Equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) offers an innovative experiential approach that engages our whole selves—thoughts, feelings and body sensations—in ways that talk therapy can’t. With the guidance and support of an experienced EAP team, sessions with horses offer a safe way to catalyze the therapeutic process and provide opportunities to discover and try out new ways of being with ourselves and with others.
Many people find that working in an arena with a herd of horses – large, curious, honest, and nonjudgmental living beings – stirs up not only their deepest fears (such as rejection and failure) but also their deepest hopes (such as connection and confidence). Put another way, it’s hard to fool a horse.
Equine assisted psychotherapy sessions are offered by several independent therapists at ClearWind Farm — each with a unique approach and specialties. Click here to see who they are.
