Horses Helping People

Bridgwater Support Services, LLC was founded under it’s original name, A Leg Up On Life, LLC in 2007.  This change was prompted by a shift in the supportive mental health services we provide and our philosophy of that support being a bridge from where you are now, to where you would like to be.  Allow our programs and services to be the path to reaching your goals in a non traditional mental health setting.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)/Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an opportunity to partner with the treatment team and horses as a process toward change and emotional growth.  It is experiential in nature and solution focused, creating an opportunity to learn about yourself and others by participating in activities with horses. 

The solution focused, experiential nature, allows clients to find their own solutions to problems.  This process allows for deeper meaning and understanding of behaviors, patterns, and beliefs, by processing the outcome of the activity with the team of facilitators which consists of a mental health professional and an equine specialist.  Clients have the unique opportunity to try out new behaviors and attitudes in a non judgmental environment. 

Through EAP/EAL, Bridgewater Support Services addresses a variety of mental health, personal growth, and learning needs including:

Relationships Communication           ADHD/ADD
