We are a dedicated team of highly skilled coaches who are committed to journeying alongside those that visit us. We offer a holistic approach to Coaching and Corporate Training, Family Coaching and working with a wide range of Special Educational Needs.
We are based in a beautiful natural environment; people come to us when they are ready to take a step back from the treadmill of life and make changes to help themselves and others around them grow personally and professionally. For over 20 years we have worked closely with organisations, schools and individuals from all walks of life to make those changes happen. Through our programmes and transformational coaching, we offer the support needed to develop and grow.
Equine Facilitated Coaching and Learning also referred to as Equine Assisted Learning, (EFC, EFL and EAL), offers a pioneering approach to personal development and professional coaching. The approach we offer is powerfully, partners with the horses, enabling acceleration in raising self awareness and then making positive change. Horses have instinctive reactions and mirror behaviours within individuals. By recognising these attributes it enables us to be honest and true to ourselves and develop from within in a powerful and life changing way.
Working in a natural environment we utilise the horse’s instinctive reactions to deepen the learning and achieve sustainable results. All our concepts, models and exercises with the horses are unique to Learning to Listen, and all people who work with us are trained in these unique concepts and models.
Our belief is that the young people placed with us, for what ever period of time we get to share with them, will eventually move on from us more equipped to find happiness and their reasons to truly shine in their lives. They will have gained practical skills, increased emotional wellbeing, wider life knowledge, and where appropriate, academic outcomes, to equip them on their journey into adulthood.
We are determined to continue to build our reputation as somewhere that makes a real difference to children and young peoples’ lives. Our mission is to ensure they leave with the confidence and security to follow their passions and dreams, and to be proud of their time with us.
We are now established as a therapeutic alternative intervention service and registered ASDAN Centre, offering Equine Therapy, short courses, ASDAN qualifications and a wonderful range of outdoor activities. Our young people come to us via their schools, caring professionals, families and referral services.
Our goals are clear. Our team and current population of students are all very proud of what we have achieved so far, and what we are committed to go on to achieve in the future.
