Bouncing around scares him! If I am aggressive, he will be aggressive back, if I am calm, he can be calm back.
I love going to see them, [the horses] they make me feel happy and calm.
It has been very beneficial for ***** to attend the ‘Building Connections’ programme. He has lost many of his worries and is more confident in himself. ***** has returned from each session in a relaxed and calm manner and is keen to explain what he has done and is motivated to get on with his lessons in school. He is aware of how the horses feel and how it is important to be calm and patient with them.
It’s made me feel much calmer… to step back & listen to others.
It has helped me to become more patient & assertive.
I feel like a completely different person and ecstatic about the future.
“I think **** has learnt the importance of safety. Also, how remaining calm is more positive… His behaviour has improved and the odd time he has been challenging, he has been able to turn it around, resulting in positive behaviour.”
“I have enjoyed having fun with the horses and learnt how to stay safe.”
I have realized I undermine myself, this day has been more helpful than any self help books!
Thank you for a great experience. “Horse Whispering” a superb way to develop emotional intelligence.
