COUNSELING & BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
MENTAL HEALTH WITH HORSES
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a best practice model of therapy. It is a collaborative effort consisting of a professional facilitation team – horses, a mental health professional, and an equine specialist. The client’s mental health treatment goals, objectives, and interventions are the focus. Sessions are structured around the client’s treatment plan. Time is given for the client to experience and work independently or collaboratively with the horses.
All individuals, ages 15 to 105, and groups of any size are given an opportunity to experience the tranquility of the farm and horses. You do not have to be familiar with horses OR even like them to have a powerful session.
Willow Equine offers a non-judgmental space for clients to learn about themselves and others by interacting with the horses. At any point, clients can reflect on the experience with the professional facilitation team. Clients have attested to the fact that one EAP session can access the same content as years of traditional therapy. Lessons have a deeper meaning when you can see, touch, and smell what is happening!
We all possess leadership qualities, with operating at optimum potential as a goal. Time at the farm engages clients to identify potential metaphors, realizing the apparent impact they have. These experiences can be for the business owner, management, or full team development. The focus is on leadership or specific team goals.
Equine Assisted Coaching involves leaders and business owners, who:
- Are at an impasse and seem to be “spinning their wheels” with lackluster results
- Desire increased efficiency, productivity, and a greater profit margin
- Are seeking optimum concise leadership
Communication and confidence are imperative when working with teams, customers, and even yourself! We can capture your current approach to life and work, gaining valuable insights thus promoting a reshaping process. This process boosts leadership skills, which heightens motivation, influences positive outcomes, and elevates your productivity. It entails a 360* transformation. You lead with ease and passion.
Your sessions can be done over the phone OR with an extra “kick” of horsepower! Our horses offer authentic and honest experiences for your personal and professional growth.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) incorporates horses experientially for personal/professional growth and team-building. It is a collaborative effort between the horses, a mental health professional, an equine specialist, and a certified leadership coach. Together as a team, we work with the clients to achieve specific goals, personal transformation, and business development.
Equine Assisted Learning, a non-traditional approach, is solidly growing in popularity. The opportunity for employees to step out of the office, interact with horses THEN interpret their own experiences is enlightening. This experience increases personal awareness, thus improving team dynamics.
The purpose of team building is to transform individuals into a cohesive team. A team of people organized to work together interdependently and for a common goal. The time spent with the horses motivates your team to work together, identify strengths, improve productivity, and expand exponentially!
