The herd and I are now on a break until 1st August. See you then. 🤗🐴 #equinetherapy #weareonwinterbreak

🤔 Did you know that we also offer evidence based psychological therapies from an outdoor office at a farm location? 
🌳 Working outside in nature alongside horses 🐴 as the co-therapists, assists people feel more relaxed, open up and reduces any anxiety regarding being in a clinic/office based environment.
🐎 Horses are large prey animals and offer us opportunities to sponge and mirror out behaviours, teach us about emotions and how to use social skills and set boundaries.  
🤗We’ve been offering this option since 2018, and invite you to give it a go, if you’d prefer having your session outdoors in nature.
👏Medicare rebates may apply
✅We also assist people on the NDIS either self or plan managed.

I was diagnosed with anxiety PTSD, panic attack, BPD, headaches, ADHD, migraines, and idiopathic hypersomnia. Meds didn't help me at all. All they did was mess me up cos I couldn't live without them. You should try microdosing psylocibin mushroom. It's really helped me and I've seen alot of people it's helped. I advice you check out MEK_SPORES on Insta, he's a really good mycologist he helped me through microdosing experience

**Finding the Right Fit: Therapy & Saddles**

Finding the right therapist is a lot like finding the perfect pair of jeans or the right saddle for your horse. It takes time, patience, and sometimes trying out different options until you find the perfect fit.

🌿 Just as a well-fitted saddle makes a world of difference for our therapy ponies, the right therapist can make all the difference in your healing journey. Remember, it’s okay to take your time and explore different options. 

A big shoutout to Peter Horobin from @peter_horobin_saddlery for customizing and fitting a saddle for one of our therapy ponies yesterday. Your dedication and craftsmanship are truly appreciated! 

✨ Take your time, be patient, and remember that finding the right fit is worth it.

🤔 Did you know that identical twins 👯‍♀️ are determined by genetics 🧬 and blood testing and NOT based on comparing the twins to see if they look alike or identical. 

👍Rachael our Director/clinical psychologist came in contact with La Trobe University when she was just 2 years old (to confirm that she was an identical twin) and never did she imagine that she’d return again to La Trobe to undertake and complete her undergraduate in Psychology (Behavioural science with honours) from 1994-1997. 

👀 Watch this space for further information ℹ️ and resources being prepared for twins by a twin.

😊Years ago, there was a book  📖 I’d recommend to clients as between session homework 📄 called ‘Hire two and call me in the morning’.  It had a list of movies that clients could watch which were relevant to their presenting issues. 

Fast forward ⏩ to 2024, @disneypixarinsideout2  have done it again! 

Love 💕 this! A great movie 🎥 to teach children (and adults) about making room for all emotions.

⏰ Time passes by so quickly! 

💥 Just like that, 24 years as a full member of the @auspsychologicalsociety 26 years since I completed my 4+2 internship (now I’m feeling old). It was a made rush to compete it (and have full registration before the year 2000), fast forward 24 years later, 4+2 is being retired in 2025. 

I’m also a proud 🥹 member of the @aapi.org.au and value their support. 

😊Love that I’ve worked from the ground up ⬆️ and been able to train as a supervisor and help them discover their dreams as I did, in the career journey to become a psychologist.

**📸🐴✨ Understanding Body Language with Horses: A Lifelong Skill! 🕵️‍♀️👀**

Teaching our kids to read body language in horses not only helps them interact safely and empathetically with these majestic creatures but also equips them with skills to understand human non-verbal cues in everyday life. 

Just like detectives, our young learners use body language cues to decide whether to approach a horse and to consider how it might be feeling. This mindful approach fosters empathy and keen observation, crucial life skills!

This is what we love about equine-assisted psychotherapy! 🌟❤️

Few appointments are left for June and early July before we take a winter break from mid-July to the end of July. Book now and give your child the gift of empathy and understanding! 🗓️

🧠✨ Did you know that our Director/Clinical Psychologist, Rachael, also completed a second major in Archaeology at university? 🌟🔍 Over 15 years ago, she embarked on many archaeological tours, including this incredible journey to Egypt 🇪🇬.

Exploring history through archaeology is much like a psychologist’s initial assessment—delving into the past to uncover predisposing factors and understand how they shape who you are today. 🏺🔎 Understanding your history can be the key to personal growth and healing.
