Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT)

  • A Psychologist uses AAT in addition to traditional therapeutic processes and techniques.

 

  • AAT uses the human animal bond in goal directed interventions during a treatment session.

 

  • Creates a unique opportunity for a client to engage in an experiential (learning through experience) counselling environment and provides a multi-sensory experience.

 

  • Uses the human-animal bond to help reduce stress for the client, build rapport and increase motivation.

 

  • Builds on the Psychophysiological (interaction between mind & body) and Psychosocial (interaction of social factors and an individuals thoughts and behaviours).

Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT)

  • EAT addresses a variety of mental health conditions and human developmental needs. 

 

  • EAT is based on experiential work, meaning that clients are actively participating and learning through their own experiences.

 

  • A combination of traditional therapeutic processes and ground based equine activities are used with individual clients or groups.

 

  • Horses are used in the therapy session as they are effective at confronting behaviours and attitudes, and are able to observe and respond to non -verbal communication.

 

  • Traditional therapeutic techniques are used by the Psychologist during and after each session to facilitate the clients ability to process their feelings, behaviours and insights about their own lives.

Psychological Assessment

A psychological assessment is usually recommended when a child is having difficulties in school. A psychological assessment begins with a parent interview. This is then followed by a number of psychometric testing sessions, including assessment of intelligence, academic achievement, memory ability, attentional processes, and behavioural and social/emotional functioning. The results of the assessment are shared in a meeting with the parents and recommendations are provided.
