What is the difference between EFP and EFL?
EFP is Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and is practiced by someone with a mental health qualification, and is a form of psychotherapy. EFP uses equine-facilitated activities to explore the way a client sees and relates to themselves and others, their patterns of behaviour and survival as well as their gifts and strengths, and may include the exploration of past experiences and traumas. EFP is a form of psychotherapy and relies upon the therapeutic knowledge and experience gained through a mental health qualification.
EFL is Equine Facilitated Learning and can be practiced by people from many spheres of life including teachers, coaches and professionals from the equine industry. EFL uses equine-facilitated activities as a tool for self development and education, with a focus on the present moment. Skills include non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking, problem-solving, leadership, teamwork, relationship skills, confidence and resilience.
