Horses Helping Heal 

E  agala Eap & EAL

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.

Can help clients with: Self-Esteem, Confidence, Communication, Creative Problem Solving, Social Skills, Team Building and more.

Horse Helping Heal Story

I really like helping people and I know how much my horses have had an impact on my life. Some of the horses I bred, bought or was given by their owners who wanted their old horse that cant be ridden anymore. As I've known most of these horses for over 10yrs from coaching at pony club, I felt they would make a great fit for equine therapy.   

I was introduce to the team approach of therapy of having a mental health professional and a horse trainer with horses to help people in the community.  The MH looks after the clinical side of therapy and I look after the safety side of the clients and horses in activities.  

I have provided the contact details in the services area of the MH's I work with, for people to contact directly for what they can cover, costing and availability. Laura Adams is on Thursdays and Fiona Hasson is on Tuesdays.

I can also offer private horse connections and activities, that is one on one or for small groups. You can contact me directly on the link below.
