I am a chartered Psychologist with a Diploma in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy. At Equilore, I run equine assisted interventions. This means that I work with horses (equines) to help people for whom talking therapy has not been successful. This can be for various reasons such as it has been difficult to open up about your feelings and emotions, or cognitive difficulties (such as memory, concentration or language) prevent you from talking about your feelings, perhaps you have an autism diagnosis or it may be hard to trust people. 

I  provide a safe and profesional service where people can grow and enhance their self-awareness, confidence, emotional wellbeing and acquire new skills. We work with the horses from the ground to build skills in assertivess, focus, taking responsibility, empathy, calmness, planning, communication and engagement. Please contact me for more information or for an informal chat about what services may be most suitable for you. Along with my horses I am here to help you improve your understanding of your personal journey and life experiences.

Notes

As a Chartered Psychologist (British Psychological Society) and a qualified Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist (LEAP) I work with horses to help people learn more about themselves, either as a coaching tool or through psychological treatment. Check out my LinkedIn profile for more information. 

Very brief about my previous work experience. I have a BSc in neuropsychology, an MSc in rehabilitation psychology and a PhD in Clinical Neuroscience. I have worked with a variety of different mental health problems with young people, adolescents and adults with an often complex mixture of mental and physical disabilities such as Autism, Down’s syndrome, ADHD/ADD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression/ Low mood, Anxiety, Trauma, Abuse, Neuropsychological difficulties, Acquired Brain Injury, and Epilepsy. Alongside my studies I have worked as a carer with young people and adults with learning difficulties and autism spectrum syndrome. I also worked as an assistant psychologist at the National Society of Epilepsy where, alongside clinical work, I researched the effectiveness of memory rehabilitation. During my PhD I investigated different symptom clusters within Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). For several years I worked at the University of Exeter on a research project into young people who had experienced a history of abuse. During a further project I highlighted the gap in neuropsychological services in the NHS for children with Acquired Brain Injury and their families.
