[Reptile Handling: Building Confidence, Self-Esteem & Improving Personal Health & Mental Health]Meet The Beasts provides a safe environment in which people can encounter these beautiful animals up-close to be empowered, overcome their fears, build their confidence or even enhance concentration & raise mood.

Working with Mental Health & Rehabilitation Practitioners, we help to facilitate increased  communication, sense of well-being & sense of achievement, plus group bonding, using snake & reptile handling & minibeast encounters. 

Our wide range of reptiles (snake & lizards) in all sizes (from small to large) allows for a 'good fit' with most patients/service users.


[Meet the Beasts - Testimonial from Mental Health Support Provider Hospital]"The event was a huge success and enjoyed by all. Feedback from service users included, "It was great!", "I really enjoyed it" and "When can we do it again?" ... The hospital will be inviting Stuart back in the New Year"

Cygnet Hospital, Stevenage, Herts


We work in group settings & one-to-one, supporting practitioners (NHS or Private). We are not practitioners ourselves but having worked for 18 years in clinical trials we understand patient confidentiality & we have a good understanding of illnesses such as depression, where Animal Assisted Therapy using snakes can have real benefits.


We've helped many people to:

[Tick] Overcome their fears
[Tick] Increase in confidence & take on new challenges in their jobs & wider life
[Tick] Improve their relationships & interpersonal skills
[Tick] Enhance communication & enthusiasm

We have also helped people start to open-up new channels of communication as they are encouraged & motivated to share their achievements with others.
