Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is an experiential form of therapy that involves the collaboration between horses, participants, an equine specialist, and a mental health specialist working outside the confines of a traditional office. Through hands on activities, clients are able to gain immediate feedback and insight on a variety of issues they may be facing. Research has shown that EAP may decease stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms.
Equine Assisted Learning is an experiential learning process in which individuals or groups participate in a variety of activities with horses in order to build skills, improve group cohesion, or gain insight into challenges. Equine Assisted Learning activities are a great way to develop leadership skills and bring energy to any corporate or group environment.
Walnut Hill Counseling offers both individual and group equine assisted therapy and learning sessions. In addition, half or full day workshops can be arranged for school, work, or social groups.
