As Equine Assisted Psychotherapist (EAP) I will help you explore issues of power, authenticity, communication, boundaries, assertiveness and self worth.
All with the help of the Horses.
The work is experiential in nature so you can learn through experiencing,
by participating in activities with the horses, then processing the feelings afterwards.
Together we will set clear goals you wish to achieve
An initial assessment will take place to ensure this form of therapy is suitable to your needs. If not, I will discuss with you the further options available to us
Further sessions will also establish Health and Safety, horse handling,
how EAP works and set structures for the work.
Equine assisted therapy is a non-riding experience and open to anyone with or without horse experience.
Horse are congruent and empathic animals that can mirror our emotions and teach us about power and boundaries, whilst connecting us to what lies hidden or buried within ourselves.
This innate mirroring provides an opportunity for us to change behaviour
and witness immediate responses.
Horses help us to reconnect to a bodily experience of knowing and the freedom to act upon that knowing. They help us to overcome fear and develop confidence, whilst providing insights into how we respond to intimidating and challenging situations in our life.
