Therapeutic single setting sessions for children and adolescents

IMG 2804
Starting therapy, there is a taster meeting (initial consultation) to get to know each other. Afterwards the child visits about two units (depending on age and your wish with or without you). In these sessions with the horse, we try to picture the strengths and weaknesses. After this unbiased encounter, a detailed conversation about anamnesis and therapy concept with the parents takes place. The possible main emphasis of the therapy will be found together.
The children get a lot of energy and new impetus from the horses and us. Horses challenge humans to strike up a relationship without words. It is a new, non-verbal offering, stimulating all senses und opening doors for development steps. During therapy there may be times focusing uneasiness. To be confronted with this feeling and reappraise problems are important steps for a way to more quality of life. We may ask you as a parent to support your child through this process.
During a conversation about the course or conclusion of therapy, there is an exchange of experiences and –if necessary- a definition of new goals. We made the experience that long- term changes need time. We kindly ask you to communicate to your child that it will get this time.


The special feature of these therapy groups is the small number of four children at maximum, accompanied by a therapist. In this setting social interaction, mutual support, competing playfully against each other, spurring on each other and laughing together alternates with unique experiences and individual support. Especially for children with negative group experiences, there is a chance to experience new impetus, feel confirmed about oneself and manage challenges successfully in a safe and secured setting. 20170328 180425

For us, it is important -in accordance with the development of children from the small system of a family to social systems outside the family (kindergarten, school, friends,…)- to add, after the intense experience of the therapeutic single setting, a new experience of oneself in a social system. This setting offers the opportunity to transfer the positive experiences in therapy to daily life persistently.

The horses and their handling, the nonverbal communication and the relationship to human and animal are the centre of these groups. We experience nature here and now and face with courage and heart new challenges.

It is important for us to realize a setting where children with different needs can gather experiences together. We consider every child as unique and try to fulfil its special needs. We give serious thoughts to which children we take care of together in one group. We kindly ask all parents, to accept group colleagues -they have a hard history, too. The common respect for different –also “difficult”- humans, helps the children to integrate their own weaknesses better. 

The sessions of the integrative therapeutic group are kept in blocks of therapy. The cost are payed once for a block and the amount depends on the number of sessions. If sessions are not attended, they cannot be refunded.
