Our Team - Jane Faulkner

Jane Faulkner

Director, Trainer and Assessor – QLD, Therapist

I would like to acknowledge the Kombumerri and Minjungbal traditional owners of this land upon which I live, love, play and work. I live in the Tallebudgera Valley on the Gold Coast and feel grateful for this every day. I am the founder and director of Equine Assisted Therapy Australia.

For the past 27 years I have had the privilege of being able to work on my own healing and learn from great teachers and healers from all over the world. These teachers and healers have provided support and guidance and have instilled in me a passion for working with people. 

I have worked as a Nurse in different communities both here and overseas, a yoga teacher and for the past 14 years have been working as a therapist supporting people in both room-based settings and in equine assisted therapy sessions. As a therapist I draw upon Gestalt psychotherapy, Somatic experiencing, Equine assisted psychotherapy and Art therapy.

I have completed the following studies:

Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing Certificate, Certificate in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy,  Certificate in Initiatic Art Therapy, Bachelor of Nursing, Certified Riding Instructor and Trail Guide and a Certified Iyengar Teacher.

I am a Clinical member of PACFA, a level 3 member of the ACA, a member of GANZ, a member of Animal Therapies Limited and a member of the Australian Iyengar Yoga Association.
