A huge thank you to Buckingham-based TCS Biosciences who contacted us recently to tell us they had nominated us in their charity raffle and raised £500 for Equilore.

We are so grateful for donations like these as they allow us to continue to work with people who will really benefit from our equine facilitated psychotherapy sessions.

Find Equilore on Oxfordshire’s Family Information Directory

Equilore is now listed on Oxfordshire County Council’s Family Information Directory, and hoping to welcome any children and families who feel they might benefits from equine therapy in the future.

Working with horses provides an alternative way to help process and make sense of what we are going through. No previous experience with horses necessary and there is no riding involved.

The sessions are run by a highly trained and experienced practitioner who is a chartered Psychologist with a MSc in Neuropsychology, PhD in Clinical Neuroscience and a Diploma in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy.

We work with the horses from the ground (i.e. no riding) on principles of mindfulness and acceptance, but will also run skills-based sessions addressing assertivess, focus, taking responsibility, empathy, calmness (yes calmness is a skill!), planning, communication and engagement. We provide a safe and profesional service where people can grow and enhance their self-awareness, confidence, emotional wellbeing and acquire new skills.
