Equine therapy is a treatment modality that is exploding all over the world. It is a relatively new therapy in the last decade and has been successful in helping people who have suffered from depression, mental illness, learning disabilities, PTSD, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety and trauma to name a few. Healing In Harmony With Horses is an experiential, psychotherapeutic model that has a powerful effect on the individual. It uses the horse as a catalyst to heal emotional wounds and bring about change. It is an exploration of an individual’s relationship with self and others.
Our philosophy centres on building a safe and supportive environment that recognises and affirms the unique value of each person. Our treatment philosophy is realised through a metaphorical connection with horses. This enables the individual to become aware of their thoughts, emotions and behaviour and work through issues they may bring.
Our vision is to use the Equine experience toward positive change from dysfunctional patterns to emotional growth and healing.
We begin with the individual, therapist and the horse creating an environment of trust and respect. This is significant to achieve a sense of safety, in order for healing to begin. This model addresses emotional issues, such as anxiety and depression, PTSD, eating disorders, addictions, abuse (physical, sexual and emotional), in a safe and nurturing environment. It helps develop and expand one’s self awareness and one’s consciousness while working with the horse.
Healing In Harmony with Horses is a very unique healing modality. It brings together talk therapy, movement therapy and equine therapy, which allows the individual to experience mind, body and spirit connections, in the here and now. This in turn brings about a conscious awareness of the individual’s relationship with him or her self and others.
People are able to overcome trauma and achieve remarkable progress in the presence of horses at a much quicker rate than mainstream therapy. Come and experience a session for yourself which includes the simulator as well as our special horses. Healing in Harmony with Horses heals one heart and soul at a time!
