Williams Christian Counseling
A very effective approach with children and some adults is recreational therapy. This approach
includes using a 47 acre farm south of Mayfield. This is a partly wooded farm with over five
miles of nature trails,
picnic shelters, creek bridges, rolling hills, and tree stands. Hiking, listening, watching,
processing, wildlife observing, and meditating may be part of the treatment program. Just getting
out in nature can
make it much easier to open up and process issues of concern. Getting out can give a person an
opportunity to see his or her life from a different perspective and consider coping strategies that
he or she may not have considered before. In nature we see the Lord's handiwork and can be
reminded of how He can heal our lives when we let Him.
In the following pictures

recreational therapy experience.
