We are excited to introduce you to our therapy dog, Obi. Our clinic utilises the benefits of animal-assisted therapy (AAT) to children with Selective Mutism who are receiving treatment in our Sydney office.
Obi, our toy cavoodle and dedicated therapy dog, plays a crucial role in enhancing individual therapy sessions. Animal-assisted therapy involves building a unique bond through interaction and play, offering a flexible and customisable approach suitable for individuals of all ages dealing with various challenges such as disabilities, mental illnesses, autism spectrum disorders, and Selective Mutism.
At the Selective Mutism Clinic, we believe in the transformative power of animal interaction. Engaging with Obi provides a sense of peace, purpose, companionship, and relaxation. Advocates of animal-assisted therapy emphasise its positive impact on self-worth, self-esteem, and trust development. Join us in unlocking the therapeutic potential of our furry companion, Obi, as we strive to create a nurturing environment for children seeking support for Selective Mutism.
