Approved Sessions and Consultations

To enhance your integration of the learning in your work with clients and equines, a number of individuals have been pre‑approved to provide consultation support and personal sessions. These personal sessions are educational in nature and do not constitute formal psychotherapy, unless you decide to embark on a process of formal psychotherapy with a particular provider.

Double Duty Hours

EQUUSOMA® pre-requisite hours that are completed with SETI-approved session providers at your current level of SE™ training might also count towards your required hours for the Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner certificate (if you are attending as an SE™ student, so long as the provider is approved for your current level).

Conversely, sessions and consultations completed for the Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner certificate might count towards the EQUUSOMA® Practitioner certificate, so long as the provider also meets the requirements listed here.

Pre-requisite hours that are completed for EQUUSOMA® training might also count towards the certification requirements of other EAPL programs (for e.g., certification programs that require individuals to explore other models of EAPL as part of their learning or to attend sessions or workshops in EAPL for their own personal growth).
