JSA Psychotherapy welcomes new therapy horse
This week we are celebrating the arrival of a new four-legged member to the JSA team. Jack, show name Silver Caesar, is a 16.3 hand Irish draught horse. Having come to live at the same equine facility as our other therapy horses Milo, Patch, Balli and Polly Panda, Jack will soon be joining them to participate in our Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) sessions.
Despite his imposing size, Jack is an extremely gentle and even-tempered soul. At its core, EAP involves a client being able to anchor themselves to their animal companion to help regulate their emotions and allow the empathic creatures to become a non-judgemental mirror for self-reflection. Jack already promises to provide a reassuring, resilient presence to help guide our clients through the therapeutic process.
