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.
