Horses Helping Humans Succeed
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a hands-on form of psychotherapy where the emphasis is on doing not talking.
The experiential sessions encourage clients to find their own solutions which can create accelerated and long term change.
The activities with the horses are ground-based and reflect real life situations.
The horses will often become symbols for the people, issues and challenges in the client’s life.
This enables clients to recognize unhealthy patterns, build on their personal strengths and change their lives.
When clients change, the horses immediately respond differently. This is where the learning occurs.
EAP sessions are unique. Even people with no horse experience or who are afraid of horses can take part.
Sessions do not involve any horse riding since all the activities with the horses are ground based.
EAP sessions are suitable for individuals, groups, couples and families.
