About the Author

Dale Preece-Kelly is an Animal Assisted Therapy Practitioner who is regarded worldwide as a pioneer in the discipline of animal assisted therapy. He has worked extensively in this field since 2010, almost exclusively within the mental health sector. Here, he has honed his unique skills for helping rescued animals to overcome their issues, animals who then help those with psychiatric disorders to overcome their own issues. Dale's work is unique in regard to the fact that his non-human colleagues are highly diverse, and he works with a range of exotic animals, including skunks, chinchillas, African pygmy hedgehogs, tortoises, lizards, snakes, amphibians, and even insects, as well as dogs and rabbits. All of these creatures are Dale's own companion animals, who live with him at home.


The centre contains some photos of the animals etc featured themselves and the whole book involves you so you just have to keep reading from cover to cover.

Ten animals - nine non-humans and one human - take you on ten journeys, where, in each case, and animal in need of rescue overcomes their issues and goes on to help people overcome theirs. Written by Dale Preece-Kelly, and animal assisted therapy practitioner, this book is his own personal experiences - describing how he was rescued by his animal and how the creatures he has resumed have become first class therapy animals. The book features a unique range of species, some never previously used in a therapeutic environment, showing how each species bring its own benefits to a therapy session. With a forward from respected Animal Geographer Dr Daniel Allen, who has long supported Dale's work, the book also gives advice on hoe to select and 'train' a therapy animal, whet the benefits are of working with different animals, and how the benefits of each species differ. This book is indeed a fascinating insight into the field of animal-assisted therapy. - Dogs & Pups.
