Clients typically come to us with self-esteem issues, a product of the challenges they face, and of the way their lives have evolved as consequence. Interacting with and being present with the horses takes the individual to another place, away from the feelings of judgement and stigma. The effects can be transformational in enabling them to take control of their lives. Our goal is to enable you to recognise your own skills and talents.
We combine horse-centred activities with open dialogue to help you develop self-awareness, and identify your own gifts and desires. We use that to work with you. We listen, find ways to communicate, and tailor our approach.
The sessions offer a conversation, response and reflective feedback which enables you to communicate with the horse in a way that the horse understands, through body language, energy and movement.
When we are working with the horses we become aware of “how others see us”. Horses respond to the energy and environment around them which makes them masters at identifying and reflecting the parts of us we don't know about or deny.
It works: we have seen our clients grow in confidence and take on greater responsibilities and control over their own lives. This gives them the opportunity to choose life paths that reflect their self-identified talents and ambitions.
These sessions are delivered by qualified allied health professionals, trauma-informed practitioners and counsellors.
