Saan, co director at Peakgrove Solutions has a PhD in Human Ecology and Psychology Honours. Saan is currently undertaking Masters in Psychology. Her recent research involves the effects of horses on heart rate variability and mindfulness. She draws on a lifetime of building relationships with her own horses as well as qualitative and quantitative research skills.
Saan is a certified therapist having completed a Diploma of Buddhist Psychotherapy and is a trained teacher of mindfulness meditation. Saan offers groups and individuals new ways to see the issue of concern and helps to extend thinking beyond the thinking that created the problem using a range of holistic and systemic approaches. She works from a philosophy that individual and family, community and global issues are linked and that a holistic view is needed in healing journeys. In addition to her mindfulness practice and therapy and psychology education, Saan has used Constellations extensively in organizations to solve problems through exploring the relevant systems dynamics.
Saan’s leisure time is still spent amongst her herd of Arabs, probably out walking and talking with the stallion, Indi.
