Equine Assisted Therapy

Equine Assisted Therapy

Horses are great counsellors. Equine assisted therapy is about the horse being part of the therapy session, alongside me. At our initial session, we can discuss if my horses would be of support to you in your individual counselling process.

Horses in Counselling

 

Horses mirror our feelings and our unconscious processes – being with them and developing a relationship with a horse is very special. Taking time to really notice what is going on for you in relation to the horse develops self-awareness and helps you to understand how you function.

Self Awareness

Learning about how you come across to a horse can influence your own life skills; in relationships for example, how you cope with stressful situations, perhaps in work or sports environments. The possibilities are endless.

Why horses?

Horses are very aware of non-verbal communication- our body language, how calm and confident we are, or not, simply by being in their presence. They pick up things about ourselves we are not even aware of-from a distance!

Being outdoors and experiencing wildlife can be valuable to therapeutic counselling. Here are details of animal assisted therapy

50 minute sessions cost £40 each as part of ongoing therapeutic counselling.
