With bespoke, private programs and a highly qualified and multidisciplinary team, The Banyans offer the highest level of personal therapeutic care.
EAGALA certified Equine Therapy is an important inclusion of the bespoke programs at The Banyans, and is delivered by our lead psychiatrist Dr Anja Kriegeskotten. Dr Anja has a special therapeutic interest in trauma therapy, and has over twenty years of experience in assisting people with PTSD.
