“I just finished reading Leigh Shambo’s book, The Listening Heart, and wanted to make sure you are aware of this really fantastic reference. Leigh does such a wonderful job of describing the therapeutic process and how horses can assist with attaining therapeutic goals… I have seen many models of EFP/L and this one really stands out. Leigh grounds the intuitive, energetic work with horses into solid, research based theory and has come up with something outstanding.” Stacey Carter TRI, ES Salisbury, NC

EFP is an experiential therapy in which horses are employed to facilitate emotional growth and learning for humans. HEAL promotes through public education, supports with scholarship and program subsidies and studies EFP efficacy and supporting science.
HEAL founder and lead therapist Leigh Shambo, MSW, LMHC has developed the HEAL Model™ of EFP, based on scientifically validated principles from the fields of neuroscience and psychology (human and animal). The HEAL Model™ teaches core skills for navigating and enhancing relationships, while strengthening autonomy and awareness of self. The horses are respected as sensitive and intelligent communicators who may guide the process in unique ways!
