Therapeutic Model of Care

HYPAR’s Therapeutic Model of Care provides the framework for young people and older individuals who have experienced trauma to establish a better sense of direction and closer movement towards wellbeing. Our model aims to ensure that individuals can build connections with others, whilst developing relationship and leadership skills under the support of positive role models. 



HYPAR WILD accommodates the specific needs of individuals in our groups and promotes therapeutic and adventurous experiences that are important to an individual’s journey. Benefit from our nurturing take on outdoor, self-paced adventure-based activities, and move steadily with freedom of expression as you adventure with HYPAR.
