Equine Therapy is a growing therapeutic intervention and Equine Assisted Growth and 


Learning Association (EGALA) has programs now established in over 50 countries.


Sessions can be conducted with both individuals and groups. Equine Therapy has been proven 


to provide therapeutic support for many and can be targeted for use in specific issues from


 mental health diagnoses and experiences through to social learning development.


In 2015 Amy completed certification with internationally recognised Equine Assisted Growth 


and Learning Association (EGALA) and began practising equine therapy as an equine specialist 


prior to completing her tertiary education in 2016 with a degree in Social Work. She began full 


time employment as a social worker in various fields whilst continuing to practise Equine 


Therapy and instructing in horse riding on my weekends.


Her professional experiences include working with individuals and groups in


adult and adolescent acute mental health, disability, and forensics. Within these roles she 


engaged in short term crisis or distress intervention as well as longer term programs aimed at 


psychological or behavioural changes.


Amy’s therapeutic engagement is informed by her professional values of interventions 


needing to be client centered. She infuses therapeutic frameworks such as attachment 


therapy, CBT, DBT, ACT and Schema therapy into these interventions.
