Lisa Palmer (BSW)

Bachelor of Social Work
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning (EAP/L)

I am  a Social Worker with 28 years of experience working with children, adolescents and their families in the area  of trauma, including sexual assault  and  family violence; youth offending; vocational rehabilitation and clinical mental health.

In addition to EAP/L  I have training and experience in evidence-based mental health therapies such as CBT, ACT and DBT.

I am a new service in this area  and as such will be exploring the nature of the service I will be providing. I am particularly interested in supporting riders in their relationship with horses;  the area of  mental health; and organizational leadership programs.

However I am  happy  to provide  services to people above the ages of 13 years and over  with any goals they identify at this time.
