Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I see my role as a therapist to support you through challenges by allowing you to increase self-awareness, healthy coping mechanisms, process traumatic events while also finding ways that best suit your needs.

As an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist, with Spirit and Sultana, our horses, I strive to offer you an environment that is accepting, reflecting, liberating and healing. I also offer EMDR with Spirit and Sultana but I can also travel to you if you wish me to work with your horses.

As a Dramatherapist, I can offer you a level of therapeutic work that is metaphorical and rich in the tapestry of self-expression. With arts, we could explore any issues that might feel otherwise overwhelming.
