Creativity. 

WHY WE DO

 

With the ever increasing numbers of women and children who struggle with low self worth, lack of confidence, anxiety, depression, poor diet and illness, there is an urgent need to reconnect them to the beauty within themselves, to animals, nature, and how they see the world around them.

 

No Rain, No Rainbows, Animal Assisted Therapy Programs bring compassion, connection, reassurance and hugs to adults and children who may struggle with grief, loss, anxiety, history of trauma, communication problems, anger and low self-esteem. 

 

Research has shown that spending time with animals has enormous therapeutic benefits, boosting confidence, releases oxytocin, providing happy hormones, and helps to improve emotional and social skills.  The transformation in people is often instantaneous.  Miniature donkey's in particular are naturally calm animals, they have a slow and steady presence which gives a feeling of security and comfort to those feeling vulnerable or suffering from emotional difficulties.

 

Touching, grooming and cuddling animals is a great social facilitator, allowing people to relax and feel a sense of nurturing and connection. They bring compassion and reassurance to those to need it most, gentle, tender and understanding, gifting confidence and trust in a way that people often can’t, because people are so often damaged by people.  Animals offer so many gifts, the greatest gift of all being unconditional love.

 

“In an age where we are more connected than ever through social media, we are more disconnected than ever; depression being the no 1 dis-ease globally.  It is essential to recognize that a person’s health and well-being improves by prescribing connection with other living things, especially animals that offer so many gifts, the greatest gift of all being unconditional love."

Joanne

Lots of life changing ideas to put into place/practice.

Helping with my anxiety and depression and physical symptoms - slowly becoming more mobile.  The workshop for me was very enlightening. Thankyou for all your support.

Debbie

Even when challenges arrive, I feel a sense of calm rather than panic, and visualize a positive outcome.  No matter what your issues, situations, beliefs, concerns or fears, the workshops are run with love and passion and a energy which is infectious and inspirational.

Loria

A huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I felt it's time for me to come out of my shell and not allow others to dominate me my life. I am healing, I now have a peace about myself and I'm starting to think in a calm and positive way. This is a big step forwards for me.
