Ellie is our resident self-care guru.
As a New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC) Registered Counsellor, Ellie has a passion for all things health and wellness.
Horses have always played a role in Ellie’s heart having learned how to ride at a very young age, going onto Pony Club to compete in Games, Eventing and Show Jumping and continuing to ride into adulthood.
Whilst completing her Counselling training at Auckland Unitec, she discovered Equine Therapy and from then has been set on integrating horses and animals into her therapeutic work.
In 2015 Ellie started The Balanced Life Counselling. A Service aimed at challenging traditional modes of therapy by incorporating the outdoors, horses and her Border Collie, Bonnie in her therapeutic work.
Her goal with Equine Reflections is to help people learn skills, develop a strong sense of who they are, and the confidence to move forward in life in the way they wish. No matter what background and strengths people have, there is always room for reflection, personal and professional development.
