Therapy Horses

Franstrahan Member Posts: 898 Pioneering
I am starting therapy sessions with these, hopefully next week, or at least very soon. The horses help children and adults with autism. Dont know if all the centres nationwide are fully funded but this one I am going to is. I dont know if they help with depression and anxiety but I'm going to ask. I got the email from the company today, great timing, as I had just about given up finding any help and support. After contacting lots of organisations trying to get counselling for my problems, the horses came through! Couldn't be better as I'm a big animal lover, and this will probably work out better then having to deal with people (which I struggle with). Will update, once I get started, as to how things go. Really looking forward to it!
