My daughter Matilda now 17 years has loved horses from a very young age. When we arrived to ‘At the barn counselling’ we were blown away at the purpose built stables, the well kept horses and the manner in which everything was cared for and run. Sarah began to show Matilda true horsepersonship by teaching and being with her to listen and understand herself in connection to the horses. Matilda has had an amazing opportunity to spend time with and care for the horses. She has grown in confidence and relationship with herself and the horses. We highly recommend Sarah.”

“Words can’t describe how much I appreciate everything that Sarah has done for our son Charlie. My sons psychologist introduced us to Sarah a couple of years ago to help with his therapy.  Charlie has ADHD, ASD, ODD and anxiety and this impacts him greatly with his ability to follow instructions, communicate and manage his impulsivity. Sarah was amazing from the very moment Charlie met her their connection was instant and watching him grow and flourish with Sarah’s help was amazing. Sarah’s therapeutic approach with looking at his window of tolerance and ways for him to support his nervous system through resourcing activities taught and repeated with her was very helpful.

Sarah is so patient and supportive with the she approaches Charlie that he would really want to complete the horse tasks and activities despite his anxiety and sensory issues and was able to start following instructions.

Charlie had never been around horses before and Sarah had him at ease reading their body language and being able to interpret possible feelings from this.  He loves spending time with Sarah.”

“We visited ‘At the barn counselling’ after encountering both emotional and physical burn out in 2020.Through a relationship with a horse called ‘Cash’ and the patient therapeutic work of Sarah in the paddock and outside at the barn we have learnt so much about ourselves and the insight we gained is still deeply transforming us to this day.”

“I recently had the opportunity to undergo some therapy sessions with Sarah.  At first I was a little hesitant that I was going to a therapy session.  But from the very first minutes of working with Sarah all my hesitation dissipated.

I found Sarah to be welcoming and engaged from the start of the first session.  She explained clearly what we would be doing and provided printed information that I could read at my leisure.

She treated our sessions with respect, care, and insight; she creates a non-judgmental environment, and helps make sense of what can seem like chaos.  In this sense, working with Sarah has been astoundingly liberating.  Her approach feels tailor-fit to my needs and sensibilities, and allows for emotional, spiritual, and psychological growth and health.

She balances compassion and empathy, with identifying themes, causes, and patterns of thought.

After leaving each session, I felt as though productive and important work had been done, and always looked forward to our subsequent meeting.

I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah Wilson to anyone looking to go down this path.”

My whole world shattered mid 2022 with the unimaginable loss of my 20 year old son to suicide. There are literally no words to describe the mental ort physical state I was in when I made my first calling to Sarah at her barn.

I was recommended by a friend to seek Sarah’s expertise, particularly in the areas of trauma and grief counselling as well somatic healing.

While I eventually found some additional useful tools to help me, I realised how much I was gaining on a healing level from Sarah’s calming guidance, the rustic beauty of the barn itself along with being surrounded by the horse as well as working outside in the beautiful natural surrounding of the property.

I had never needed to seek any kind of help or therapy previously and was surprised by how much peace and comfort talk therapy and somatic healing under Sarah’s guidance has brought me.

I will never be my old self again. Sarah is teaching me how to survive, helping me find out who I am now and more importantly how to move forward and who I want to be in the future.

My time with Sarah as been truly miraculous. I have never experienced such kind, understanding and insightful treatment before. I used to dread counselling, now I am excited, expectant and ready to do the work! This is all thanks to Sarah and her expertise, compassion and incredible knowledge. She has been a gift to my life and I know my furture health and that of my families will be because of her.

Rebecca

I felt nervous driving to my first appointment. A huge step, a lifetime of thoughts, emotions and experiences all competing to be heard. I swallowed hard to push it all down, where to begin, how to formulate words that could express my need.

As I pulled up at the barn, peace and tranquillity welcomed me as I closed my car door. Sarah approached me with such a genuine beautiful smile, her down to earth nature shone right through. I let out a breathe I didn’t realise I had held in. surrounded by horses, dogs and very busy bush turkey, my body began to relax and take in all that is the barn.

Sarah then welcomed me into a space created with love, light. Compassion, comfort, and I could tell Sarah was genuinely and totally present withme and a feeling of safety and trust came over me. In return I opened up. Its been a healing journey so far with a wonderful guide who is walking right along with me, and I feel safe, heard, accepted, understood, and encouraged in my vulnerability. I absolutely trust Sarah.

Nicole

When I first started seeing Sarah, I wasn’t sure what I needed but I knew I needed help and support. As my trust grew and felt more comfortable I started to trust her process. I found her to be easy to talk to and the tools she taught me I use every day.

I am stronger and equipped with practical tools to deal with unexpected situations as they arise. I wouldn’t be where I am without her support. Her relaxed approach made the idea of seeking help less daunting and her setting brings a sense of peace.

Thank you for investing your time, tools and knowledge into me. I’m a better woman and mother because of your investment in my healing journey!

Lauren

I am so grateful to Sarah. The barn provides a perfect environment of serenity and Sarah is such an understanding, compassionate and insightful counsellor.

Her work with my trauma, depression and anxiety has been nothing short of emotional magic. It’s a completely judgment free zone and her methods of counselling me though my personal struggles has given me hope and the tools to make positive change in my life.

I can’t speak more highly of Sarah, her dedication to her work, and the lasting impact she has had on me and subsequently my family. At the barn is set in a stunning location, a space that instantly calmed my feelings and slowed my heart rate. Sarah complimented this space  perfectly with a cheery and welcoming presence.

Prior to meeting Sarah, I had celebrated my second son coming into the world, which also brought with it quite alarming stress and anxiety, resulting in a raft of anxiety attacks. Throughout my time with Sarah, I built awareness, tools and my capability to navigate through those times, and eventually removing them to where I don’t experience such anxiety anymore. Not to say I won’t again, life always comes with challenges, but I feel incredibly equipped to deal with similar challenges.

I highly recommend Sarah, and can’t thank her enough for the impact she has had on me and my family.

Kim

I am forever grateful to Sarah for giving me the tools to deal with my trauma and grief. It wasn’t an easy process but the results have been well worth it.

Sarah allowed me the space and safety to lean into uncomfortable feelings, and ultimately I was able to work through years of emotions I had been suppressing.

The somatic work that we did together seemed to unlick the challenging parts of my history that I had secreted away and was holding onto much to my detriment.

Feelings still surface, but I now have the tenacity and skills to work through them in a healthier and more productive way. Thanks Sarah! You are the bomb!

Lauren

I have so grateful for my time and treatment with Sarah. I feel stronger, more mentally free and no longer burdened by the trauma of my childhood. I have, and will recommend Sarah and her beautiful therapy to family and friends, and have no hesitation in recommending her to you.
