The EAGALA Model

There are many paths and models to Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Personal Development. Windows To My Soul chose to build the foundation of our program in  the EAGALA model because: 

  • All sessions are facilitated by a qualified Mental Health Professional and Equine Specialist
  • All work with horses is done on the ground (no riding)
  • The philosophy is solution-oriented - allowing the clients to discover the best solutions for themselves
  • Facilitators adhere to the EAGALA Code of Ethics
  • Certification and ongoing education for Mental Health Professionals and Equine Specialists is required
  • There is a commitment to evidence based results and research
  • This is experiential learning at its best
  • The results are amazing and quantifiable

A Life That Matters

Windows To My Soul was founded out of a deeply held belief that we all desire and need to live a connected, purpose filled, relationship-rich life in which we contribute to our families and community in meaningful ways.   We know that work and play with horses through Equine Assisted Personal Development and Psychotherapy is an effective way to learn the life and mental health  skills necessary to meet those desires.
