What is Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP)?
EFP is defined by PATH intl as an interactive process in which a licensed mental health professional working with or as an appropriately credentialed equine professional partners with suitable equine(s) to address psychotherapy goals set forth by the mental health professional and the client.
In MARE (Managing Addiction Recovery with Equines), we are retraining and stabilizing clients’ energy fields so that they can be present in their bodies and ground to process the emotions and traumas that have been suppressed from habitual drug use. The bonds formed with the horses are central to this process, as developing that relationship, with the vulnerability and trust inherent in it, is the container and the vehicle to transforming deeply imbedded patterns of disconnection.
Through the course of sessions, new pathways in the brain are formed and reinforced regarding healthy connection; the unfolding is a beautiful process, as clients become more regulated and connected within themselves in their hearts and body, to their higher power, to the earth below their feet, and to those around them in a healthy and mindful manner. After completing our equine program, clients take with them the self-regulation techniques and relational skills they have learned, transferring them to apply to all of the relationships in their lives. Clients engaging in equine therapy have the ability to change their mind, body and soul.
