What is "Animals as Coaches"?

Animals as Coaches is the use of Animals Assisted Strategies to help clients gain clarity of their barriers in their life. Often animals give us a sense of safety, belonging, and connection that we struggle with in certain times or with people. Using animals in your coaching or in counseling can often help to regulate and stabilize how you are feeling in your body and give insight to where you may be stuck. FFW uses dogs and horses in carefully designed and monitored settings to help break through those barriers towards new possibilities.

What are some of the strategies used?

The strategies vary depending on the goals and need. Dogs for example are very helpful in bringing safety and emotional regulation just by being with us. The horses can be helpful in understanding our relationship patterns and ways we can make changes to better connect with others. The possibilities are endless.

Who can benefit?

Anyone!  As long as you are willing and not allergic, the animals are non-bias and open to working with you. 

As of right now, we are only offering this service to FWF clients, so if you are interested in either Life Coach or Counseling Services, we can offer our furry coaches as part of your Directional Change Plan.
