Children's Phobia Therapy For Animal Fears

Children’s Therapy For Ages 8 to 15:

Due to high demand, Creature Courage is now offering children’s phobia therapy for children between 8 and 15. We have adapted our animal phobia workshop to cater to younger minds. The therapy is designed for a full day (9:40am to 6pm), although this may be altered dependent upon the age of the child and their capacity to focus. All our therapy sessions are adjusted for a completely tailored service.

As in our adult sessions, children will learn techniques to not only overcome their animal phobia, but also improve overall mental health. This will give your child a great advantage as they grow into adulthood to manage fear and anxiety in more healthy ways.

A parent must accompany any child attending our children’s phobia therapy.  If a parent also has a phobia it is recommended that they get their own treatment beforehand, to allow the child to receive the maximum benefit from the animal phobia therapy.

Unfortunately, if parents are still modelling fearful behaviour, even in a slight way, the phobia will be relearned quickly.

The price for our children’s phobia therapy is £349 per child for a day workshop. If a child can only do shorter sessions, we can break the session down into two sessions for £50 extra, totalling £399.

Please note some therapy animals might incur an additional £40, depending on availability. However this is rare as we are usually able to provide most animals without an additional cost.

    Creative Animal Exposure Workshops for Ages 5 to 7: 

    For children ages 5 to 7 we cannot treat their animal phobia with our full children’s phobia therapy module. However, we do have a special educational creative and exposure session for this age group. Children will learn and appreciate the animal they are afraid of through gentle exposure to this animal. This is done in a fun and creative way. The aim is to help children at this age to start to overcome the fears they might have around the trigger animal and learn to appreciate animals differently. A parent must be present at all times.

    The price for our children’s phobia therapy in this age range is £150 per child for a 2 hour session. A max of three children can book at the same time. Please note some therapy animals might costs an additional £40 depending on availability. However this is rare as we are usually able to provide most animals without an additional cost.

    You can contact us or call 0800 970 4417 to discuss your needs and to book a session. Creature Courage is the best option for your child to overcome their struggles with an animal phobia!
