Equine Assisted Learning is a relational & experiential form of mental & emotional health support, and can be a powerful addition to room-based therapy, where clients learn in relationship with practitioner and horses. Rather than only "talking about", clients actively participate in their unique support sessions by doing and exploring. Clients are offered safe experiences with our horses in the natural surrounds of Sugar Beach Ranch for the purpose of social-emotional and relationship skills building, building connection with self and others, and personal development.
Topics that can be explored may include:
Growing Self-Esteem & Building Confidence;
Developing Healthy Relationships, including Couple & Family Relationships;
Grief & Loss;
Trauma & Depression;
Healthy Emotional Expression & Regulation;
Exploring (Un-)Helpful Behavioural Patterns;
Experimenting with Blocks/Obstacles/Motivations;
Enhancing Communication Skills;
Working around Personal Boundaries; etc.
