Take the First Nurturing Stride towards self-healing

Each and every one of us has suffered some sort of trauma in the course of their lives. Because we move on with our lives, we often feel that what we experienced in the past is taken care of. However, traumatic experiences, no matter their intensity, stay imprinted in our cells. Most likely, they stay outside of our awareness. We get triggered and wonder why. And we unconsciously pass on to our children our own unresolved issues.

The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989 of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future. – Melisa Pearce
