Equine Assisted Therapy: Skills and Practice

Starting Thursday 22nd February 2018 10.00am-1.00pm and running weekly for a total of 6 sessions, with a further 6 weekly sessions starting 7th June 2018.

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 12 sessions.

Parenting with Ponies

Thursday 12th April 2018 10am-3.30pm

Parenting is not an automatic skill – it’s an ongoing learning process and requires us to dig deep into our personal resources. How do we negotiate our needs and that of our children? Working with the horses we will look at how we communicate and offer care and leadership to a non-verbal sentient being. Our skills of relating with the horses throw light on how we conduct our relationships with our children.

£75.00 per person or £135 per couple.
