Offering hope through connection with horses – a team approach to changing lives

Returning to normal life after Covid-19 might seem daunting. Living with uncertainty about the future can cause fear and anxiety. Having to keep positive even when feeling overwhelmed can take its toll. Past experiences that have impacted on our mental health and wellbeing can leave a residue that continues to affect our moods, sleep and relationships.

Making time for yourself is important to help you reevaluate a situation or problem. We can offer you the space to be you. In a safe and supportive environment, we can help you to see the bigger picture and find your own solutions for moving forward. Take the time and space to reconnect to you.

Children & Young People

Children show their stress through behaviours that are often hard to make sense of. Aggression and defiance can end up in repeated arguments with no solution. At Changeways we offer psychotherapy for adults, families, children and adolescents.

Sessions are held weekly or fortnightly and last for up to one hour. Longer sessions are available. The Eagala Model involves no riding and is ground-based. It does not require you to have any previous experience with horses.

Parents

Parents may be left feeling hopeless and not knowing where to turn. Children & young people who are struggling with anxiety or depression may be withdrawing, spending more time in their rooms and shutting themselves off from the world. Your child may be experiencing difficulties managing change, experiencing bullying at school or a significant life event such as divorce. You are on the receiving end of their anger and frustration and punishment is not working.

We can offer a supportive space to reflect, make sense of and find different solutions to supporting your son or daughter.
