Equine Assisted Therapy: Skills and Practice

Starts Thursday 9th May 2019 10-1pm, running weekly for 4 weeks, with a further 4 weekly sessions starting 20th June 2019

A course for those wanting to learn more about Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT); whether you are just starting out or are qualified and wanting to deepen your practice.

We aim to offer an overview of the field of EAT and current developments. The content will include a range of current methods and practice. We will study the horse/human connection. With the herd we will look at the horse as therapist and how horses can be facilitated by the EAT practitioner to enable clients to make meaning and healthy choices in their lives. There will be space offered for feedback and personal development. Participants will be encouraged to practise exercises and skills introduced between the sessions. We aim to offer a personal journey of discovery in the work of EAT and expand your practice.

£75.00 per session, with a commitment to attend all 8 sessions.
