Welcome to our website.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is yet another method of psychotherapy which has been developed by incorporating horses to facilitate and promote health, wellness and change in people who are not functioning effectively within their daily lives.

EAPISA was founded by Kim Kidson, a registered senior Clinical Psychologist. EAPISA is a professional body that strives to maintain the strictest ethical and legal standards as required by the constitution of the Health Professions Council of South Africa. This is achieved by support and training on an ongoing basis to both the horse specialists and the registered psychologists in their respective fields of expertise. This ensures that these professionals are adequately trained to promote an effective and professional service to all clients. This training is professionally regulated by the constitution of EAPISA.

There is an established committee with regional branches in some of the provinces. The committee consists of registered and practising psychologists and horse specialists. The head office is situated at Autumn Leaves Farm in the Hartzenbergfontein Estate, south of Johannesburg.


Meet the team.

I've completed the bronze level for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and will be doing the silver level this year 2021. I am currently studying an honors degree in Health Sciences through the Open University.

I've ridden and worked with horses for 13 years. I have a passion for therapy and helping others, and EAPISA helps me accomplish this. I have job shadowed and volunteered at therapy riding schools, therapy dance schools, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, to better my understanding of individuals. I have a goal to combine dancing, physiotherapy and horses as one therapy for different individuals including special needs.
