Therapy sessions, EAP professional certification, custom workshops - we are here to help you meet your goals

Learn new techniques or build on your existing skills.  The Healing Horses Therapeutic Center provides Equine Assisted Therapy/Psychotherapy (EAP) training towards certification, workshops for NASW/CT Continuing Education Credits (CEU's, college internships, and, of course EAP direct service.  We also custom design training programs in Cultural Competency and Urban Barn Management to suit your requirements and unique needs.



Develop deeper relationships with your clients

Professional licensing, empathic and quality training, equine knowledge and cultural competency standards are the basis of our Healing Horses Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Certification (CCEAP).  Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is practiced by many reputable organizations, however other models do not address the cultural differences, needs and approaches for varying demographics.  That's what makes our model stand out from the herd!

When 'traditional' psychotherapy doesn't feel like the right fit....

Equine assisted therapy is a unique approach to traditional psychotherapy techniques.  A horse is present as an integral part of the therapeutic relationship as you, the client, walk beside them.  Horses are very intuitive and sensitive, and over time, as you begin to trust the horse's behavior (and they begin to trust you), it opens the door for deeper understanding and communication with the client and therapist.
