Four-Legged Therapy

How fur, scales and feathers can make life worth living

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

Discover the joys of unconditional love and how the best lessons can come from a pet.

A WORDLESS LISTENER, A REASON TO GO OUTSIDE, AN INTENSE SURGE OF JOY...

What healthy habits can we learn from our fluffy, scaly and, let's face it, stinky companions? Is it just the companionship and love or is there more to it?

Discover the myriad ways in which our pets and other animals can help us feel more present and connected in our lives, how they literally save lives and also make life more worth living. From the 'hensioners' who look after ex-battery chickens to 'goat club', dogs who listen to children learning to read and Mitzpah the collie who just knows how to make people smile. There is a world of therapy out there, waiting to sit on your lap.

Biographical Notes

Department Store for the Mind is the exciting new creative venture by Sophie Howarth, co-founder of the School of Life. It is a place to explore the world inside your head: a vast and unique terrain of thoughts, ideas, emotions and memories.

Each book offers stories and ideas about creating daily habits that are kind to the mind, whether through our connection with nature, our creativity or everyday tasks, or simply knowing and feeling more accepting of ourselves. The books stretch the mind and soul, so that we may colour outside of the lines, experience the moments of wonder that are right there in front of us and occasionally venture out of our safe harbours.
