Who we are and what we do

Our programmes

Our programmes create the opportunity for personal, emotional and relational learning insights that ultimately enable people to process and resolve their difficulties, form better relationships with others, and reach their full, unique potential.

  • Resilience and regulation – strategies for life

    This programme addresses a wide range of problems that emerge from difficulties in emotional and relationship management.

    By increasing personal awareness, we are able to recognise and manage our emotions and triggers more effectively.

    As we become more resilient, we are better equipped to set healthy boundaries and build positive connections and relationships in order to create and live the life we want.

  • Understanding Behaviour – from self-sabotage to successful strategies

    Follows on from Resilience and Regulation – Strategies for Life

    This programme explores psychological frameworks, which help to explain our behaviour. By discovering which core beliefs drive our emotions, thoughts and behaviours, we are able to separate ourselves from our coping strategies.

    This allows us to determine which strategies are successful and replace those that are sabotaging our lives and preventing us from reaching our full unique potential.

  • Depression – activate your life

    In this programme we help you to explore the behavioural patterns of depression and learn how these behaviours impact your mood. We support you to make strategic changes that will help you alleviate your depression and take charge of your life.

  • Anxiety – rewire your anxious brain

    This programme helps you to understand the differences between worry, anxiety, panic and fear.

    We teach you how to identify where your anxiety comes from and use healthy coping strategies to modify your thought patterns and manage distress.

  • Understanding your neurodiversity

    This programme helps you to understand your neurodiversity and the challenges you may face on a daily basis. We resource you to manage overwhelm more successfully, develop healthy coping strategies, feel more confident and improve your relationships.

  • Understanding neurodiversity

    This programme helps to demystify neurodiversity. We explore diagnostic criteria, challenging behaviour and coping strategies, as well as supporting and resourcing those working with or caring for neurodiverse people with alternative, more successful, communication and regulation techniques.

  • Resourcing children through family therapy

    This programme helps children to cope, and resources parents to support themselves and their children through times of distress.

    We provide a safe space that enables honest communication and recognition for all individuals, helping to create family harmony and resilience.

  • Individual trauma therapy

    Horse Time also delivers bespoke programmes of individual trauma therapy. We recommend attendance of at least the Resilience and Regulation workshop programme before beginning individual work.

    This prepares beneficiaries by increasing self-awareness and understanding of their experiences, and resources them with the tools they need to build the resilience required for successful trauma processing.

    Attending additional workshop programmes has a positive impact on the efficacy and sustainability of therapeutic outcomes.

Our team

The success of our team lies in the individual skill set and experience each member brings to the delivery of our programmes. This combined with our value-based approach enables us to provide the best possible experience and outcomes for each beneficiary.
