Counselling & Therapies
We provide an effective unique programme of Equine Therapy Learning in a beautiful peaceful location in the Vale of Glamorgan. Equine Therapy Learning has helped people when other traditional forms of counselling haven’t been able to; it enables people to learn about themselves and others through being around horses.
Horses are like a non-judgmental mirror; they are such responsive, accepting and intuitive animals that they are able to reflect truthfully a person’s character, problems and emotions right back at them – even if you don’t know who you are or where you are going, the horse does.
Without the need for words, challenge, risks and expectations we already are set with the perfect foundation and relationship for positive growth and real learning.
- Equine Assisted Therapy
- Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Art and play Therapy
Every individual has their own treatment action plan tailored specifically to them, therefore no two programmes are the same. We can offer a combination of CBT, Equine Therapy and Family Learning depending on the individual’s wants and needs.
If a person requires Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) without being in close proximity to the horses we are more than happy to accommodate this; having a therapy session in our peaceful and natural setting is very powerful and empowering in itself.
We offer private, group and family counselling sessions; anyone can participate – no prior horse or riding experience is necessary.
