My journey with horses began at the age of 29 when I bought my first horse Delilah. Much later, in 2004, when my mother was dying of cancer, I became aware of the impact of my own turbulent emotions on my third horse Winston. Then, a student in body psychotherapy, I began to understand how intricately horses engage with us and how willing they are to help, if we are open to what they have to offer. From there I evolved my embodied, horse-led approach to psychotherapy and learning and began practising with clients in 2009.
As well as working therapeutically with individuals I work with organisations on change, leadership, relationships, communication and teams and am a published author. You can read more about this work and my story on www.equestlimited.co.uk.
“These huge beasts shine a gentle light into the dark places of the heart and in doing so warm and soften it. Then when our spirit stirs the horse too will move, his ears will prick forward playfully. He will run with us and play, rewarding us for simply being ourselves with such a display of grace, power and majesty that we will never forget what it felt like, for that moment, to be ourself with him.”
