Emma Leckie BA (Hons) MSc MA MBACP
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 the human-animal bond. I also utilise mindfulness and creativity in my sessions and the powerful affects of being at one with nature. As such much of the sessions are conducted outside.
Training, qualifications & experience
Emma Leckie, BA Hons, MSc, MA Psychotherapy and Counselling. Registered Member MBACP.
I am an Integrative Counsellor and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist, qualified to Masters level in Psychotherapy and Counselling. I am a senior LEAP Practitioner (Leading Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) (www.leapequine.com) and a Registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)(www.bacp.co.uk).
I have experience of working with children, young people and adults. My experience includes working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-harming, suicidal thoughts, low self confidence, low self esteem, ADHD, behavioural problems and the affects of bullying.
I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and have worked for a number of years with young people who have been excluded from mainstream education as a senior coach at The Seeds Of Change (www.theseedsofchange.co.uk) using horses to facilitate learning and personal development. I also have experience working with young people in a school setting when working with the Banbury Young Homelessness Project (www.byhp.org.uk).
Working outside with horses and other animals allows people of any age to enjoy counselling in a natural, therapeutic environment often conducive to healing.
