We are often told that emotional distress is “all in our minds”, but we now know that anguish resides in our bodies, and in our relationships with others. Talking therapy isn’t always enough to bring about true revelation, or lasting change.

Horses are highly sensitive to human physiology, body language, and non-verbal communication. They provide immediate feedback, holding up a mirror to our feelings and situation, without judgement. Our unique model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) combines interactions with horses with evidence-based psychotherapy techniques. The experience is transformative, enabling people to better understand and actively work through the emotional and relational challenges that underlie their suffering. As is their nature, horses get us places faster and show us the path to lasting change.


Led by our team of clinical psychologists and psychotherapists, our EAP Day introduces the essential components of our approach in a single day. No riding is involved, and no prior experience of horses is required. Through experiential and reflective exercises with horses, we will explore personal challenges around the following focus areas:


In a state of distress, emotional and physical self-care are often overlooked. With our horses, develop greater awareness and understanding of what it takes to look after yourself. Listen to your body as you first interact with our horses and reclaim responsibility for your wellbeing.


Humans, like horses, need connection. Distress often arises when we habitually disconnect from our own needs, or from others, to protect ourselves from harm. Connecting with horses can teach us how to tune into the moment and foster mutual respect and security, rather than dependency or detachment.


If we want our lives to change, we must learn how to move. Horses are constantly in motion. Working alongside them uncovers how and why we get stuck and sheds light on how to access the strength we need to overcome obstacles.


We all need purpose, and we suffer when we can’t find it. Horses look to their herds for direction. By working as a group, we explore how to make decisions, how and when to lead, to follow, to accept, and to challenge. We reveal the power of intention and gain a greater sense of who we are, and where we want to go next.

Open to adults experiencing current mental health difficulties.
£395 per person (£345 early bird until 10th May).
