Horses have been part of my life for many years, since I was a little girl. They are my best friends, but also my work colleagues in both the equestrian world and in mental health.
Equine Assisted Counselling
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 because of this they can be valuable partners in therapy.Equine assisted counselling is where a horse is present in a therapy session. The session takes place outdoors, in close proximity to the horse, and me, either in the stable yard or field. The presence of a horse assists the therapeutic process by adding another dimension to exploring your emotions, relationships and evaluating a sense of self worth.
