What We Do

Puddles Not Muddles offer high quality therapy for adults and children. 

What is Counselling

Counselling is a process in which the client and counsellor work together to build a relationship which is honest, transparent and trustworthy, Within this the client can start their journey of discovery and change.

Counselling provides a unique space to help the client achieve positive self-esteem, learn to look after their well being in a healthy way, break patterns of self-destructive behavior and much more.

Animal Assisted Therapy, Equine Facilitated Therapy.

Animals have been human’s therapists for generations, some types of animals have a natural ability to provide love, care and comfort in our times of need.

There is a sense of wonder and wellbeing when we cross paths, and somehow if we are tuned into them they know just what we need even if we don’t.

Working with a counsellor and animal either via observation of their behaviour or by taking part in an activity can enhance our awareness and consciousness to help achieve a healthy mind a sense of purpose and help us feel grounded. 

Eco Therapy

We live in this world and do not often stop to think about its beauty and how we live alongside the land and sea. It keeps us fed and watered, provides us with shelter and warmth. Eco Therapy helps explore our relationship with nature and with our self. Being in nature can help us find ways of coping with depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed.
