EMDR and Equine Facilitated EMDR

"Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy approach designed for working with distressing or traumatic memories.

The theory behind EMDR is that many psychological difficulties are the

result of distressing life experiences which have not been stored in memory properly and are said to be unprocessed or blocked. These traumatic memories may need some help to become processed, and EMDR is one way to do this"

Equine Facilitated EMDR combines two therapeutic approaches that are proved to work very well in processing traumatic experiences.

The horses will enable you to process painful memories - not on your own.

At times, they will also help you to transform what feels negative into feelings that are more positive and constructive.


The horses will also bring reflections and awareness of any underlying difficulties or answers that might not be conscious to you in that moment. This new awareness will enable you to find answers to questions or new way of being.
