Equine Therapy EPI Faculty
EPI Model EAP Practitioner
Mental Health Social Worker
I’m an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and with my herd of 5 horses and ponies, puppies and cats, I work in private practice in the Hunter Valley in NSW.
Along with being an EPI trained EAP, I am also registered with Medicare and the NDIS. My work background includes roles in Child Protection, Out of Home Care, investigations, carer training and assessment, staff training, compliance and practice quality.
I work mostly with children and young people who have special needs, trauma, mental health challenges and a range of disabilities. I generally offer individual sessions during the school terms and I also run The Horse Wisdom program for groups during the school holidays.
I am very grateful to have been invited to be a supervisor with the EPI. I’m able to offer sessions in person (to those local), over the phone or through zoom/facetime.
I hope to be able to support people to work creatively with children and young people, implementing the Horse Wisdom program, with both individuals and small groups and offering our amazing EPI model of Equine Assisted Therapy and Learning.
I’m also open to sharing my experiences of starting out in private practice (which was a little scary after so many years working for government and non-government agencies) and navigating the ‘wonderful world’ of the NDIS. Please let me know if I can assist and I look forward to getting to know everyone along the way.
