What is the difference between FEEL and talk therapy?
You tell your deep concerns to a horse instead of a person. Horses do not judge and hold space for you as long as you are being authentic.
What is the difference between FEEL and other equine assisted therapies?
FEEL horses only do the work if they want to not because they have been asked. A majority of the activities with the horse is done without a halter and lead. So the horses will give their own responses without any prompting.
In some of the horse activities we invite you to connect your heart with the horses heart. This allows you to get out of your head and lead with your heart.
What do I wear to a FEEL session?
-We suggest comfortable, layered clothing with closed toe shoes or boots.
Do I get to ride the horses?
-No, all FEEL work is done on the ground.
What if I have never been around horses before?
-We will take it slow until you feel comfortable being with the horses.
What happens in a FEEL session?
-We start with an informal chat to determine what you would like to focus on in your session, discuss some of the science and theory behind the planned activity and then do FEEL horse activity. Though sometimes the horses decide to take the session in a different direction and we just go with it and enjoy the surprise!
How long does it take to see results?
-It varies depending on the situation. Our experience is that sessions with the horses are extremely powerful and it's common to receive immediate benefit after one session.
-It's also common to experience the power of change after a session with a horse and to want to immerse yourself deeper in the process by working on several areas of your life. After your first session, you will know if you want to continue with a package of four sessions to immerse deeper into the healing that horses provide.
