Why Equine Coaching?
- Do you ever wish that your relationships were better, deeper, more connected?
- Is it hard for you to be really, really honest about what is working for you and what is not, in your relationships?
- Are you worried that you may be misunderstood, and possibly offensive in some situations?
Perhaps you sometimes find yourself saying things like, “We just don’t talk the same language” or “if only he understood me better” or “I can’t seem to get through to her”?
The way that we interact with other people and the success that we have in our relationships, can really affect how we feel about ourselves and how happy and content we are.
Horses are all about connection and relationship. They offer us humans a way to tap into our powerful, energetic, non-verbal communication techniques. Once we start to realize that more than 90% of our message comes from our body language, we can learn to harness our own energy and use it to connect at a different level.
“Looking honestly at how we respond in relationship provides a deeper glimpse of who we are than any mirror hanging on the wall. If we avoid shaming ourselves and blaming others, if we simply become curious about how we react in certain situations, and why, we quite naturally begin to change these patterns.” (Linda Kohanov)
On your exploratory journey towards self-awareness, horses are magnificent companions, offering you a beautiful and insightful mirror into how you are being experienced by others.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does all coaching involve horses?
Not necessarily. Different situations call for different coaching. Equine-assisted coaching is one of several options available for effective coaching. You will bring your own goals and challenges to the coaching journey, and together we will decide whether working with horses may be useful in your process.
What do I need to bring to an equine-assisted session?
Please be sure to wear appropriate footwear for an equine session (i.e. closed shoes or boots, no high heels) and comfortable clothes.
If you suffer from allergies related to animals or pollen, you will be more comfortable if you take the appropriate medication before your arrival.
