The types of therapy we provide can help to address: trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress, addictions, eating disorders, and other mental health and behavioral concerns, as well as educational objectives like working with business groups and leaders, schools, and other growth and learning needs.

At Vanora, we provide Equine-Assisted Therapy, Equine-Assisted Learning and office-based counselling

Equine-Assisted Therapy- self exploration and personal development, may be consecutive sessions. The number of sessions depends on case by case, depending on the individuals needs and goals.

Equine-Assisted Learning- can be designed for one-off session for individuals or groups who wish to focus on a specific agenda/ goal such as team-building- ideal for corporate work, sports groups etc.

Office-based Counselling- our office is based in Dunedin. Sybill and Esther are qualified therapists and can both provide this form of therapy.

Vanora is located in Waikouaiti, 30 minutes north of Dunedin, New Zealand. We are situated in the countryside, amongst farmland and surrounded by pockets of native bush which attracts the native birds like the Tui and Bell birds and the very friendly Fantails. 
For many when they come to the land, they acknowledge the peacefulness, and its nature.
