“There is no denying the wild horse in us.”
– Virginia Woolf


Welcome to Wild At Heart Equine Assisted Therapy located at Kin Kin on the picturesque Sunshine Coast of Queensland.

When people need support for mental health, yet traditional talk therapy intimidates them, horse therapy and art therapy are gentle applications to consider. These alternatives to Westernised modalities promote a relational and experiential somatic practice utilising nervous system self-regulation tools to build emotional strength. 

During a session with the horses, their silent yet purposeful and organic methods of communication invite clients to experience self-presence and personal competency, resulting in improved social and psychological health

All sessions are self-paced and tailor-made, incorporating a trauma-informed approach to counselling. In this safe environment, clients have the opportunity to heal.

Meet the Herd

The horses that assist our sessions are Brumbys, which are specifically suited to this kind of work due to their hyper-sensitivity, natural instincts and heightened awareness. I have trained and spent considerable time understanding each horse, and know the intricate details of their personality.
