If your client is stuck in destructive patterns, intellectual defences, problematic relationships, unhealthy boundaries, or talking about their issues but being unable to put that awareness into action, HEAL Psychology can provide your clients with an experiential component designed to facilitate and enhance your clinical work.
Our model combines the intuitive qualities of the horse with the client's desire to learn, grow and heal. Through interaction with the horses, clients develop new behaviours and insights that enhance their lives and progress therapeutic work.
Therapists are welcome to attend sessions with the client to learn about their experience. Activities with the horses are ground-based and allow our team to help clients explore their interactions with the horses and the symbolism and metaphors that emerge.
Client results can include moving away from intellectualising to affective awareness, turning insight into behavioural change, improving emotional regulation, increasing mindfulness, focus, intention and commitment, having a capability to set effective and clear boundaries, and enhanced empowerment and resilience.
