Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a healing modality that combines qualified mental health professionals and one or more therapeutic horses. Through grooming, leading or just being with the horse, clients are supported and guided in learning more about themselves, working through difficulties, and improving communication and relationship skills.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy can be practised with individuals, couples or groups.

EAP is an integrated approach incorporating Equine Assisted Therapy, counselling, Gestalt therapy, mindfulness practices and horsemanship. 

There is a growing body of evidence that supports that EAP has been effective in treating:
