I am offering outdoor counselling in my lovely garden. Nature can help us to reconnect with our senses and emotions, as well as aiding relaxation and a sense of calm. We will adhere to current Government guidelines regarding social distancing.
There are plenty of options to sit, some involving steps. Please wear suitable footwear..
In case of adverse weather, we can be under cover.
Alternatively, please wear waterproof clothing. An umbrella may be useful to bring, but I have some available here.
I am thrilled to have such lovely reviews this month from both Equestrian Trade News and Therapy Today. It is so exciting that this book appeals to both the horse world and the mental health profession! I learned so much more writing it: a real learning curve which has given me a greater understanding of my horses, and myself as a human being, horse owner and rider.
I offer on-line counselling if this is preferable for face-to-face at these difficult times.
An introductory chat on the phone for up to 20 minutes is free of charge.
Shorter sessions are available: they last for half an hour and cost £20.
I use Whatsapp or Zoom. Normally, sessions last 50 minutes and cost £40. Email me to book a time and day for your first session, and we can then schedule in further sessions.You can pay by bank transfer, credit card or Paypal.
As the Countryside Counsellor, I fully understand that rural life is not easy and comes with a whole range of stressful situations. Solo working can be lonely, with no-one to share your fears and concerns..
With long term stress, anxiety can take hold, affecting your self-confidence and self-worth. Fear is hard to admit to yourself, but it has a far-reaching effect on handling and riding horses and other animals, and affect personal relationships..
As an equestrian professional myself for many years, I understand this world and how tough it can be, especially in the long, cold and dark winter months. Long days with little rest can have a negative affect on mood and wellbeing.
Losing a beloved horse or pet can be devastating, as can taking the decision to end their life if they are suffering. Letting go is so difficult, and finding support through this dreadful experience really helps.
Coping with Injury
Personal injury is common, and can be hard to deal with if you are a fit and active person. Physical jobs such as vets, farriers, farmers, horse trainers, for example, demand physical fitness and stamina: injury can knock this for six, and the mental impact of not being able to do what you need be very stressful.
