I am the Horse Specialist to provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), and Riding Assisted Philosophy (RAP). I have the horses and facilities to provide a safe environment to get the most out of this experiential therapy/experience for you and your clients.
As the founder of RAP, Riding Assisted Philosophy with Greg Kersten's endorsement, I am now taking reservations for the "white seminar". I will be hosting in Montana April, 2010. Call for information.
Tiffany M. Garner, MS, LCPC, writes: "One of the tremendous opportunities afforded to me in my position as a therapist at YBGR was the possibility to utilize the EAP program and the very special talents of Leslie Mathews. Working with the horses is almost magical at times. Girls who would not normally trust and care and take responsibility for themselves seem to blossom when working initiatives with the horses. The learn to see themselves in the horses and in doing so, work through different issues via guiding the horses through individualized initiatives. Leslie and I have seen some amazing progress during our sessions. Progress I do not believe might have been reached as quickly or possibly even at all without EAP."
A parent of a youth after utilizing EAP for family therapy writes: "I have used this horse therapy in my everyday life, in dealing with my 3 sons and my brother, and also I have used these experiences in my job dealing with my fellow coworkers. Thank you."
