ABOUT THE WESSEX CENTRE
The Wessex Centre was developed out of a firm belief in the powerful and dynamic, therapeutic and learning potential that horses bring through their honesty and sensitivity, enabling them to 'mirror' human pysche and behaviour. This is utilised and used to unlock hidden strengths and develop the skills and abilities of individuals.
At the Wessex Centre our team of professionals offer both organisations and individuals the opportunity to become part of a unique combination of multi model corporate training and equine assisted development. This is achieved by identifying individual working styles and team performance against interpersonal relationships with horses as the experiential medium. The Centre offers Corporate Resources through Team Building, Leadership Development and Problem Solving workshops. Click here for more information.
Individual Learning and Therapy
The Wessex Centre offers Equine Assisted Learning and Therapy to varied specific client groups of both adults and children, couples and families. The work with the horses all takes place on the ground; there is no riding, and is closely supervised by an equine specialist, alongside the professionals who work principally on the clients needs. We liaise closely with clients, carers and relevant professionals to inform our planning and optimise our outcomes.
We provide individually tailored programmes for each client's/group's needs. We routinely monitor and assess progress and have a flexible approach enabling us to adapt our programme to optimise it's impact and success.
