Here at Blue Moon Counseling our services go above and beyond, just therapy. One of our newest additions to the Blue Moon Family is equine therapy. We offer our services to all of our clients and we are also offering these services to anyone interested.
Benefits Of Equine Therapy
How equine can help in session:
- Teaching responsibility
- Teaching assertiveness
- Building confidence
- Increases communication
- Increases self awareness
Equines are sensitive to nonverbal communication and respond to the message the client is presenting in the moment. Equine assisted Psychotherapy has been shown to help in the healing and growth processes within individuals and groups.
How it works
Equine Therapy is effective when used with an individual client, a family, or a group of unrelated clients. In a typical session the client or group is given a task to perform based on the therapeutic focus. One or more of the equines will be used to accomplish the task. The equine specialist and mental health professional report their observations back to the client based upon the reaction of equines during the session. The client then interpret the horses responses and use that metaphor to better understand their own patterns of behavior within relationships.
