Equine Therapy Melbourne

Coventry Psychology, situated in the scenic Upper Beaconsfield, Victoria, proudly holds the distinction of being the first Equine Therapy center in Australia. Established by Dr. Traci Coventry, the practice has evolved into a welcoming space for diverse therapeutic experiences, encompassing Equine, Animal Assisted, and room-based Clinical Psychology and therapies. The team comprises accomplished psychologists and a delightful ensemble of co-therapists – horses, ponies, chickens, ducks, cats, and Maremma dogs.

Nestled on the expansive 18-acre property named Epona Brae, the facility features a well-designed space with a floodlit arena, paddock, walk-out areas, offices, barn, and play therapy zones, including a sensory garden. Exclusive therapy sessions are conducted by qualified psychologists and provisional psychologists, combining empirically supported psychological therapy with innovative modalities like Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Animal Assisted Therapy.


The team of therapy horses, ponies, and other animals at Epona Brae are not just therapy aids; they are cherished co-therapists and friends, each bringing a unique touch to clients’ therapeutic journeys and overall well-being.

Coventry Psychology’s mission at Epona Brae is rooted in providing excellence in clinical and equine-assisted psychological therapy. The goal is to offer clients optimal opportunities for mental, emotional, and spiritual growth and healing. This mission is realised through the application of expertise in empirically supported psychological therapies, staying updated on therapeutic trends, and creating a safe, nurturing space for clients to explore and develop essential skills for psychological and emotional well-being.

At its core, Coventry Psychology aims to be a source of hope, fostering a space where authenticity is valued, and individuality is nurtured for the enrichment of each person’s life. The ultimate goal is simple yet impactful – to guide clients towards being their best selves.
