What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy?

Equine assisted therapy involves horses in the psychotherapy process.  It is a team approach involving a psychotherapist, an equine specialist and at least one horse. Therapy with horses is a powerful way for people to reconnect to themselves, the natural environment and their inner knowing. It provides opportunities for new insights into relationship patterns; inner thoughts and beliefs that may hold people back from making changes in their lives. These difficulties can be mirrored by the horses and how they respond in the sessions e.g. walking away when someone wants to connect - mirroring an aspect of their relationship with a partner.  Equine Assisted Psychotherapy offers a unique way to reconnect to yourself through a relationship with animals and some shared experiences.

Which Problems Can Be Helped Using Equine Assisted Therapy?

Therapy with horses can help adults and children with a range of mental health problems including social anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, addiction, trauma and much more.

Sometimes the problem is harder to define, it may be a change of mood; an increase in stress and/or anxiety or a sense that life has lost some of its pleasure – any of these may be motivating individuals to seek therapy.

One of the main goals of our therapy with horses service in Brampton, Cumbria  is to support people with improving their quality of life, this includes ’emotional regulation’, self-responsibility, self-care and confidence. When it comes to self-confidence it can be daunting to have such a majestic animal in your presence, the more confident you become in the presence of horses, the more confident you will find yourself within day-to-day situations in your life.

Anxiety Therapy with Horses in Cumbria

Did you know that, according to the NHS, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is estimated to affect up to 5% of the UK population? This may sound like a small amount, but 5% of the UK population is huge. Everyone experiences some level of anxiety within their lifetime, especially if they are going through a period of uncertainty or change. If you suffer from prolonged anxiety, regardless of what you are anxious about, the anxiety therapy with horses that we offer throughout Brampton and Cumbria could work for you. Horses are highly attuned to their senses which alerts them to potential dangers. Anxiety can be a symptom or an overactive stress response that is constantly switched on to danger.  Our anxiety therapy with horses can help people connect to their environment through their senses, physical movement bringing them back into the present moment.

Another benefit of equine assisted therapy is it helps to practice vulnerability in a safe space where there is no need for words. The latest developments in trauma therapy show that talking about difficult events increases physical symptoms and distress. It is more important to learn how to manage strong emotions through self-regulation skills, identifying trauma triggers and through using our senses to reduce stress. Horses do not judge, and it provides the opportunity for people to try new things and step out of their comfort zone.
