Our Services 

At Brumby Equine-Assisted Therapy, our practitioners are professionally trained and qualified in trauma informed and person centred counselling. We offer equine assisted therapy, room based therapy or natured based therapy, equine assisted learning, day retreats and art therapy services aimed at helping individuals rebuild resilience and find enjoyment in life.

We apply a wide range of psychological and human developmental principles and methods to address the individual treatment needs and goals of each client. We also incorporate the model, methods, and principles of Equine Assisted Therapy Australia (EATA) to ensure the delivery of competent and compassionate services.

 

Our approach incorporates body-oriented strategies, such as breathwork and resource exercises, with the primary goal of bringing participants into the present moment and fostering awareness of their experiences.

 

We provide individual therapy sessions for children, adolescents, and adults facing mental health challenges. These sessions involve supported experiential learning and activities in a therapeutic context, where horses play an integral role.

 

Our therapeutic treatments focus on cultivating safe relationships, attunement, emotional regulation, emotional knowledge, psycho-education, and developing competencies in boundaries and non-verbal communication.

 

Through our services, we aim to assist you in recognising and addressing emotional blocks, connecting with your body's cues, and gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. Our goal is to support your journey towards personal growth, healing, and improved well-being.

A Journey with Horses 

Exploring the Transformative Potential of Equine Therapy and Learning 

Services

Equine Assisted Mental Health Therapy 

Equine therapy provides a truly unique experience, enabling a profound connection not only with horses but also with oneself

Equine-Assisted Mental Health Therapy is a unique form of experiential learning therapy that offers a range of activities tailored to meet your therapeutic goals, personal desires, or to simply satisfy your curiosity. In creating an optimal therapeutic environment, these sessions take place outdoors, surrounded by the calming presence of nature and with the inclusion of horses. 

Our carefully designed experiential learning activities aim to address various psychological challenges and issues. These may include developing safe and healthy relationships, enhancing both verbal and non-verbal communication skills, fostering attunement, building self-esteem and self-confidence, improving emotional regulation and knowledge, providing psychoeducation, developing boundary-setting competencies, and ultimately offering a unique and powerful approach to personal growth and healing. 

Room Based or Natured Based Therapy

At Brumby Equine-Assisted Therapy, we acknowledge that partnering with horses may not be the ideal choice for everyone seeking therapeutic treatment. 

We understand that not all individuals may wish to engage with horses or find it suitable for their needs and preferences. Therefore, we offer the option of room-based and natured based therapy to specifically tailor your treatment and align it with your individual goals.

Equine Assisted Learning 

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is our non-therapy skills-based service that aims to teach valuable life skills, including social skills, communication skills, emotional regulation and leadership skills through interactions with horses. 

This form of learning promotes personal growth and increased self-awareness by engaging individuals in both mounted and non-mounted activities with horses. 

Our Equine Assisted Learning program is divided into four stages, with each stage comprising a total of six sessions. However, there is no strict time frame for completing all the activities within each stage. Our focus is on creating a safe and supportive environment that allows both humans and our equines to progress at a pace that feels comfortable for everyone involved. We prioritise the well-being and comfort of all participants, without placing unnecessary pressure on completing goal-oriented tasks.

Day Retreats

Our retreat aims to introduce you to the captivating world of equine therapy, offering an opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, guided by the remarkable bond between humans and horses.

We will engage in a variety of activities, some involving direct interaction with the horses, and others exploring different aspects of personal growth and self-awareness.

Our experienced facilitator will be there to guide you every step of the way, prioritizing your safety and comfort. Each activity has been carefully curated to offer profound insights and therapeutic benefits, ensuring a transformative experience for all participants.
