Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Healing Through Healthy Relationships
Natural Lifemanship for the mental health field facilitates a process whereby clients are able to:
Address and move through past or present damaging life circumstances.
Understand how those circumstances affect their current interactions.
Make the personal changes necessary for healthy, fulfilling relationships in the present and future.
Your Unique Journey
"We use the physiology of the horse to address the physiology of trauma (which is stored in the body and causes dysregulation), and we use the psychology of the horse to address the psychology of trauma (which disrupts relationship patterns)."
Journey in Togetherness
"Neuroscience empowers us by demonstrating that we can change the brain through new experiences and relationships. Identifying patterns in a way that informs both compassionate understanding and a clear path to healthy change is an essential step toward healing, growth and transformation."
Begin a New Journey
"Life is full of relationships. Relationships profoundly shape and influence our lives from the moment life begins. With Natural Lifemanship you will learn how to create the kinds of relationships that heal and transform self and others, and how to help others do the same. Connected and attuned relationships lead to healthy development; they contribute to healing at any age, and enhance well-being. "
