My son felt safe with Liz and respected her expertise. This was very important.
To find out more about the services provided by Kaleidoscope Psychotherapy, please email or phone to book an initial assessment session. This is an opportunity to find out more and decide if therapy is right for you and if so which route you choose. It is also an opportunity for you to meet with Liz Bunting and decide if she is the right Child Psychotherapist for you. This is important as the trusting relationship between you and your psychotherapist is an important factor in the success of the therapeutic process.
Liz is a provider for AVIVA and WPA for clients who have private health insurance.
Kaleidoscope Psychotherapy provides Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) from several beautiful and peaceful rural locations in Cheshire. The EAGALA model is practiced by the team who consist of a mental health professional Liz Bunting and an equine specialist Emily Cooke and several horses who work together to facilitate the EAGALA sessions. These take place in large covered and uncovered outdoor and indoor arenas or in spacious grassy pastures with herds of horses (weather dependent).
Liz has been fantastic in helping her getting back on her feet through the support, and therapeutic techniques she has taught her.
Both EAP and EAL are ‘experiential’ meaning that participants learn about themselves and their interactions with others by participating in activities with the horses and then discussing their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Individual Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Sessions – these will likely be exploring issues in depth and may consist of around six sessions to be complimented with room therapy sessions.
Group Equine Assisted Learning Sessions – these are often short term, around six to eight sessions and may not require room sessions.
Both EAP/L either group or individual children, young people, parents, adults or parent and child can help with:
- Anxiety, Panic attacks & Depression
- Bereavement & Loss
- Self esteem & Confidence
- Raising awareness of unhelpful behaviours and give you tools to generate helpful behaviours
- Assertiveness, Communication & Decision making
- Developing healthy relationships
- Setting and achieving goals & promote team-building
- Finding effective ways of parenting – re-establishing boundaries and maintaining consistency
EAP/L has helped individuals and groups of children, teenagers and parents with their child struggling with relationships issues, negotiation of boundaries, trust and communication, consistency and bereavement. It has assisted their learning about their own behaviour and that of others, how tasks are approached or relationships developed and given them opportunities to make changes where they wish.
