Equine Facilitated Therapy & Wellness
Horses Are Natural Healers That Help Us Reconnect With Ourselves
The collaboration with animals in therapy is known to have positive, long-lasting effects for people struggling with a number of concerns. Horses are very perceptive and have the ability to sense emotions in humans. This intuition allows horses to react to, and teach us about ourselves in a manner that is very impactful and meaningful. A large part of this work is respecting horses as partners and collaborators in therapy. Some of the concerns that can be addressed in Equine Facilitated Wellness sessions include:
- Relationship issues
- Grief and loss
- Emotional regulation
- Family conflict
The learning that can occur in an Equine Facilitated Wellness session is different from a regular counselling session in an office setting. Being in nature, without the sounds of traffic or the busyness of the city can be very therapeutic. If you like horses, nature, and the peacefulness of being out of the city, then Equine Therapy is for you.
At times, I will work with an equine professional during sessions, to ensure safety for everyone. Sessions take place just 30 minutes North of Calgary, close to Madden, AB. Availability for EFW sessions is on Mondays only.
I hold a membership with Equine Facilitated Wellness-Canada (EFW-CAN), which has developed the ethics and certification programs for working with equines in Canada.
To many, the words love, hope and dreams are synonymous with horses.Author Unknown
