Age Range:  18+

I offer personal equine assisted sessions for people seeking self-development and coaching. My horses help people to pay attention to their body intelligence rather than the way we are all used to from the logic part of the brain. Paying attention to what is happening in your body is beneficial when making decisions or dealing with upsetting situations. Combining that with my KI Aikido Martial Arts training I am able to help people fulfilling their potential by overcoming the fear which is holding them back. My horses, centre and myself provide a safe and beautiful place to experience the Equine Assisted Therapy.
