My name is Cristina Rennie and my background in mental health started at 18 when I joined Victim Services in Langley, BC. I volunteered for 3 years doing supportive counselling and crisis weekends. I have since worked with school districts, non profits, First Nations Communities, addictions treatment centres just to name a few. For the past 9 years I have created my own counselling business, Shamrock Counselling, where I incorporate horses as a part of the work with people. I am Nationally and Internationally certification in Equine Facilitated Counselling with mentor status and regularly supervise Masters level interns from Local Universities such as UBC, City University, and Adler University. As a part of my goals I have established a non profit called Sundance Solace Society to work towards giving free mental health using the horses and nature. I am an avid rider and competitor and take great pleasure doing Jumpers and Eventing with some of the therapy horses.
