Alternative Educational and Therapeutic Provision
At ChangeForLife we offer an alternative and therapeutic provision for children who struggle in mainstream schooling. This includes children who are home educated, those with SEN and children who are in mainstream school but require additional provision to encourage greater learning. Through offering work with horses as well as exploration of the woodland area on site, we are sure to find ways of engaging any child.
We can offer group work sessions, self esteem, anxiety management, anger management, social skills among others. Check out our services page for more information on what we offer.
Animal Assisted Therapy
Most people recognise the therapeutic value of animals in helping to soothe stress, build relationships and help with self esteem. At ChangeForLife, the goal of Animal Assisted Therapy is for the improvement of a child’s social, emotional, and/ or cognitive functioning. Animals can increase motivation and increase therapeutic effectiveness for participants. We use a selection of miniature ponies who display a range of different behaviours that help the participant gain resilience and self esteem, while learning about the ponies, children learn about themselves.
