How Equine Therapy Can Help You
My approach helps you find freedom from anxiety depression and trauma. I use innovative and evidence-based techniques combining body intelligence and talking therapy to help you process your challenges safely. I establish a baseline of where you are. I teach you ways to manage emotions and calm yourself if you feel unsafe. You can then try an Equine Therapy session or further 1-1 therapy followed by processing with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

How Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Works
- Our first step is to make sure you feel safe so that your fears cannot overwhelm you. We do this with Somatic Safe Place Imagery and Body Scans, allowing you to reclaim a sense of safety. For stabilisation and regulation we offer you the chance to spend time with our horses who by nature can help you align with their inner state of calm therefore making you feel safe and heard.
- Only once we have achieved this will we move on to processing your fears/trauma. Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behaviour Therapy will help you transform your negative beliefs into positive beliefs and approach your challenges in a different way.
- The last phase is Post-Trauma Regrowth, the key to integrating your learnings into your life to look forward to a more positive future. Together we will build a Resilience Plan to help you cope better and open up exciting new freedom.
