My son had attended some counselling previously as he was struggling with anxiety issues as a result of some difficult circumstances at home. Equine therapy sessions were offered and we decided to attend together so I could gain an awareness of how best to help him and see him within a therapy environment.
The sessions were outdoors so very relaxed and informal and my son responded really well to the horses and the environment.
The therapist’s manner was very calming and reassuring and my son quickly formed a trusting relationship with her.
These sessions allowed him to work through thoughts that were causing him anxiety at his own pace and the horses made him unaware that he was the focus of the session.
I fully trusted the expertise of the therapist and feel that we gained a lot in a short space of time from attending.
