"The aim of any therapist is to make a person feel they are accepted without judgement for the unique individual they are.
I have yet to see anyone achieve this as quickly or as consistently as a horse."
An Individual session lasts for 1 hour, I take referrals but you can privately arrange these sessions.
The sessions cost £25 and are arranged after an initial telephone assessment.
I work with groups of up to four children or adults. There is no upper age limit but children must be over 5 years old. Sessions match ability and pace of each visitor.
Ring me to discuss costs.
