Promoting Independence with therapy

Compassion, Connection and Independence

Welcome to Bundaberg Equine Assisted Therapy & Counselling Services

Bundaberg Equine Therapy, delivering Equine Assisted Therapy and Counselling Services in Bundaberg & the Wide Bay area. Our services are facilitated by a skilled and experienced mental health professional, used to helping people who are suffering from any number of different mental health difficulties. Equine Assisted Therapy is a complimentary therapeutic service, used in partnership with more traditional treatments, offering a very different experience to that of traditional talk therapy.

Equine Assisted Therapy brings people outside the normal clinical setting into the great Australian outdoors, giving our clients the opportunity to use all their senses while learning and processing through their emotional challenges.

Equine Assisted Therapy is equally effective with children and teens as it is with adult clients. Children and adults alike can experience challenges such as trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and many more. The environment offered as part of an Equine Assisted Therapy session can feel less threatening and more inviting than a traditional therapy office environment.

Equine Assisted Therapy offers a safe space for clients to explore deep emotional hurts and painful experiences, offering an environment for clients to openly share their thoughts. Having the horse present can offer a sense of peace, without the threat of bias or judgment of their emotional experiences.

Horses also require work, care and attention. Tending to their daily care requirements such as the provision of food and water, exercise, grooming etc can provide a very therapeutic experience for clients. The simple acts of caring and nurturing something else can also help build empathy.

Andrew really listened

After my first counsellor resigned and I was left searching for another, Andrew was recommended to me by a friend who knew him through his Equine Therapy experiences. I was at probably the worst point when my life had just been completely turned upside down. I remember my first appointment with Andrew, I was very anxious about whether or not Andrew would be the right person to help me sort out all my problems. During that very first session, my anxiety started to lift, not only by Andrew’s ability to not only listen to me  and my problems, but he also showed he understood my situation. I really appreciate Andrews ability  and honesty allows you to see things differently, without telling you might be wrong. I continue to see Andrew and would highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering from anxiety, or as in my case, PTSD.

When can I go back?

When can I go back to see Andrew? Andrew was able to reach “I” at her level. He was patient, kind and responded with understanding. Andrew was able to read body and verbal cues to very quickly make the environment feel safe and non- threatening. Working with the animals made the therapy less threatening and connections easier to make. Miss “I” cannot wait to visit again!

Thanks for the help

I always considered myself to be a pretty good rider, I had been riding since I was 8, so what else was there to learn? right?

A friend and I organised to do some mustering on a property with the owner a couple of months ago. We had a fantastic time, although when it was all said and done, the owner was having a chat with us over a couple of beers and suggested to us both that we should consider getting some horsemanship lessons because he said we were giving our horses mixed messages with our hands and legs. After doing a bit of research, we lucked on to Andrew and hooked up for a couple of lessons to see how we went.

Well, he was right. After just a couple of lessons with Andrew, we now understand what he was talking about and I must admit, riding is a lot easier when you know the right messages to give your horse. Thanks mate, we had a great time and learnt heaps.

Thanks mate, I had a great day today. Was nice to get out and just go for a leisurely ride through the bush with some really nice people. Hope to do it again soon, will be keeping an eye out for the next one.
