Equine Assisted Therapy and Personal Development (EAT)
EAT can assist people to learn and improve upon Behavioural Modification, Relapse Prevention, Creative Thinking, Assertiveness, Communication, Social Skills, Building Healthy Relationship, Self-Acceptance, Problem Solving, Leadership, and Teamwork.
At Women Under a Blue Moon (WUBM) we use the Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association (EAGALA) model of EAT. EAGALA provides an international professional standard of practice that requires extensive training, continuing education, and adherence to a high standard of practice and ethics. EAGALA model EAT has been effectively utilised in the treatment of emotional and behavioural disorders including depression, anxiety, aggression, PTSD, eating disorders, and substance abuse.
Sessions are based on principals of cognitive-behavioural, acceptance and commitment, and solution-focused therapies and are conducted by our accredited EAGALA team consisting of a mental health professional (Jen Black) and horse specialist (Louise Campbell), along with a small herd of horses.
EAT is experiential in nature with clients learning about themselves through participating in groundwork activities (no riding) with horses and then processing feelings, behaviours, and patterns. The sessions centre on the “here and now” leading to greater self-awareness, understanding, self-management, and personal growth. EAT offers an alternative evidence based treatment to traditional “talk therapy” that provides meaningful and effective experiences that have a lasting impact on individuals, young people, families and groups.
Referrals – Please refer to the Referral and Client Registration forms below. As sessions are facilitated by a Registered Psychologist, Medicare rebates may be available.
