EQUINE FACILITATED  THERAPY 


Christina Benei Equine Facilitated Therapy

 

Hi and welcome to my site. I am Christina. I'm a Qualified and Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the British Association of Behavioural Cognitive Psychotherapist. I have experience in working in the NHS Mental Health and within the Private sector .

As a CBT Therapist, I am also trained in Family Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal therapy, Compassionate Focused Therapy and Mindfulness and have experience  in specialists services including Eating Disorders .

My work as a therapist and my love of horses has given me the ideal opportunity to combine my skills and training with my passion for horses. I am a member of Intelligent Horsemanship which specialises in Natural Horsemanship and I use their training methods to understand and work with  horses. 

Equine Therapy allows  people and horses to work  together with a therapist in an environment designed to promote emotional growth . I want to share this opportunity with my clients, giving them an alternative from one to one counselling . 

No riding experience is necessary as you are not required to ride the horse .  

We are located in Tarbrax which is a small village off the A70 road, between Edinburgh and Carnwath .
