This service is offered at a small and private stable approximately 20 minutes south of Ottawa.
Adrienne is certified by the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) and follows the therapeutic model and safety and activity guidelines set out by this organization. http://www.eagala.org/
Each experiential session is designed with the client(s) individual needs and goals in mind. Sessions can focus on a variety of skills including communication, assertiveness, self-confidence and boundary setting. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy sessions involve ground level activities and contact between the horses and client(s). Clients do not ride the horses as part of the therapy.
This program is recommended as a supplement to regular psychotherapy sessions with Adrienne or another mental health practitioner.
