Oak Therapies Equine and Outdoor Theraputic Centre


Oak Therapies provides a safe and confidential space for you to speak with a trained professional. Talking to someone who will help you articulate your thoughts and feelings through counselling is:

  • A safe place to discuss your problems and celebrate your strengths.
  • The relationship is confidential, except for your safety and the safety of others.
  • It increases your self-awareness, allowing you to use your strengths to tackle whatever issue you are keen to explore. 

Since the only person you can change is yourself, we encourage you to take small steps outside your comfort zone to begin feeling more satisfied with life. It is a two-way process in which you decide where and what to focus your efforts on and which goals we can help you achieve.

The process helps you to understand what makes change possible and what stops change from happening, and it helps you to understand what patterns from the past play out in your relationships today.


Other ways to interact, besides talking, can be more fun and can also be more effective. They include:

  • Art
  • Music
  • Play
  • Movement and activities
  • Walking and outdoor experiences
  • Sensory play

All the above communication strategies are intended to foster a mutually beneficial, safe, and trusting relationship, which, according to research, is the best predictor of positive future outcomes.
