LEAP was invited to take part in Simon Thomas' series in the Pursuit of Happiness for 'This Morning' on ITV. The series focused on mental health and well being, it was Simon's first step to return back to presenting after tragically losing his wife in 2018. Simon was aware of the benefits on his mental health of being outdoors and joined the LEAP team at Squirrel Wood equestrian in Norfolk to experience equine facilitated therapies. Squirrel Wood is run by Sarah's longtime friend Lisa Davies, who is passionate about EFL and working with young people.

Kylie and Kate, who are based in Luxembourg, have been in touch to share their news that they have had an article published about their work by one of Luxembourg's premier english speaking publications. This has generated a lot of interest in their practice which offers a blend of Equine Facilitated Learning, Horsemanship, Coaching and Mindfulness to English speaking children and adults in Luxembourg.
Well done Kylie and Kate!
Philippa Williams, Equine Enlightenment
Philippa has contacted us as she has just had a second piece of work published with the Association for Children and Adolescent Mental Health on Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy as an alternative intervention for young people who struggle to engage in clinical, talking settings. This is really exciting news and as Philippa says, 'it is bringing the awareness of the ‘mainstream’ mental health audience to EFP'.
Well done Philippa!
