Groups and Workshops
“Working in groups helps to normalise what you are experiencing whilst providing the opportunity to gain experience from others and equally to help others”

CBT Group

Groups of 4 young people come together to talk about their struggles and learn ways to manage their mental health whilst learning from each other, helping each other.

EFP Group

Providing therapy together with horses and nature can be powerful in helping people manage their mental health. Groups of 4 young people will work together indoors and outdoors with the horses.
This is an amazing and different way of approaching therapy and it can also be fun!

There are many benefits to working in groups. These include:

Leading to

Normalise how you are feeling

Becoming self-aware

And with the horses

Becoming self-aware is fundamental to good mental health; without this nothing can change.

In this 2-hour workshop I will be assisted by my horses to teach young people what is going on for them in their minds and bodies and to make sense and manage what they notice.

The goals are:

  • For you to understand yourself better. How your body and mind work together and give you information.
  • Recognise when your body is telling you something.
  • Ability to make sense of it.
  • Learn to think about what you are thinking about.
  • Begin to question what is going on.

Other workshops are available following on from Becoming Self-Aware.

These are to provide an understanding of what you are experiencing and to teach skills to help you manage the symptoms.
