Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) is a form of counselling designed for adults and children and young people, either as individuals or as families that explores dark feelings and emotions through interaction with horses.
EFP is used to help deal with abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, self-confidence, self-esteem, stress, trauma and much more.
This powerful form of counselling works so well because horses are an intelligent and sensitive species. They have a unique ability to evoke feelings, and by interacting with them, they provide an opportunity for patients to navigate their thoughts, feelings and emotions in a way they haven’t before.
What EFP Can Help With
EFP has proven to be really powerful for improving:
- communication skills
- social skills
- assertiveness and confidence
- problem solving
- relationship issues
EFP counselling sessions provide you with the opportunity to explore your emotions in a safe, patient and non-judgemental way.
EFP in Wrexham with Kirsty
Kirsty is a highly experienced and qualified psychotherapist and LEAP Registered EFP Practitioner. Her amazing horses work with her at a farm in Coedpoeth, Wrexham.
For horses, only the present moment is important. This is why they are able to offer us patience and forgiveness. Working with horses in counselling will provide you with an alternative way to work on and deal with emotional processes, especially if you struggle to express your thoughts and feelings.
Body language plays an enormous part in how confident we feel. The horse’s ability to sense intentions and mirror our emotions makes them great at unravelling unhelpful interactions and communication. As these counselling sessions are experiential you will learn transferable skills to make connecting with humans easier again.
