What degree or qualification do I need to become an animal assisted Therapist?

This really depends on what approach you wish to take and what is your current profession or practice.

If you are not already qualified and/or practicing then you will need to find a trainer that will take you on and provide a full foundation in therapeutic practices. These organisations will have their own defined prerequisites for beginning study. Prerequisites vary from trainer to trainer.

If you are already a qualified and practicing then you can find a trainer that will provide you with a professional qualification that extends your current practice. At Athena Herd our Certificate and Diploma have been specifically designed to embellish and build on existing qualifications.
