I am thrilled to have such lovely reviews this month from both Equestrian Trade News and Therapy Today. It is so exciting that this book appeals to both the horse world and the mental health profession! I learned so much more writing it: a real learning curve which has given me a greater understanding of my horses, and myself as a human being, horse owner and rider.
I am a therapeutic counsellor with an equestrian background. I combine these skills to help you to get the best out of your relationship with your horse.
Building a better relationship with your horse is about how you work as a team. . Sessions will include ‘talking therapy’ without the horse, to gain self-awareness and to explore issues going on for you. We will also work with your horse, to improve how you function together.
Understanding your Horse
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!
What happens in sessions?
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! Talking about strategies and a game-plan off the horse in a calm environment can help you to work through problems before putting them into practice.
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. Personal sessions without the horse can be on-line, using Zoom.
50 minute sessions cost £40 without the horse, and £45 if I come to you to work with your horse too (for up to an hour). (travel costs may apply)
