I am an Equine Assisted Therapist who runs The Haven Equine Assisted Therapy Centre, which is situated in the stunning Southdowns' National Park. Here adults and young people form powerful connections with horses and work through their emotional challenges in a gentle, fun, but highly effective way. I am passionate about my work and adapt every session to meet each individual's unique needs.
There is also the option of simply having counselling in a tranquil setting at one with nature; walking around the beautiful grounds or relaxing in the cosy log cabin.
Please do take a look at The Haven's website and make any enquiries through the contact page or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Taster sessions are available at half price to see if it is something that you might like to pursue, or simply arrange a free visit and chat.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
