Equine Facilitated Learning in Leicestershire
We have worked with children from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, including individuals with diagnosed learning disabilities, mental health conditions and/or a history of trauma, abuse or bullying. The results have been consistently positive and, often, life changing.
Our clients report that the sessions taught them more about themselves than they could ever imagine. They also facilitate stronger, more positive relationships within the school environment, as well as at home.
The Resilience Programme
Teaching children the psychological skills they need to be resilient and manage stressors in an ever more stressful world. Resilience is the ability to cope with a crisis or setback and bounce back to pre-crisis status quickly, thereby protecting yourself from the potential negative effects of stressors.
The Resilience Programme is suitable for up to 10 for children from 11 to 18 and is designed to provide your children with the psychological skills they need to be resilient in the face of stress and to turn a crisis into a challenge to overcome or even an opportunity.
The ‘I Can Do’ Programme
Having good self-esteem and confidence are crucial for personal and profession progression in adulthood. Instilling and improving the psychological skills for sustaining confidence and self-esteem in children can help provide them with the tools they will need to attain their goals, whatever they may be, in the future, as well as helping maintain mental wellbeing.
Our I Can Do programme consists of 4, 1.5 hours sessions for children 7 to 18 years, providing a comprehensive psychological learning experience.
