What happens when people seeking support are viewed as normal human beings who are going through difficult times? When we honestly care about others and genuinely invest the time to attempt to understand the hardships they face? When we embrace the idea that people can get over “mental illness” and invite others within a person’s community to join in the acknowledgment of a person’s strengths and capacity to heal? We see a person.
A horse ranch to heal and find meaningful recovery
Horses create a therapeutic setting of natural and healing relationships as conversations form between clients and their therapists.
Clients and therapists conversations evolve naturally and organically around horses and witnessing horse activity. Through the eyes of a horse there is no prejudice, no judgment, no psychological jargon. They exude love; it is that simple!
In our research clients’ report “feeling like they weren’t having therapy” was paramount in their journey to change.
Now I See A Person Institute (NISAPI) continues to support our communities, especially District 12, SA 2, helping to resolve and treat teenagers and their families that have been victims of residential care facilities and support #BreakingCodeSilence. We will be returning two days a week to the ranch or our satellite facility in April 2021. For now NISAPI is offering telephonic and virtual sessions for individual and family therapy, partner relational therapy, group therapy, life coaching & family life coaching, mediation, and virtual supervised visitation. Our research since March reflects similar high success rates as with the use of the horses. The horses are waiting to be used as co-therapist and can be seen via zoom.
More about our Program
Come and meet the Horses
Horses at Now I See a Person Institute are treated with the same level of love, respect and individual care that we treat our human clients.
Our horses are viewed as cotherapists as vital or maybe even more important than the program therapists!
