Healing with Horses


In November, HELP teams were honoured with an invitation from a client to attend a Healing with Horses session.

Healing with Horses is a way of healing grief and trauma with the land and animals and incorporates teachings from mentors, Elders, and the leader’s experiences as a residential school survivor. In some Indigenous cultures, horses are seen as natural healers. HELP’s client had asked for assistance addressing his grief, and invited us to go along with him, as HELP has been his biggest support. It’s amazing to see that our HELP team has built a strong foundation of trust with this client to the point where he felt safe to invite the HELP team members to experience his healing journey.
