What is HEART?
HEART is a fresh and exciting form of equine assisted therapy with holistic coaching. Through working with the horses, you can transform all forms of relationships (people, self, work, money, health etc) and thus be able to make powerful positive changes in all areas of your life. The magic and mystery of horses can open our minds and heal our hearts in such a way that few other therapies can match the speed and success this experiential healing gives.
How does it work?
By working with horses in Equine Assisted Therapy, they can act as reflections of our behaviour or personality, metaphors of the way we live our life and of how we communicate in relationships. Often through our human experiences we have been let down, lost trust or have become fearful of communicating our needs. Often in our human relationships we have lost who we truly are because we may be placating, manipulating or controlling things in order to get our needs met. However, sometimes we are not congruent with our true desires and whilst we can cover this up with most humans, horses have the ability to sense that incongruence and react accordingly. Sessions are suitable for both experienced riders and complete beginners. Sessions can be conducted on the ground in the stable or the riding arena or as a ridden exercise. It’s up to the individual. Each session lasts between 1 to 1.5 hours.
Where does it take place?
The HEART centre is set in the beautiful Surrey countryside, we offer an exciting and diverse range of equine assisted therapies and equine assisted coaching. Whether you are an individual seeking to overcome relationship or confidence issues or a corporation needing to build a fantastic team with great leadership, we have the ideal programme for you. We also have the facilities to support more challenging conditions, ranging from children with emotional difficulties to adults wanting addiction therapy. You don’t need to have a problem to overcome and enjoy the therapy offered by horses. Many people experience the joy of self-discovery simply through our equine assisted personal development plans. The Centre strives to provide a more natural environment for the horses. We ensure that, not only do we care for the physical well being of the horses, but their psychological and emotional welfare as well. We allow the horses to be horses as well as individuals and we pride ourselves on this. The horses are allowed to live out in a herd which provides a more relaxed atmosphere between them as they can all socialise with each other. When the horses come in they can snooze in stables of a good size, which have low walls so that they can still see and socialise with other members of the herd even when in. We have no stable vices to date under this management.
