Primarily, our programs are designed for anyone impacted by trauma, abuse or neglect. Trauma can result from a wide range of experiences including: bullying, loss or grief, being in out-of-home care, domestic violence, being involved in a serious accident, having a life-altering illness or condition, enduring physical or psychological abuse etc.
The key criteria is that clients have lost their self-worth and they need help to regain their self-worth, self-confidence and purpose so that they can see a pathway to a positive future.
Whilst Equine Assisted Therapy and Learning programs can be incredibly helpful for a wide range of people with a wide range of life challenges, our Mentors are specifically trained to support those impacted by trauma, abuse or neglect.
Our Mentors are not trained to support clients with high needs due to physical or intellectual disabilities – not are they trained to support clients that are not able to self-regulate their behaviour or emotions.
