Mental Health & Wellbeing

Longlands is a unique environment in which we offer one-to-one therapeutic support and mentoring to young people suffering from anxiety, anger issues, depression and lack of self-esteem. Many young people have already benefitted from our tranquil rural environment and the acceptance and companionship of our many animals. 

Julia Evans has a Foundation Degree in Child and Adolescent Mental Health from Worcester University, and a Level 3 Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling and a Foundation in Systemic Family Therapy. She has run the Longlands Riding for the Disabled group for nearly thirty years and has recently qualified as a LEAP Practitioner offering Equine Facilitated Learning and Psychotherapy.

We have recently received funding for a specialist mental health support worker, and are now recruiting.
