It is believed that horses have millions or billions more mirror neurons than people do, making them experts at understanding nonverbal communication. All those mirror neurons enable horses to empathize even more than people do. Thus, horses can help reflect our human emotion without judgement or criticism, making them perfect therapy partners.
In the Soul Connect program, children/youth will gain insight into their own behaviour and emotions through their interactions with the horses. Over the course of the program, we will dive into different aspects of equine behaviour and use that knowledge and experience to strengthen important life skills for children and youth including communication skills, social skills, executive functioning skills, and emotional regulation skills.
Multiple programs are offered, including group sessions (3 participants in each grouping maximum), Life-Skills Building groups, private and semi-private sessions. The Soul Connect program starts with an individualized intake appointment to identify your child’s strengths and areas of challenge and to develop clear and specific goals for the program.
