About Heard Therapies

A very warm welcome to my website! Here you will find information about me, the services I offer and how they can help you. I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Supervisor and Equine Facilitated Interaction Practitioner. I am based in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands, close to Stoke-on Trent, Leek, Congleton and less than an hour from Manchester. At Heard Therapies I believe everyone has the right to be heard. Whether through the Counselling process, Equine Facilitated Interactions, or a combination of the two, the power of truly being heard and understood can be life changing.
