Our Impact Case Studies: Schools Q3 Academy - Tipton Q3 Academy, based in Tipton undertook the HugglePetsCIC Animal Assisted Intervention Programmes to help improve the wellbeing of their pupils. Having chosen the 'Building Confidence, Self Esteem and Resilience & Coping with Self Harm and Difficult Thoughts' six week programme for their pupils, they noticed a considerable difference in the moods, behaviours and overall wellbeing of the children within a couple of weeks of attending our sessions. Meet Tylah Tylah was referred to our programme via the school as she was struggling with Anxiety, and was recommended to attend our Coping with Self Harm and Difficult Thoughts programme following conversations with school. Here is the feedback from Tylah himself about the programme and the HugglePetsCIC Therapist. I have enjoyed holding the animals and talking about ways to calm down. I have learnt that no matter what you can talk to people. Tylah, aged 12 Feedback from the Therapist include: Tylah has been the heart and soul of this group. His humour, coupled with his self awareness has made peers both laugh and open up to talk about some difficult feelings. Tylah's honesty in group work has set a great example and invitation for others to do the same. Tylah has been an absolute pleasure to have on the programme and is a real credit to the academy. Therapist Luke, with Barbara the Bearded Dragon Maddison, with Gus the Guinea Pig Tiffany, with Barbara the Bearded Dragon Arun, with Ginger the Rabbit Irin, with Barbara the Bearded Dragon Chanel, with Lillie the Leopard Geko Meet Logan Logan was referred to our programme via the school as he was struggling with anxiety, and was recommended to attend our Building Confidence, Self Esteem and Resilience programme, to encourage personal development to make new friends. Here is the feedback from the HugglePetsCIC Therapist. Feedback from the Therapist include: Logan participated as much as he felt comfortable with both group and animal work. Up until week 6 Logan was supported by our SEN Activities Coordinator and he would always try to be involved when the animals were out. On week 6 Logan showed so much improvement, actively taking part in the group and actually held 2 animals, which really blew us all away. Logan appeared to be proud of himself too. Therapist We are pleased to have been part of these positive changes with young people who are struggling with their mental health.
