About Equine Empowerment

EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) and EAL (Equine Assisted Learning)


Equine Empowerment  is an innovative treatment from Pure Empowerment Psychology, it provides opportunities to grow and heal through activities with horses. This unique program is developed under the EAGALA model.

Professional experiential therapy that works.

The EAGALA Model is a distinct experience-based, team-approach framework designed to empower clients to analyze their situations, make connections, and find their own solutions through personal and physical experiences. Over the past 17 years, EAGALA clients have reported that they have been able to change and grow more effectively and quickly than through traditional approaches.


We were delighted to have a site in 2018  at Epsom Pavilion at Equitana during November (also National Psychology Week) (site #556) at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds. Rachael met many people and had the opportunity to discuss with attendees the EAGALA model and the many benefits of participating in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.

Booking times: 10am, 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm (located near Euroa).

To book call 0413 819 558 (and arrange an initial screening appointment).


On Saturday 19th May we held our first Open Day for our new Equine Assisted Therapy program. 

This was your first chance to come along and enjoy  information about this equine therapy program (underpinned by the EAGALA model) 

Thanks to Trix Pix Photography for capturing our day, Julieanne’s cards for all occasions and Jamie Kubeil for baking lovely scones (for Royal Devonshire tea in the paddock), Libby Seach for helping with registrations, Claire Horder (for working with me today), the attendees and last but not least, the horses

Here are some beautiful pictures taken by Trix Pix Photography of the days events:














We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
