EAP - GENERAL CLINIC DAY PROGRAM by Operation Centaur (2).png

General Clinic Day Programme

Tuesday 25th June 2024, 10am – 3pm
Richmond Park, London

We are often told that emotional distress is “all in our minds”, but we now know that anguish resides in our bodies, and in our relationships with others. Talking therapy isn’t always enough to bring about true revelation, or lasting change.

 

Horses are highly sensitive to human physiology, body language, and non-verbal communication. They provide immediate feedback, holding up a mirror to our feelings and situation, without judgement. Our unique model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) combines interactions with horses with evidence-based psychotherapy techniques. The experience is transformative, enabling people to better understand and actively work through the emotional and relational challenges that underlie their suffering. As is their nature, horses get us places faster and show us the path to lasting change.

In an era where emotional distress is considered “all in the mind” and talk therapy the gold standard treatment, we risk overlooking the role of the body – our own, our clients, and the interactions between the two – in the therapeutic relationship.

 

Horses are highly sensitive to human physiology and non-verbal communication and provide immediate, non-judgemental feedback. Interacting with them is like holding up a mirror and seeing our innermost thoughts, feelings and tensions reflected back. Working alongside horses can therefore bring about a deeper understanding of your impact on clients and their impact on you, enabling greater agency over your wellbeing, to maximise your effectiveness and minimise burnout.

CPD Addiction Focussed Day Programme for Mental Health Professionals

Monday 1st July, 10am-3pm Richmond Park, London

In the case of addiction, it is all too clear that emotional anguish resides not only in the mind, but in the body, and in relationships with others. It is little surprise then, that talking therapy isn’t always enough to bring about lasting recovery. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) can be transformative when combined with traditional treatment programmes or one-to-one therapy. As is their nature, horses get us where we want to go faster, and integrating EAP can be the key to maximising the effectiveness of your practice.

 

Working with horses holds up a mirror to our behaviours, unprocessed feelings and innermost fears. The wordless interactions provide solace for clients and unearth immediate insights for clients and therapists that might take months of talk therapy to uncover. From the first encounter, a client’s self-esteem and self-awareness can be enhanced, even after many years of stasis.

Monday 10th June 10am – 3pm
Richmond Park, London

In the case of addiction, it is all too clear that emotional anguish resides not only in the mind, but in the body, and in relationships with others, too. It is little surprise then, that talking therapy isn’t always enough to bring about lasting recovery. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) offers a different approach, one that can be transformative when combined with traditional treatment programmes or one-to-one therapy.

 

Working with a horse holds up a mirror to our behaviours, our unprocessed feelings, and our innermost fears. The wordless interactions offer compelling yet non-judgemental feedback, unearthing insights and providing solace. From the first encounter, our self-awareness and self-esteem can be enhanced, and we start to develop skills required for the positive relationships and emotional growth so critical to recovery, how to trust, communicate, establish boundaries, and overcome inevitable challenges.
