Equine Assisted Therapy at ChangeWays helps children and adults struggling with their mental health.


We offer psychotherapy with the help of horses for adults, families, children and adolescents. Our centres in Cumbria and Scotland cater for people in Dumfries & Galloway, Northern England, Scotland and beyond.

By interacting with horses in this unique form of animal therapy, people can overcome issues such as depression or anxiety. Horses are highly sensitive to their environment which helps them to tune in to others.

In a safe and supportive environment, we can help you to see the bigger picture and find your own solutions to move forward. Taking time for yourself allows you to re-evaluate a situation or problem. Take the time and space to reconnect to you.

Equine Assisted Therapy for Adults

Are you struggling with overwhelming emotions and feeling stressed out in life? Do you keep repeating the same patterns in relationship that leaves you feeling stuck? Recognising the problem is the first step in finding a solution. Through this team approach, you gain clarity into what’s not working in your life, and create opportunities through the horses to try out new ways.

Children & Young People

Children show their stress and anxiety through behaviours which can be hard to understand. Aggression and defiance can end up in repeated arguments with no solution which can cause family tension and stress.

Your teenager may be spending more time in their room and struggling with peer relationships. Children may not be ready or able to talk about what they are struggling with.

Through experiences with horses, Equine Assisted Therapy can help build resilience and insights in children. And it’s fun.Call us now to see how we can help your child.

We use the Eagala Model of equine therapy which does not involve riding. You don’t need any previous experience with horses. Equine assisted child therapy sessions are held weekly or fortnightly and last for up to one hour. Longer sessions are available.
