EQUINE ASSISTED COACHING
Track Clinic runs private coaching sessions and group workshops for leaders and professionals exploring self awareness, emotional intelligence and authentic expression relative to individual self development needs.
This form of experiential coaching is an opportunity to
uncover subconscious patterns of behaviour and belief systems that impact performance
provide a mirror into how we are perceived by others and influence relationship dynamics
uncover new insight into fulfilling ambitions and maximising potential
NO RIDING TAKES PLACE AND NO EXPERIENCE NOR INTEREST IN HORSES IS REQUIRED
Track Clinic helps uncover ways of being that are in harmony with our emotional energy and deep intention. The horses, responding in the moment with absolute integrity, mirror our state of mind and together with the facilitators uncover new behaviours and thought patterns to improve wellbeing, performance and communication with others.
Equine Assisted Coaching is experiential rather than theoretical in nature and hence brings forth two major benefits when compared to conventional coaching models:
1. A deeper, actionable level of insight due to the un-masking of subconscious states and patterns of behaviour that go beyond the analytical brain. The horses provide a clear mirror of what is happening and how new outcomes can be achieved.
2. Quicker results, that endure
Experiential Learning Theory shows that new neural pathways in the brain are created when a new behaviour is actioned. This allows for immediate behavioural change which becomes embedded both on a conscious and subconscious level.
Do you know your true impact on others?
Do you know your barriers to success?
Track Clinic Programs take participants on an experiential journey where reflective observation, abstract conceptualisation and active experimentation are applied according to the personal obstacles that arise for each individual - reflecting Kolb’s theory of ‘learning through reflection on doing’.
Coaching sessions take place monthly over a six month period culminating in a review session in order to track and assess the impact of new mindsets and behaviours on a personal and professional level. Each participant receives a detailed analysis of their participation detailing insight, evidence and tangible outcomes.
Outcomes may include improved self and social awareness, clarification of personal boundaries, deepening trust of others, insight into default leadership style, and personal blocks in progress.
“I had no idea how much my state of mind was influencing my work and my personal relationships. I was able to work through each of my blocks receiving instantaneous feedback from the horses as I did so.”
Our Impact on Others
“The way the horses react to different people is a real insight into how we are received by each other and the impact - both positive and negative - that we have without even realising it.”
Shifts in Behaviour
"When I put my learning into practice back at work I noticed people change around me without having to negotiate or debate with anyone. For me it was a matter of setting my own boundaries and gaining more respect as a result."
Track Clinic is a multi-disciplinary team of Equine Specialists, Psychotherapists and Coaches and a herd of therapy horses. We operate in two distinct areas of work, leveraging the effectiveness of the equine assisted model to provide psychotherapy services for mental health and coaching services for personal development.
We adhere to a globally recognised model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning (EAGALA.org) which is proven to bring about emotional and behavioural change. In the therapeutic context the model allows deep subconscious needs to surface so that the root cause of the mental health condition can be fully seen. From this place of clarity and self awareness new solutions and relief from symptoms arise with ease. Similarly, in the coaching context, this form of experiential learning un-masks our true nature and clears blockages in progress and performance.
