Today, teens are under more pressure than ever. From keeping up with work, school, and family obligations to the media’s assaults on body image, difficult relationships, and even depression issues – stress seems to come from all angles.
Teenage Empowerment sessions can make a real difference to teens searching for themselves amid the chaos.
Horses are powerful beings, and they are also beautiful and wise. Working closely with them and allowing them to provide nonjudgmental feedback on teens’ behaviours and attitudes can actually help teens to become aware of their beliefs about themselves and the world, their reactions and behaviours, and the habits they formed as a result.
It’s easy to see how teens could feel out of control in their own lives, compounding the effects of all the other stressors they endure. But often, after working with the horses, teens find that they have natural abilities and strengths they were not aware they possessed. They can then use that newfound empowerment to regain agency in their lives and feel more relaxed, confident, and positive about their way forward in their exciting journey ahead.
The Teenage Empowerment sessions run over six weeks and each session lasts 90 mins and involves working with the horses on the ground, learning new life skills, practicing mindfulness and stress reduction techniques, and much more. Individual needs and goals are taken into account when placing participants, and we ensure that teens are in a group that is age appropriate and gender-specific, if requested.
If you can’t make it to the group or are unsure about how a group session might fit your needs, try a one-on-one session, and we can talk about the next Teenage Empowerment opportunity.
Dates and session times will be coordinated at time of booking. These sessions are limited to 4 participants and the 90-minute sessions are held for 6 weeks at the Tallebudgera Valley facility. The cost is $360.00 per teen and is payable in full at time of booking.
