Generate and Grow Connection
EFW and Nature Program for Children and Youth
Sasha Routley BA CYC; MA CYC, RCC; & Kerry Moon BA CYC MA RCC work in our youth program and offer counselling sessions to children, youth and young adults. Kerry and Sasha are experienced in supporting young people with a range of different challenges. They are skilled in our Equine Facilitated Wellness (EFW) approach that fosters healing connections with self, others and the environment. Both are Registered Clinical Counsellors; extended medical benefits may apply.
The sessions are conducted outside in nature and with horses. This outside focus has been very helpful during Covid and is also wonderful for children and youth who do not feel comfortable in an office or talk focused setting.
Our activity based program draws on the learnings that come from interactions with animals, nature and art to empower children and youth. It may be appropriate if your child is struggling with:
- Social challenges
- Self esteem issues
- High sensitivity
- Life transition
Sensitively designed experiences with horses and nature experiences will introduce the child to:
- Healthy relationship
- Healthy boundaries
- Follow through
It is recommended that sessions be arranged in blocks of six or more.
