Dare to Live -- Equine Facilitated Therapy - www.daretolive.me

Transition Trauma to True Potential

Dare to Live is a groundbreaking life skills programme that supports individuals overcome the effects of trauma, depression or anxiety. The programme offers valuable tools for participants in stabilisation, self-awareness and interpersonal interactions, giving them confidence to move forward with their lives.

Dare to Live is an effective methodology incorporating psychological and experiential learning experiences. Horses are an integral part of the programme as they naturally facilitate participants to gain new insights and strategies for successful communication and relationship building, through facilitated interactions which feel safe.

How does Equine Facilitation work?
Horses are highly sensitive to humans' intentions and feelings and are naturally able to help participants understand how their actions or behaviours appear to others. As participants begin to explore positive ways of interacting with the horses they attain real-time feedback which is easily translated to gain important insights for their human interactions. Transformational change naturally occurs enabling them to live a more balanced, fulfilled life and to successfully build healthy relationships in the future.

How to Take Part?
We accept clients with symptoms of PTSD, depression and anxiety or in need of general support as a consequence of natural disaster, interpersonal or combat related trauma. We consider all civilian self-referred clients, as well as those referred via the NHS or other agencies.

Dare to Live: Military Programmes

Many service men and women face their greatest fight for survival during the process of integrating back into civilian life. Dare to Live aims to make a difference by giving serving and ex-service personnel the tools to help them successfully return by supporting the transition process in all aspects -- from family to the wider community and workplace. Dare to Live facilitator teams include ex-service personnel who offer mentorship and post-programme support which our clients find invaluable.
