Family Mentoring funding application

Family Mentoring funding application

We are so excited to announce that we have received funding for 8 families to receive a 50% discount to the cost of a 9 week group programme with us.

This is an incredible opportunity for you and your child to meet new people and build lasting relationships whilst receiving support with communication, behaviours that pose challenges, beliefs systems that are blocking your harmony as a family and so much more.

This programme is designed to challenge current thinking patterns and behaviours and support the person in changing these. We believe that working together to raise a person’s awareness, can have an amazing impact on their life and then will cause a ripple effect that influences those around them. By working with the horses, we can create real life scenarios and support everyone in how they currently cope with these, to then illicit change in their responses. This programme can provide everyone with a reassuring structure, in an environment which focuses on enabling skills and providing positive opportunities for their development, away from the constraints of a classroom.
