Presenter

Bronwen Williams

She has trained Clinical Supervision and also Motivational Interviewing to NHS staff for several decades. She also volunteered for over 30 years in equine welfare. She has an interest in how animal ownership impacts both positively and negatively on human mental health and in how we have difficult conversations and make decisions for the animals we have. She delivers training for animal welfare workers in supporting owners, and others, to change their behaviour to improve animal welfare, including in animal hoarding. Bronwen also writes about teaching, mental health practice and the impact of animals on human mental health. She is owned by a rescue Siamese called Boyo Chadwick.

Sam Chubbock

Sam holds an honours degree in Equine Science and Management, has worked for World Horse Welfare for 20 years and is currently their Head of UK Support. Sam was instrumental in the development of many of World Horse Welfare’s horse owner support materials, especially around weight management and end-of-life decision making. She was in the first World Horse Welfare cohort trained in Motivational Interviewing and has led in sharing this knowledge with other animal welfare and health workers. Although not from a human health or care background, Sam has integrated both Motivational Interviewing and Supervision into her work. Sam’s role involves supporting frontline animal welfare workers as well as speaking directly to horse owners about challenging topics and difficult decisions. Sam keeps a variety of rescued animals, including a cat, five chickens and a turkey called Gloria.
