Horses bewitched me from an early age, although I was approaching 30 years old before I bought my first horse Delilah. Thus began a journey of discovery: both of myself and of the profound wisdom and spirit of the horse. In my work as an author, horse-led coach and therapist I endeavour to share the healing which they offer to us so generously.
I have dedicated myself to offering horse-led development experiences to people young and old, from all walks of life, since 2009. Prior to that my background was in leadership development, organisation change, body psychotherapy and horse behaviour and my approach to horse-led learning, coaching and therapy weaves together strands from all these spheres: practical, experiential, embodied, spiritual, an emphasis on presence and most of all an emphasis on the central role of the horse in the process between human and horse which evolves. Often what I do is called equine assisted learning, I prefer to call it ‘horse-led’ because I believe it is I who assist the horses, not the other way around.
You could find it helpful to work with me and the herd if you are stuck, seeking change, needing to integrate emotional experience, exploring career change, or experiencing bereavement, trauma, illness, stress or anxiety. Equally you might be exactly where you want to be in your life, and simply want to deepen your felt sense of yourself and fully experience your wellness in the heart of the herd, in a beautiful rural setting. If you are aspiring to integrate horses into your own coaching or therapy practise you can also explore this with me, on a tailored retreat or one which is dedicated to this purpose.
As well as helping you to access your truth and purpose, working with horses is calming, joyful and you will remember it for a long time to come.
You can read about my work as well as many inspiring, moving and courageous stories of horse-led transformation in my books The Spell of the Horse and The Spirit of the Horse.
As well as working therapeutically with individuals I work with organisations on change and leadership. You can read more about this work at www.equestlimited.co.uk.
I am based in a beautiful corner of North Western France, where I offer residential and non-residential retreats and transformational coaching. Find out more about my move and new facility on Our Home page
‘The ability of the horse to sense emotion, energy and spirit is beyond what most of the human world realises. This is why their impact on us can be so instant, so consistently positive, so transformational’
