We will focus on gaining a better understanding about your horse and about yourself. Sessions will include ‘talking therapy’ without the horse, to gain understanding about yourself, and issues going on for you. We will also work with your horse, to improve how you function together.
Horses mirror our feelings and our unconscious processes- being with them and developing a relationship with a horse is very special. Taking time to really notice what is going on for you in relation to the horse develops self-awareness and helps you to understand how you function.
Learning about how you come across to a horse can influence your own life skills: in relationships for example, how you cope with stressful situations, perhaps in work or sports environments. The possibilities are endless.
Horses are very aware of non-verbal communication- our body language, how calm and confident we are, or not. This applies to all aspects of horsemanship – whether we are riding or handling them, or simply in their presence. They pick up things about ourselves we are not even aware of!
We can discuss what comes up for you, and time will be spent on common issues that can turn horsemanship from a pleasurable experience into a nightmare!
I can offer a ‘package deal’ of 6 sessions, for example, starting and finishing with you on your own to notice and understand the change in your relationship with your horse.
50 minute sessions cost £40 each in the ‘package deal’ (travel costs may apply)
