At Rainbow Horses we support our learners to explore their interests and process their feelings through a wide range of activities. These offer opportunities for: self-regulating through sensory input; non-verbal processing of difficult emotions and experiences through play and art; and developing self-worth through achieving meaningful self-selected and intrinsically motivated experiences of success. Psychoeducation is given where appropriate to help our young people understand how their brain works and explore strategies that may help. 

 

 

We employ active listening skills and maintain an attitude of unconditional positive regard towards our learners, whilst maintaining boundaries around safety and respect for others. We also model this in our relationship with other people and with our animals, helping them to feel that their thoughts and feelings are respected.
