About Me

Welcome to Bellview Connection, a tranquil retreat in the heart of the Grampians, where my passion for horses, animals, and nature converges to offer a distinctive counselling experience. With over 20 years as a Registered Nurse, I transitioned to dedicating more time to my herd and sharing the profound awareness and presence of horses with those seeking personal growth and healing.

As a certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Practitioner from the Equine Psychotherapy Institute and a qualified Mental Health First Aider, I bring supportive facilitation to the intersection of equine assisted psychotherapy and counselling. As a qualified counsellor, Bellview Connection seamlessly integrates my love for learning, sharing knowledge, and the powerful connection between humans and horses, creating a space for clients to embark on a journey of self-discovery, nature immersion, and holistic well-being.
