About me and my therapy practice
I have a private practice in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside where I work with individuals, families and groups of all ages. My work is facilitated by a long established herd of naturally kept horses and other animals. My way of working is relational and experiential, based on building a strong therapeutic relationship between my clients, myself and the horses; where clients can explore their issues safely but outside the usual confines of room-based therapy.
I firmly believe in the healing power of horses and the therapeutic benefits of being at one with nature. I combine this with an Integrative approach to meet each individual's needs; working together with clients to find the best way forward for them.
I enjoy working with people of all ages and have particular experience of working with people suffering from anxiety, depression, self-harming, trauma from childhood sexual abuse, low self-esteem, behavioural and relational problems and the effects of bullying.
I have a Master's Degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling and am a Registered Member of the BACP, whose Code of Ethics I adhere to. I am a LEAP Senior Practitioner (www.leapequine.com).
My first session
During the first session I provide an opportunity for clients to visit Mill Farm, meet with myself and the horses and gain a better understanding of Equine Facilitated Therapy and my way of working. This assessment session allows both clients and myself to make sure we feel comfortable working together and to plan future sessions if appropriate.
