I am certified to practice the EAGALA model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (horseshelping people). This is known to be useful in supporting trauma related issues (including PTSD), challenging behaviours, depression & anxiety.
The EAGALA model (Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association) means that we work as a team which includes a registered mental health professional, a certified equine specialist and the horse(s).
As a member of EAGALA, I follow the Professional Standards and Code of Ethics of this organisation. Our work always takes place on the ground (no riding), using a client focused, solution orientated approach.
