Registered Social Worker

Practicing Adult Counselling and Equine Facilitated Wellness

As a registered social worker, Laurie Cavan of River Edge Wellness with Horses in Wawa, ON offers professional adult counselling sessions that will include the option for Equine Facilitated Wellness (EFW). As a practitioner of EFW, she can help individuals reconnect to their own capacity for healing through engagement with horses. Laurie will provide both top-down and bottom-up approaches of counselling to assist the client’s healing process, and she will participate collaboratively with the horses of the EFW program. The top-down approach engages the intellectualizing of the individual’s issues whereas the bottom-up approach incorporates a present-moment focus that engages with the body. The client will always set the pace, and their safety is of prime consideration. The EFW experience can be both active and reflective as well as experiential.
