What to Expect for Counseling:
KFCEE encompass spirituality and Christian principles in sessions and counseling work, ultimately it is the decision of the client to follow this course of counseling, or not. When you call Kross Fire Counseling, information about your needs is requested. From there, you and your therapist decide when to set the initial appointment. When you arrive at the office, we will sit down to discuss your needs and goals. Then we will create a direction for your counseling. In order to see positive progress, we need to work daily on changing our habits, so you may receive activities to complete or educational paperwork to look at between sessions.
In addition to traditional counseling, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is offered. Many choose to share their time in the traditional office setting with the horses in order to gain insight about their behaviors much more quickly than if only in the office.
What to Expect for Riding Lessons:
Prior to your first lesson, we will sit down and discuss your goals and the amount of time, energy, and effort that you can put into accomplishing these goals. At that point, we will meet you where you are, whether it is your first time around a horse or you are a seasoned competitor. Please arrive before your lesson and are groomed and prepared on time to begin your lesson. KFCEE works with the individual based on their attention span; younger children and/or inexperienced riders may only be able to have a 30-40 minute session at first. KFCEE can also offer extended lessons of 2 or 3 hours or all day lessons. Furthermore, group lessons are also available. Our clients pursuing performance goals will be challenged to push themselves, but believe that it should always be enjoyable, for if it’s not giving us pleasure, we will become burned out which will in turn affect our horses’ contentment. With growth and improvement comes some pain, but believe that we should still be excited about the process.
