Recovery planning & aftercare

I wanted to create an environment where people can come to heal by providing a retreat that offers an escape from the stress of everyday living.

Here our clients can look at their lives, their thinking and behaviour, in order to assess what is working for them and what is not.

Our aim is to free our clients from the restraints of their past trauma to become the best that they can be. Our greatest joy is to see people leave Camino and flourish with the new tools they have gained.

Effective Equine Therapy

Camino Recovery specialises in equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP). Our programme director, Don Lavender is an early pioneer in the development of this therapy and responsible for introducing his methodology to Europe.

In establishing an emotional interaction between client and horse a highly experienced therapist can help the client work to uncover emotional and psychological issues, often more effectively than talk therapy.
