We walk alongside without judgement
Talk can be hard, proceed at your own pace. Trust needs to be found and reflected during therapy. Science is learning that our mind literally changes as we interact in our world. The gentleness of a horses response can initiate relaxation with a feeling of being safe. We need to feel safe to have hope.
