Level 5 Certificate in Equine Assisted Therapy
Mon, 3 Apr 2017, 17:00 – Fri, 7 Apr 2017, 17:00 BST
“It is a highly professional, evidence based and rigorous program with the right blend of experiential and theory. Highest standard of faculty with depth of experience, academic background and wisdom.
"It is a transformational program both for the facilitators that undertake it and for the work that they will take out to the wider personal and business community.”
“The training should be a pre-requisite for anyone entering into the field of counseling and therapy. This program did not only give me a certificate in EFL, it did not just give me a professional accreditation to practicing a life’s dream; it taught me how to do it, all the while discovering the person buried under layers of life’s circumstances."
"This course for me has been the perfect balance of equine ethology, psychotherapy, in depth neuroscience and that touch of magic that defies description that the horses bring in varying forms to each and every session. I have been on a journey not just of learning more about this incredible field but of huge personal growth in a very safe held environment."

This course is for those wishing to professionally master the art of working 1:1 with an individual using the IFEAL Equine Facilitated Human Development (EFHD) Method, a behaviour change process for human development, growth and learning. This is an acredited qualification in equine therapy.

The modules are delivered in three blocks of five days onsite training with the IFEAL Q faculty.

There is a high student to faculty ratio, typically at a 2:1 faculty member to student ratio, ensuring you get the 1:1 time you need.
In addition to this, one of the faculty becomes your dedicated mentor, who you have four 1:1 calls with during the course. You are also in a mentorship group with your mentor and at least 1 other student for tutorials and two group calls.
There are also opportunities for private mentorship sessions with Kathleen Barry Ingram, co-founder of The Epona Apprenticeship programme.
