Horses as Therapy
My psychology background led me to counselling and psychotherapy primarily to incorporate Equine Therapy into my work. I am a member of PSI and aPre-Accreddited member of IACP. Currently completing a MA in order to do further research into equine therapy. I have further trained in cbt,bereavement support, mindfulness, family systems and cism (crisis intervention). I run a private practice and work voluntarily with Turas Le Cheile and VCS Tallaght.
My presentation will look briefly at the history of equine therapy and various models . The EAGALA model, what it involves, why horses? Some data - results of effectiveness. Concluding with personal experience.
