Horses – Equine Assisted Therapy

Equine Assisted Therapy

Equine assisted therapy is where a horse is present in a therapy session. The session takes place outdoors, in close proximity to a horse, and me, either in the stable or field. The presence of my horse assists the therapeutic process, and me in exploring your emotions and sense of self worth.  Horses are wonderful creatures and being around them is a great way to understand more about your body language and non-verbal communication. They mirror our inner thoughts and feelings, and reflect our posture and anxieties and can be valuable partners in therapy.

Counselling with horsesMy horses are available as part of ongoing counselling therapy, if this would be beneficial for you and your process.

Equine Assisted Therapy For Horse Riders

As an equestrian professional for many years,  I can work with you and your own horse to develop your relationship, and to work with any issues you may have. We will  focus on gaining a better understanding about your horse and about yourself. Sessions will include ‘talking therapy’ without the horse, to gain understanding about yourself, and issues going on for you. We will also work with your horse, to improve how you function together.

We can discuss what comes up for you, and time will be spent on common issues that can turn horsemanship from a pleasurable experience into a nightmare!

I can offer a ‘package deal’ of 6 sessions, for example, starting and finishing with you on your own to notice and understand the change in your relationship with your horse.

50 minute sessions cost £40 each in the ‘package deal’ (travel costs may apply)

Sessions also available online via Skype or other service.
