Student Clinics

Experience Equine Assisted therapy

Our Student Clinics are where we offer individual sessions, group sessions and day retreats to our community. These sessions are facilitated by our EATA students who have been studying with us to become qualified EAMH practitioners, and have been in training for at least 12 months. All sessions are supervised by a qualified Therapist who is there to offer additional support for both the student and client when needed.

We offer opportunities for you to take time out to replenish and reconnect to yourself. We aim to surround you in an environment of support and connection so that you feel welcome and safe to try new things. During the Student Clinics we will gently encourage you to be yourself and step into all of who you are.

Giving back to the community

Our Student Clinics have helped over 100 individuals by giving them access to EAMH therapy services.

We continue to offer our services throughout the year during our Student Clinics.  Sessions are facilitated at our Gold Coast QLD, Galston NSW and Mt Evelyn VIC facilities.

We offer the following Free student clinic sessions:

The sessions will last between 60 minutes and will entail the students going through an intake process with you and then an equine assisted therapy session.

Equine assisted therapy sessions involve talking about how you feel, working on current issues that are arising in your life and working in close proximity to horses, possibly: touching them, brushing them, leading them or just hanging out with them.

The therapists that you will be working with have been training for the past year and know how to keep you safe throughout the session. Jane Faulkner the trainer and assessor or another qualified therapist, will also be there throughout the whole session to supervise and possibly come in at times to support you and the student.

These group sessions will involve the students facilitating a number of activities with you over 90 minutes. 

You will be in a group setting and the activities may include art therapy, equine assisted therapy, nature-based activities, mindfulness activities and group process. 

The group sessions are held for 90 minutes and often run over 3 workshops, one month apart.
