Equine and Animal Assisted Therapist

Michelle is a qualified equine assisted psychotherapist who specialises in working with young people.

Her horses enjoy spending time with her clients for some mindfulness grooming, allowing time and space to reflect and exploring thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental approach (anxiety, depression, stress). Michelle gained her level 5 diploma with LEAP Jan 2019 and has been working with clients on their wellbeing and mental health.

Her Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is on top of her psychology degree, teacher qualifications and Post Graduate Diploma in counselling children and young people. Michelle has 20 years of experience working with children and young people and a vast amount of experience working with SEN / SEMH children and young people. She has been in senior management within education and care settings and a head teacher at a complex needs school. We are delighted that Michelle can share her huge amounts of passion and experience with us here at Verbatim.
