I have passed my level 3 in Counselling Studies, and am looking forwards to starting the level 4 course in September. I am really enjoying being at college, and working with people. At first, I looked upon it as being a new venture for me, but have come to realise that I have been listening to people for years as a riding instructor, trying to understand why riders and their horses have problems, and working out the best way forwards for them.
Using counselling techniques in my work as a dressage trainer helps me to understand where riders are coming from, but also having ridden all my life, I can empathise with their frustrations, lack of confidence, and elation when it all goes well.
I can offer you privacy and confidentiality at my own yard- it is quiet and no-one will be watching your lessons- except me, of course!
