At Blue Rein Ranch, we offer a blend of counselling and animal assisted therapy to help people heal from trauma and abuse, as well as cope with mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, ADHD, or grief.
About Animal Assisted Therapy A common symptom for those who are experiencing stress as a result of trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression or anything else is the inability to regulate the nervous system. This may include heightened startle responses, anxiety, panic, inability to relax, restlessness, digestive problems, emotional flooding, chronic pain, sleeplessness, lethargy, exhaustion, dissociation, etc. People who experience one or more of these symptoms often blame themselves for feeling the way they do, which in turn, can lead to extensive feelings of depression and more anxiety. At Blue Rein Ranch, animals (especially horses), are used to help people regulate their unregulated nervous system, and to restore the emotional-physical balance required to heal. New pathways of arousal, emotion, and meaning are developed, expanding the window of tolerance for emotion as well as the capacity to develop healthy relationships. Broken and damaged attachment bonds are healed, allowing clients to trust again, form new attachment bonds with others, and move forward to live rich and meaningful lives. No horse experience is required in order to engage in AAT. All session are carefully paced by the therapist to meet client needs and comfort level. Contact us today for more information.
