Equine facilitated Counselling

Equine Facilitated Counselling is a collaborative effort between a registered therapist/counsellor and at times with a horse professional. We facilitate individual sessions or group programmes.  Our work dovetails into community agencies and services that provide support for individuals, groups and whanau/families (including caregivers).

Individual Session


An initial meeting will take approximately 50 minutes and is held at Stable Hearts Facility Hastings - directions in our contact/location page. 

Our fees operate on a sliding scale. Treatment costs will depend largely on a proposed treatment plan that is developed in consultation with the client (and a social worker/counsellor / therapist / agency as agreed by client).  As an indication, costs for individual sessions vary between $30 - $120 and for group sessions between $30 - $85. Please be assured clients are under no obligation or pressure to undertake counselling or growth and learning programmes on completion of an initial consultation.


Equine facilitated counselling is especially effective for:

  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress)

  • Depression

  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks

  • Grief and Loss

  • Anger Management
