Our Approach

Helping you gain clarity around who you are and what you want in your life is our guiding mission. We provide programs and sessions that make an impact. We don’t practice a one-size-fits-all approach, because we know you are unique, and your needs and goals are exclusive and personal to you. You will be supported in your growth and healing by the innovative and varied design of the programs and sessions.

We encourage you to take responsibility for your life and see more clearly how you interact with the world around you. Our activities are designed to guide and support you in your processes so you feel safe to explore and discover things about yourself you may not have been aware of previously, leading to personal growth and self-confidence in your authentic self.

Our integrative approach draws upon many modalities including equine-assisted psychotherapy, integrational psychotherapy and counselling therapies including, gestalt, somatic experiencing and sand play theories and experiential therapies.

Why Horses?

Horses value and respond to authentic connections, so we are encouraged to feel safe and allowed to be ourselves. Horses are naturally grounded, aware, and connected; being around them encourages us to be the same. They value trusting relationships with their herd, which can include the people  they live and work with. They are masters of perception of people’s feelings and use that information to decide how to behave.

Horses provide space for us to be in line with our true natures and allow us to try new things free of feeling right or wrong or judged.  They offer unbiased, effective, and immediate feedback in response to our behaviours and our choices.

Horses are experts at reading body language and perceiving human emotions and, therefore, respond to each of us as unique individuals. This special relationship provides an opportune setting for people to learn more about themselves and their patterns in the relationships they form.

Horses are amazing co-facilitators. They value relationships and are honest communicators, providing clear feedback. They provide immediate feedback to our body language.
