HOW DOES IT WORK?

"Horses have an instinctive ability to mirror your emotional energy, intention and body language, responding in the moment to subtle changes in the body-mind states. With the guidance of experienced facilitators the clients can bypasses the analytical mind and challenge the blocks that are stifling recovery and progress. It is from this deep insight that new behaviours and long term strategies emerge. Unlike conventional interventions this experiential form of therapy and coaching requires the full (and often non-verbal) engagement of body and mind  - a space where old stories and expectations are no longer served and where our innermost workings are revealed."

"I felt fully 'seen' by the horses. As if they knew what I needed to accept and what I needed to simply let go of."
