Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Izzy_Web.jpg

Wild Hearts offers limited individual Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotheray (TF-EAP) sessions for adults on Wednesdays in the Spring and Fall. Sessions are entirely unmounted and require no prior horse experience. Each session is facilitated by an Equine Professional and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.

 

We follow the principles of Natural Lifemanship®, a trauma informed approach to Equine Assisted Services based on the science of relationships. We believe that healthy, connected relationships are the key to healing from trauma.

 

Why TF-EAP?

 

  • Much of the exchange that takes place between horses and humans is non-verbal, which is particularly powerful for those who have experienced trauma that is difficult to express in words.
     

  • Horses are non-judgemental and provide instant feedback. We have the opportunity to identify and examine patterns of behavior and experiment with new behaviors in a safe environment.
     

  • Developing a healthy, connected relationship with a horse is often the first step in helping us find safety in connecting with ourselves and other people.

Dates:

We offer 8-week sessions in the Spring and Fall on Wednesdays at 10AM or 11AM. Each appointment is 60 minutes. Our upcoming Fall session begins on September 6th and ends on October 25th.
