A restorative equine-assisted personal development program for young women and girls aged 14-19yo.
Perfect for young women and girls who are are struggling with self-worth, and self-confidence.
Having a strong inner-critic can lead to developing unhelpful behaviour and thought patterns. This program is designed to teach an alternative way to view, and respond to, life’s challenges.
Throughout the program, the themes of Gratitude, Optimism, Resilience, Empathy, Mindfulness, Awareness, Responsibility, Kindness, Acceptance, Boundaries & Bravery, Liberty and Empowerment are explored.
All sessions are private sessions – group sessions/programs are not available.
Your program will run for 8 weeks at a time and on a day that suits both you and your program Mentor. Your program Mentor is a certified Equine Psychotherapy Institute (EPI) Practitioner.
The cost of the program is $80 per session (each session is approximately 1 hour). We have a number of full and part scholarships available for applicants experiencing financial hardship.
If you have NDIS funding, this program falls within the NDIS funding category of Innovative Community Participation. The program is not suitable for NDIS clients requiring therapeutic care, supervision or support.
We aim to run the program 4-6 times throughout the year.
