Registered Psychotherapist, Master's in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy
In order to understand ourselves and our minds on a deeper level, I believe therapy can be the path to attaining mental clarification. We all have been exposed to situations and events that have left us feeling confused. It is vital to delve into our current and past issues, unpack our thoughts, and resolve areas that impact our current way of living. Therapy can help us to see our problems with a fresh and non-judgemental lens while allowing us to become aware of our old patterns. Through therapy, we can learn innovative coping skills to enhance our lives. I believe in forming an authentic therapeutic relationship with respect to the client’s cultural background. With a suitable therapeutic approach that tailors’ individual needs, one can face covert feelings with clarity. Therapy is a safe and non-judgemental space where individuals can unpack their deepest emotions and learn to process them effectively. Therapy can enable you to get deeper into inner child work and parenting yourself to heal your trauma wounds and move forward in life.

Horses are great therapists because they give immediate feedback. Research shows positive physical and psychological results from humans interacting with horses. These include, but are not limited to , decreased blood pressure and heart rate, lower levels of stress, reduced feelings of tension, anxiety, anger and hostility, as well as increased levels of beta-endorphins, and beneficial feelings of self -esteem, empowerment, patience and trust. Often clients experiencing anxiety and ocd have difficulty relating to other human beings, and will not accept closeness with another, but they will with horses. There is a bond that develops over time with equine - assisted therapy that is profound and natural . This bond helps with affection, assertiveness, confidence , empathy,self-control, responsibility, unconditional acceptance. This type of therapy is experiential and provides opportunities for metaphorical learning. Using metaphors , either in activities or discussion, is an effective technique for working with individuals. Non-verbal communication with a Horse helps clients better understand themselves and how they relate with others in the world.

They say our greatest weakness lies in giving up! We have all been there. I decided that if life was going to be difficult, I would become its greatest “warrior” and teach others to do the same. Too often we use our armour to hide our inner selves, rather than see it as our strength which only comes from taking a risk, facing our fears, taking a step forward, and learning that every battle is won with wisdom. I am here to empower you to take that chance on yourself — your mind is a powerful force, but you are its master. Through various forms of therapy, one can explore different perspectives, coping skills, and motivators to establish better relationships; self-esteem and self-direction; deal with complicated family or couple dynamics; face a significant crisis or transition; manage substance use or addiction; and collaboratively make cognitive and behavioral changes to better emotional, mental, and even physical health!
