At Horses Treat, we aim to improve the human strengths within a person that will help them cope with and manage today’s stressors, and to give them the tools to live their lives to their full potential. We do this with Equine Assisted Psychotherapy in Wisconsin.
We utilize evidence-based approaches to help develop and strengthen individuals, couples and families. It is our belief that each person has a unique ability for positive change and that often the quickest and most effective route to making that change is through learning by doing. We bring trained, credentialed professionals with extensive experience in helping individuals, children, couples and families into an equine assisted psychotherapy setting where we believe those individuals and families can best learn to thrive.
The therapist assumes a collaborative role that allows for a different kind of conversation to emerge—one that highlights the clients’ own wisdom as demonstrated through their relationship to the horse.
Engaging with horses allows clients to explore how they develop trust, manage anxiety and deal with uncertainty. Clients can often move more quickly and dramatically through the equine therapeutic process and experience changes in their relationships and their everyday responses to challenging situations.
In addition, equine assisted psychotherapy can be a much less threatening and stigmatizing process than working with a therapist in an office setting.
We offer our equine assisted psychotherapy in Wisconsin as well as other psychotherapy and experiential psychotherapy services to those who wish to do all of their work with us, or we will collaborate with your current provider to offer supplementation to your work elsewhere. We are happy to discuss what your needs are and how we might be able to help.
