Individual counseling Sessions are available as well as Equine Assisted Therapy to work with those who have experienced Trauma in their lives. If you are having difficulty finding Solutions in a traditional office therapy session we would be happy to discuss the options available at the farm.
Natural Lifemanship - Trauma focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy- (TF-EAP)
Natural Lifemanship Principals are based on Bruce Perry's work and trauma informed care. Some sessions may be completed while riding to establish and build cross-brain neuronal connections necessary for self-regulation. Studies show that the brain function for those who have experienced trauma is often affected due to limited neurological connections in the brain. We believe that these connections can be increased. TF-EAP uses the rhythmic movement to increase and reorganize the connections in the brain which will increase the brains ability for emotional regulation and impulse control.
Other sessions are completed on the ground while interacting with the horse with the goal of building a connected relationship based on a partnership and then transferring this skill to healthy human relationships.
