It can be a challenge to describe in words what this therapy is about. The best way to discover how it works is to experience it and to observe how your body responds.
PACT has stringent membership criteria, which graduates of its accredited trainings fulfil.
There is an ancient longing wired in us as infants to be seen, to be felt, and to have our surging, somatic-emotional world validated by another.
The nature of the training naturally supports an inner exploration for all participants - students, assistants and tutors, and this brings with it the potential for issues to surface.
What a gift it is to be able to use our therapeutic skills to support sick, injured, and traumatised animals. There is much learning available within that gift which can educate us on the finer points of working with people.
