The people who come on our courses have often fallen into a gap between NHS services and psychiatric care. Many of these people are surviving, but often stuck in depression, anxiety, or trauma, and there is little in the way of free and long lasting interventions that can help them.
We know that there are many people in our area who would absolutely benefit from coming on our course, we have never struggled to fill places and would like to be able to offer this opportunity to 4 more people locally who deserve a hand up. This course is not a short term fix to cheer people up, but is designed to give people skills, understanding and experiences that will last a lifetime.
We have written and deliver a course called Nurturing Resilience. We provide Equine Facilitated Learning, alongside psychological education, with an evidence based methodology. We test everything we do with clinical and qualitative evaluation, and we are seeing consistent and significant improvements in people's mental health and self belief, from the time they start the course to the time they finish. Our clients feedback is always positive.
The course consists of 12 hours of face to face time with us and the horses, as well as 3 hours of zoom sessions for 4 people, and represents very good value in comparison to other forms of therapy available. We donate all of the horse and venue costs, as well as much of the admin time needed to run In the Company of Horses to keep the costs as low as possible.
Any donation towards the cost of running a course are much appreciated by us, and hopefully by the participants.
