We offer a friendly atmosphere in which to explore your personal development through the power of horses.
We also offer educational services and continuing professional development for individuals and teams.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
EFP stands for Equine Faciliated Psychotherapy. EFP is a form of psychotherapy.
EFP works with the horse as a partner 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. We recommend a course of 8 -10 sessions although clients may find that they need fewer or more sessions to suit them.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things.
Usually it will take a number of counselling sessions before therapy starts to make a difference.
Equine Assisted Learning
EFL stands for Equine Facilitated Learning.
EFL involves working alongside the horses as an opportunity 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. Sessions can be offered to indivduals, groups and business.

What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy?
The purpose of clinical supervision is to provide a safe and confidential environment for therapists to reflect on and discuss their work and their personal and professional responses to their work. This is a requirement of continued membership of professional bodies.
I offer supervision from a relational perspective, with a focus on a collaborative supervisory alliance. I am an integrative therapist, and integrate Humanistic approaches in order to offer a therapeutic approach that fits the client, rather than expecting them to fit the therapy. I also work within an equine facilitated approach, again underpinned by integrating Humanistic approaches to therapy. I take this approach into my supervisory practice in order support continuity and authenticity within my practice.
Supervision can take place indoors or through equine facilitated approaches.
