EAP is a professional, innovative and experiential approach to counselling, psychotherapy and mental health that supports clients of all ages in
addressing therapeutic goals (emotional, cognitive, behavioural, relationship and mental health conditions), with horses as assistants, support and co-facilitators in this process.
Rebekah is a professional and experienced psychotherapist and certified equine-assisted practitioner. As a registered NDIS provider, she is also trained extensively in disability with a focus on trauma and trauma-informed practice.
Observation of horses
Horses are beautiful, intelligent, sensitive and powerful beings who can evoke strong feelings in clients or engage clients in the learning process.
Calm and healthy horses can assist in co-regulating a client’s nervous system, can model healthy living and expression of feelings, as well as offering non judgemental safety and trust. Horses can offer unique bio feedback and hold clients in a way traditional therapy environments cannot.
The natural environment can also contribute positively to therapeutic outcomes for clients.
