Suzanne Carter is a psychotherapist who works with the emotional response evoked by the animal-human interaction. Unlike prolonged therapies, core issues quickly rise to the surface to be resolved. For example, fear, an appropriate response to a 1000 pound animal, presents an experiential opportunity to learn effective ways to maintain safety, set personal boundaries, and be assertive. Under the guidance of the therapist, the client experiments with ways to deal with the fear. The way the horse responds directly and clearly to the clientís actions provides instant feedback about what works and what doesnít. What results is a therapy in which the client can immediately experience the benefits of making changes. The insights gained through this work translate into practical life skills. Clients may gain greater self-confidence, improve their creative thinking and problem solving skills, enhance their understanding of personal responsibility and increase self-awareness. EAP addresses a variety of mental health and human development concerns including behavioral issues, substance abuse, eating disorders, emotional and sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, relationships and communication. Each session is specifically designed to suit the clientís needs. There are many activities possible, and the sessions can accommodate one individual, a couple, family or group. No prior experience with horses is required.
