Meet Deb Lewis

Deb Lewis

Deb has a stack of qualifications and years of experience, but these are only part of the reason why Deb’s clients speak so highly of her. The simple truth is – Deb LOVES horses, she LOVES people, and nothing makes her happier than helping people benefit and heal with the presence and assistance of her beautiful equine friends and the other animals here.

Real Success Stories

Rivendell's Equine Assisted Therapy has helped me more than other therapies I have tried. I find it relaxing and I look forward to going there. Deb is very supportive and understanding, she also provides me with strategies for managing my life in a more positive way. As a participant in Rivendell's Equine Assisted Therapy, I know that Debra Lewis is hard-working, and friendly. I highly recommend Rivendell's Equine Assisted Therapy.
Deb has helped me a lot with Mental, Social and Physical health. With Deb and the horses, I have been able to keep my Bipolar under control a little bit better. Deb has helped me get some of my life back, to stop second guessing myself and being less critical about myself. I'm a hard person to reach and had some bad times over the last 7 yrs. I have almost isolated myself from other people. Deb is a very friendly person and very knowledgeable about mental health and horses. We talk about what horses can teach us; what horses show with their body language. Deb shows how they pick up on my own body language. I would recommend Deb to any person that needs help with their mental health. I feel with the help of this counselling service, I'm making progress in my life.
