Mindfulness approaches, Equine Facilitated Therapy (or Equine Facilitated Wellness)
Mindfulness approaches help clients to be focused in the here and now. Generally rooted in Eastern meditative techniques, Mindfulness approaches offer a non-judgmental alternative therapy for dealing with stress and other psychological issues.
By observing worrisome thoughts and learning to accept situations for what they are, people can learn to cope with issues better and make more productive choices.
Mindfulness approaches include a range of models, including dialectical behaviour therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. These approaches can be used in a wide range of settings to reduce the symptoms of a broad spectrum of psychological issues. These therapies can be practiced effectively in individual or group therapy.

Equine-assisted therapy involves interactions between individuals and horses, guided by trained therapists, to promote emotional growth and learning. Through activities like grooming, riding, and groundwork, participants can develop communication skills, build trust, and gain insights into their own behavior and emotions. This therapy capitalizes on the unique bond between humans and horses to support therapeutic outcomes.
