EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY
Hisani, meaning kindness in Swahili, is set on 1000 acres of land where our horses can graze over the beautiful Lolldaiga hills of Laikipia, Kenya.
Just forty minutes outside of Nanyuki, It is a beautiful person and animal centred family home where we offer clients the opportunity of spending time with our horses and other animals. Our horses graze on the property as one large herd and they have as much freedom as they like.
Our horses are integrated as a partner in the therapeutic process. Horses in psychotherapy sessions bear witness to whatever is presented to them and they respond, often choosing to engage in ways that are intuitively helpful. They give us feedback through body language, mirroring what they understand about clients deepest feelings and intentions.
