Everyone who desires a richer life experience can benefit from this type of therapy, even those not interested in horses or those who’ve been afraid of horses. An important facet of the therapy is how you respond when you are in the presence of a horse. Simply being with horses reveals distinctive and significant qualities in each of us. The horses also provide a healing space to just be you and to explore what that means for you.
If you are seeking clarity, direction, and insight this therapy can be useful as a coaching tool. It can also be deeply therapeutic and healing. Research and clinical studies have found Equine Assisted Mental Health sessions to be particularly effective for individuals suffering with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), war veterans, survivors of abuse and trauma, and people battling eating disorders.
