Traditional psychotherapeutic counseling
In a series of one-hour sessions, couples or individuals engage with Lesley in an open process of communication, revelation and resolution.
Through psychotherapeutic techniques including transactional analysis and gestalt therapy, clients are guided towards insights and awareness of the positive choices and options available to them to foster a return to emotional, mental and spiritual health. Moving towards a resolution of often highly-charged emotional issues provides individuals with greater feelings of self-awareness, self-empowerment and self-esteem.
Energy-based psychology is primarily a psychotherapy technique employing intuitive processing, manual muscle testing, accupoints and affirmations. It is a powerful psychotherapeutic tool that enables individuals to:
– reduce and eliminate psychological distress, anxiety, fears and phobias
– effectively transform core beliefs and self-limiting patterns
– promote peak performance and personal development

Equine-assisted psychotherapy is an emerging field in which, as its name implies, horses are used as part of the therapy to facilitate emotional growth and learning. It is experiential in nature. The focus is not on riding or horsemanship but on interaction with the horses. In the process, the individual learns about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses and then processing and discussing personal feelings, behaviors and patterns.
Lesley utilizes this moving and effective psychotherapeutic approach to address a variety of emotional and developmental needs including behavior issues, eating disorders, attention deficit disorder, substance abuse as well as depression and anxiety.
