Head Guide – Dina Shale

Founder of an award-winning equine facilitated therapy centre and animal rescue, Dina is a passionate leader and mental health support facilitator. Achieving many qualifications in facilitation, trauma healing and mental health, Dina is a passionate about helping others heal their own trauma and overcome their psychological challenges. However, her true qualification is my own journey of healing from trauma which ignited my passion for assisting people along their own healing journeys.

We all deserve a destination of contentment and self actualisation.

In Dinas work, she helps people from all walks of life and backgrounds who feel they are stuck in their trauma, overwhelmed by their mental health, suffering or simply not reaching their full potential.

Through unique coaching sessions, I guide individuals to make the changes they want in their thinking, their emotional patterns, their behaviours, their lifestyle and their health. A transformation that allows them to go from surviving to thriving in the lives they want.

My work is focused on the results you want and our results speak for themselves.
