Animal therapies

As an outdoor environment the Farm can aid in the relief of stress and anxiety, whilst also refocusing the mind.  Interacting with animals within a broad range of tasks can facilitate the increased concentration, mental wellbeing and physical health.  The sessions are focused within the field of animal care.

Music and Multimedia

The studio setting provides a creative environment that encourages the expression of feelings and emotions through the medium of music and multimedia. From this, self-esteem and trust is developed naturally and the confidence to reflect on their personal circumstances increases.

Wellbeing

This intervention makes use of our Independent Living Centre which has a fully equipped kitchen with an additional ‘anatomy themed’ work space. The Centre environment encourages the exploration of a young person’s current needs and provides a space for them to discern solutions.

Woodlands

The working environment provides physical development through green exercise activity.   These sessions are aimed at Woodland Management including activity such as coppicing, tree felling and path maintenance. Confidence levels are enhanced through task achievement whilst improving hand eye co-ordination and motor skill development.
