“Heal Your Spirit Through The Soul Of A Horse”


Horse with client

Equine Insight is the Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy practice of Judy Weston-Thompson.

Why EFP over other classic psychotherapy treatments?

  • EFP provides a genuine interpersonal relationship between horse and participant. Our horses provide immediate, non-judgmental feedback to the client about their relationship with others and how they approach the world around them.
  • Learning the language of the herd (social intelligence) clients begin to develop insight into where they have been mis-communicating with, or misreading others.
  • Practiced all over the world, EFP is the perfect replacement and/or compliment to classic on-the-couch office therapy.
  • A licensed and practicing MFT since 1987, Judy has been incorporating EFP into her full-time practice since 2006.
  • Clinical evidence has proven the healing benefits of EFP for those suffering from depression and anxiety, addiction, trauma, and loss.
  • Our clients have also seen marked improvement in their symptoms of ADD/ADHD, eating disorders and learning disorders.
  • Studies continue to show how EFP promotes self-esteem and self-confidence while improving communication skills, impulse control and problem-solving skills.
