One to One
We offer One to One sessions ranging from 60 to 90 minutes, that aim to meet your specific objectives. Together we will look at any issues you maybe experiencing and with the assitance of the horses we will work towards solving these problems. I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor which enables me to adjust and be flexible towards the clients needs. Some theories look at behaviour patterns whilst others look more in depth at what happened in the past and how you have carried that into your life in the present. As a Integrative Counsellor I will explore where you are at today and how we can bring emotions and patterns into the awareness. Together we can explore those and look at the associated emotions.
All One to One Counselling includes assessment and a formulated psychological treatment plan with evaluation charts to track the success of the treatment plan and outcome goals.
