Come meet Max, our resident therapy dog
Men’s health MATTERS - and in November 2018 we celebrate Movember – a period of increased awareness for men’s health issues.
We blokes can be silent on some of the issues we face in modern life, but it’s important to pay attention to what’s going on for us physically, mentally, and socially.
Hands up if you have ever been bullied?
At Live Better Psychology we are proud to have our very own resident therapy dog, Max. Max is a 7 month old Groodle, who has recently undergone specialist training at Lead the Way Canine and Equine Institute in Macclesfield, Victoria, so that he can assist our clients with his warmth, friendliness, and attunement to others’ feelings.
When I think of bullying, my mind typically jumps to images of a kid at school being picked on or workplace bullying. However, bullying does not only occur at school and work; a person can be bullied within their family too. I have met many clients who have been badly affected as a result of family bullying and being excluded from their family of origin.
