Horses have a positive & powerful influence for people to help overcome fears & build confidence through accomplishing tasks with the horses. Horses in this program help people to find solutions in dealing with challenging situations in their lives.
Horses play the most important role in Equine Psychotherapy, they do not judge or have any preconceived thoughts of why the people are there. Horses are in the here and now and are truly honest in emotion and the freedom to act naturally. They are intuitive and are experts in reading body-language and non-verbal signals.
Activities with horses have been beneficial in the working with: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Conduct Disorders, Attachment Disorder and other issues in peoples lives.
EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) & EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) following the Eagala Model.
Can help clients with: Self-Esteem, Confidence, Communication, Creative Problem Solving, Social Skills, Team Building and more.
Individual connection with horses.
A visit at Horses Helping Heal and meeting the horses could be what you've been looking for, that is outdoors, but still close to suburbia.
Most of the horses are retired from riding but are living out the rest of their lives helping people. They all have different personality's and a lot of the time they will pick you to be their person.
You can spend your time hands on as much as you like or what ever your comfortable with. There are different activities that can be done with the horses if you would like to do a block of 4-6 sessions or more on application.
What are some of the activities we can do with the horses:
Brushing, leading, obstacles, decorating, crafts, washing, creating fun spaces, learning about horses, gaining horse skills and many more activities.
Other activities available:
Morning Tea with friends with the horses in the background.
Individuals or Elderly looking for an outing with careers, family or friends.
All activities have a base prices available on application.
I work with NDIS providers which can put you in contact with any questions for if your funding is covered for this activity.
