Equine Gestalt Coaching
Through my lifetime of loving horses and creating my life's work in partnership with them, my horses continued to whisper to me "There is something more we can do...." As a professional instructor and trainer, I witnessed how horses empowered, brought peace, joy and connection and clarified one's Intention - yet there was still more Horses yearned to give and share. My desire to heed the call of Horse, led me to the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM). What appealed to me was that EGCM was truly effective in bringing humans growth and healing, achieved through practical coaching tools and the innate healing gifts my horses possess. Horses have an ability to assist humans in opening the heart, enabling new understanding and productive change and healing wounds never healed with other approaches.
Horses help you achieve the life vision in your heart
In EGCM the horse is an active partner in the coaching and healing process. Together, Horse and I, guide You through your experience to bring you to the answers and healing within You, that are outside of your current ability to access and change. We help you to isolate the unfinished business that is causing you pain or blocking your path to success and happiness. Through experiential gestalt methodologies we assist you in clearing the energy and patterns that have been holding you back from you best self and bring back "wholeness" of self.
Is EGCM coaching for Me?
No matter what life circumstance, change or trauma has deeply affected you, EGCM can help you move forward to achieve your goals and intentions for a fuller and happier life. Horses eyes see deep within us, their hearts reach places within ours we have not found ourselves. Their mere touch and presence can heal us, making whole that which was fragmented, restoring that which was lost.
Through the two years of training to become a certified EGCM coach, I discovered that which my horses were whispering. A way to assist them in what they have desired to do all along - bring healing, insight and a deep connection to horse, spirit and self.
