Contemporary clinical research shows that close proximity to horses
changes human brain wave patterns suggesting that humans can be transformed in
a very positive way when in the presence of horses. It has also been revealed
in studies conducted by HeartMath that horses have extremely strong heart
rhythms which have the capacity to affect our own heart rhythms, similar to a
magnetic force, which help relax and calm us when in their presence. (Link to
Equine Assisted Therapy in its many forms is gaining huge popularity and
acclaim as a transformational and healing modality around the world, and more
recently in Australia. People have known for many centuries that horses have a
special capacity to heal, relax and promote happiness within us, but only now
are we starting to really tap into, and understand that power.
The fact that horses are prey animals means they are highly sensitive to
behaviour and body language and have also evolved to become highly attuned to
human emotions and responses through centuries of co-habitation with us.
Studies are now discovering that horses can actually recognise different human
facial expressions depicting things like anger, happiness and sadness which
shows a level of evolutionary intelligence and understanding far greater than
we have previously recognised. What this
means is that we have a very intelligent and intuitive being who picks up on
our inner and outer world perfectly and responds by mirroring ourselves back to
us in a non-judgemental, non-biased and non-invasive way.

Assisted Therapy I have developed based on my background in Life Coaching and
Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It combines the knowledge, skills and techniques
I have learnt from these modalities with the wisdom and spirit of horses.

need to go. It is a reflective way to encourage growth and transformation for
the client and sometimes the horse as well! Horses
have the ability to see into and connect to our innermost heart and reflect
back to us what our beliefs, emotions and behaviours are in a way that opens a
space for positive recognition and transformation.
The whole process is a very
intuitive and personalised experience for all involved and is solely about the
client and the results they want to achieve to create a life that fulfils them
which means that every session is different.
