Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®
“We all know what it feels like to be truly heard and seen. It's welcoming, it's uplifting, and it's genuine. Not only did Christina give me and my girlfriend that kind, heartfelt recognition, she was able to harness it and guide it through the maze of our entangled emotions so that we were ultimately faced with hearing and seeing ourselves. The environment of Airy Hill Stables provided us with a mood of both earthy grounding and magical intrigue, what with heavy stacks of hay ready for use amidst the sand-filled arena, dust glistening in the rays of the evening's sunlight. Christina gently introduced us to the horse we were to work with, Bella, and set a tone of openness necessary for us to tap into our deeper selves. With insightful questions, guided mindfulness, and an uncanny ability to facilitate challenging our inner struggles, Christina granted Bella the freedom to interact with our purest senses. Through these interactions and the active discussions, my girlfriend and I felt clarity and a perspective of presence and intentions forward that were not there before our visit. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone, whether dealing with an acute challenge or seeking overall wellness. Christina and Bella undoubtedly helped us hear and see ourselves in a new light.”

Through thousands of years of partnership, horses have come to understand us like no other being. The eyes of a horse can see into places deep within us - and their hearts can reach places we ourselves do not know how to find. With their touch - their mere presence - they can heal us, making whole that which is fragmented; restoring that which was lost giving us what we need most - healing, insight, and true connection to spirit... and now they have EGCM coaches to help them.
Our coaching sessions, workshops and retreats help you reconnect to the world around you in deeper and more meaningful ways.
"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."
Sir Francis Bacon said, "Knowledge is Power."
I like to say, "Self-Knowledge is Empowerment."
Our coaching programs guide you on an exploratory journey to learn more about yourself and gain clearly around what makes you come alive. The horses support you in tapping into your inner wisdom through becoming more present and more attuned and connected to your body, your true self and the world around you.
