Horse Sense Therapy in association with Helping Hooves UK 2019 CPD programme for counsellors and therapists.We are offering a range of 6 hr CPD days aimed at looking in depth at how we as therapists affect the counselling relationship as we establish and attempt to maintain a therapeutic alliance with our clients as we join them in their change. Each day focusses on a different aspect of relationship and is aided by interaction with horses. Equine assisted therapy is rapidly becoming a highly acclaimed therapy, and for good reason. In this programme we will use the immediate feedback from the horses as we observe and work with them to aid our understanding of ourselves. This is an experiential exercise and participants are advised that deep personal exploration can produce strong feelings, however, the rewards can be transformational.
The days are held in association with Helping Hooves UK and are based at Equine Centre: Vicarage Lane Veteran Horses, Upper Swanmore, Bishops Waltham SO32 2QT. These are primarily “outdoor” events and will carry on regardless of the weather, if it is safe to do so. Comfort is added by good camp facilities, so we can reflect and relax inside. A full health and safety brief will be carried out at the start of every day. NB: we do work closely with the horses and ask you to recognise the potential risk, however well managed, of personal injury inherent with any work involving animals.
