I firmly believe that children’s mental wellness is of paramount importance. In the fast-paced world we live in, children are often left in the dust of the career, school, after hour programs, intersection sport and whatever other ways of staying busy, bandwagon, leaving many of them feeling like they can’t measure up, that no one is listening or care about them. This is why I am making it my mission to provide seven Canadian children in need, access to no conventional mental health supporting treatment through Equine Assisted Therapy, before the end of 2018.
Below are the two wonderful Equine Assisted Therapists I will be partnering with to provide this much-needed service.
Clearview Counselling Services and Equine Centre
Meet Denise, the founder and director of Clearview Counselling Services and Equine Centre. Denise is a Registered Psychotherapist as well as a Certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapist with EAGALA (the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association). She is also a Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Member with AAMFT (American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy).
Hidden Cedar Stables
And here is Dana, a certified equine facilitated psychotherapist and the founder of Hidden Cedar Stables. Her privately owned hobby farm provides a program for children and youth in foster care. She is passionate about the healing power of horses and has over a decade of diverse experiences within the field of animal-assisted therapy. Her education, research, and beliefs have led her to open True Connections Equine Assisted Therapy Services where she offers private, individual and group equine-assisted therapy.
So, why own one of my art pieces? Simple, YOU will be making a difference in a child’s life.
