Mental Health Therapist
Marijane has been practicing as a licensed mental health professional for nearly a decade in an office setting. She is looking to evolve her practice into one incorporating equines.
She would like to earn CE credits, join a community of other equine assisted therapy professionals, and begin the powerful work of Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TF-EAP), developed by Natural Lifemanship®.
What drew Marijane to Natural Lifemanship®?
There are various training options that offer CE credits and give her a framework for how to incorporate horses ethically, responsibly, and in a trauma-informed manner. The emphasis on connection and relationship is grounded in the relational neurosciences—offering her a “why” to support her decision making.
Gretchen wants to use her experience with horses to support others in their healing—as a partner to a therapist or other practitioner doing Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) or Equine Assisted Learning (EAL).
Which path did Gretchen choose?
Trainings to learn and feel the power of horsemanship when relationships are equitable, secure, and flourishing—an essential skill for an NL certified equine professional.
Kathy already incorporates equines into her life-coaching practice when she does equine assisted coaching, but wants to expand her knowledge and skillset to include the NL process of Trauma Informed Equine Assisted Learning (TI-EAL).
What’s different about NL for Kathy?
There is a greater emphasis on how one’s body and mind are connected.
Horses are seen as sentient beings and individuals —partners in the process.
NL offers a framework for making healthy relational choices.
Personal growth is an integral part of all professional development offerings.
We would love to walk with you as you evolve your life and practice.
