Fylde MP launches new therapy centre


Fylde MP Mark Menzies has officially opened a groundbreaking centre which uses animals to provide counselling for vulnerable children and adults.

Mr Menzies joined sisters-in-law Nicki and Sally Livesey, at the opening of the Lancashire Counselling and Alternative Therapy Centre (LCAT) in Lewth Lane, Woodplumpton, which uses pets to help those who have not responded to more formal approaches.

People can be referred to LCAT by doctors, social services, schools and police and the staff have already worked with clients from around the country.

Following his visit, Mr Menzies said: “I was delighted to officially open the Lancashire Counselling and Alternative Therapy centre.

“During my visit to the facility I was extremely impressed with what I saw and the work which was being done by Sally and Nicki and their dedicated team.

“Using animals to help people who are struggling with a range of issues is quite brilliant and I am led to believe the staff at the centre have seen some staggering results from their work.”
