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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
