Equine Assisted Therapy

Spirit Project

Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre for women

CPD Training for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Horses are congruent and empathic animals that can mirror our emotions and teach us about power and boundaries, whilst connecting us to what lies hidden or buried within ourselves.


Experiential personal and group development, particularly effective in exploring issues of power, authenticity, communication, assertiveness and self worth. Horses can help unlock feelings and experiences stored in the body.


Equine Therapy is a non-riding experience and open to anyone with or without horse experience.


It can offer a non-judgemental and safe environment where self-awareness and great insight

can be accessed.

"..horses radiate immense trust in the universe. Intelligent and highly adaptable, they embody strength, freedom, spirit, gentleness, beauty, authenticity, loyalty, and grace...(they) navigate the paradox of nourishing individual and group consciousness simultaneously ...can we, as humans, learn to do the same?"
