About Organisation

We envision a community in which all people have access to information and treatment that can help them improve their mental and emotional health by the therapy of animals and achieve harmony, promoting healthier families and communities.

Our mission

  • EDUCATE the public about mental health issues, treatment, the process of therapy.

  • EMPOWER all people’s wellness journeys through access to reliable, unbiased mental health information as well as trained mental health professionals.

  • CHALLENGE the myths, stereotypes, and stigmas that can surround mental health issues and treatment and prevent people from getting help.

  • PROMOTE the mental and emotional health of individuals and families in Dorset by providing professional, research-supported Animal Assisted and Equine Therapy with the addition of rescued animals. We also aim to increase the knowledge and ethical practice of therapy with animals by links with the local communities.

  • The Ranch values making a positive impact of all forms of life, including human, animal and nature through promoting the use of animal/equine therapy

The Ranch only includes animals in its work that are positively enhanced by that work; each animal has a choice about its participation. The Ranch values teaching through example the mutual benefits of the human-animal bond. The Ranch values working as much as possible with each client’s strengths and building on those.
