EAL Sessions

Sally can facilitate EAL on a one on one basis or for a group of 4 participants.
The sessions help clients to learn about themselves and others while processing emotions, feelings, and behaviours.  
When facilitating a group Sally will have a helper who will use their knowledge of horses making sure that they are happy and safe and provide input from the horse’s perspective into the session.
It is advised that clients and groups follow the Horse wisdom program, to build on the psycho-education, can also be tailored to suit the goals and needs of clients.

Equine - Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)

Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is a form of experimental therapy that involves interaction between clients and horses.
Sally will observe and interact with the client in order to identify behaviour patterns and process thoughts and emotions. This process helps the clients learn about themselves and others, while processing or discussing the client's feelings, behaviours, and patterns. Sally as a Qualified counsellor can deepen the experience and support the client on a deeper level, which is the Psychotherapy component.
 Sally will only work with clients on a one on one basis for EAP.
It is recommended that clients have a minimum of 4 weekly sessions.
