Equine Sessions

Graceful Therapy pairs with Mane Trail Stables in Winfield, IL to offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy! We utilize the EAGALA method- Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association. This approach is collaborative and incorporates a licensed Mental Health Professional and Equine Specialist working together with horses and clients as equal partners in an experiential process that empowers life-changing outcomes. 

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy can include grooming, leading the equines, and various ground activities, and therapeutic interventions. This form of therapy does not involve riding.

We have therapists with openings for equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions, but these sessions fill up quickly!

If you are interested but not currently a client of Graceful Therapy, fill out our regular inquiry form to get paired with a therapist that has openings for equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions!
