Hounds Connect provides a therapy for dog owners, Anubis Therapy. Anubis Therapy is a counselling service developed to help you improve your relationship with your dog, and also learn more about yourself..
I developed my therapy based on my own needs as a dog owner who was not happy with her relationship with her dogs. I was always being told by dog trainers, or reading in books, that 'Its never about the dog'. They would knowingly declare the problems with dog ownership were about the owner.
Instinctively I felt that this was probably true. But I didn't know what to do about it. It seemed you either had a way with dogs, or you didn't. I needed a therapy for dog owners!
From that starting point I started to get really interested with what was going on between my own dogs and myself. I spend a lot of time working with my dogs. I spend a lot of time on personal development work, understanding more about myself. And I spend a lot of time making connections between the two. I found it fascinating when I started to observe myself alongside my dogs' behaviour. The development of Anubis Therapy has been a result of that work.
Anubis Therapy is a 'person-centred' listening service (based on the model by Carl Rogers), which helps people improve their relationship with their dog and understand more about themselves.
I believe that an important role that our dogs play in our society today is in helping us to improve our understanding of ourselves. Anubis Therapy helps us in that work
