EAP partners with horses as part of the therapy sessions to provide an experiential body centered approach to working through mental health challenges. These more deep seated issues or behavioral patterns may cause disruptions in daily functioning or interfere with healthy relationships. Through interactive exercises with horses, a person may be compelled through actual hands on work to uncover and confront personal fears, anxieties and unhealthy thought processes. The experience is non threatening in that the horses may simply react to the energy present without the need to coerce clients for feedback, and thus, the client is free to move at the pace that is comfortable to him or her. Some sessions have little or no talking, focusing on non-verbal communication and internal processes and other times the client may feel inclined to share what’s going on to express thoughts that arise, gain clarity or look for guidance.
