MORE ABOUT SURF THERAPY
For example In our surf therapy program we work with clinical mental health counselors. We also offer a trauma informed experience in the ocean and on land. Our counselors work side by side with our surf instructors to offer a supportive space for students. For example instructors teach them how to catch waves. While our counselors work on specific mental health issues such as Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety, Phobias, Depression, Grief, Life transitions, and so forth. The program can be a one-time activity or ideally an ongoing program where growth and healing can be seen and measured.
The experience includes a 30 min therapeutic session with the counselor, 30 min land lesson for surfing, 90 min surfing in the ocean, 30 min integration and reflection session with counselor.
