Services can take many forms, and are as unique as each person who experiences the Equine Gestalt Coaching Process. You may prefer to do your personal work in private – just you, the horse and your coach (with a handler if available).
Or, you may prefer to join a weekly group, daily workshop or weekend retreat. Some people find a group setting incredibly empowering, enlightening and supportive.
Either way, your coach will make sure you are treated with love & respect in a safe and nurturing environment.
Please bring a pen, journal and bottle of water. Wear closed toed shoes and dress in layers as we do sometimes get dirty and the weather can change fast.
One on One Session: (1-2 hrs each)
“One on one” sessions are held with a coach and a horse (weather permitting), and a handler if one is available. Sessions can be for you individually or a couple.
At a session, you will join your coach and the horse(s) in safely, confidentially exploring any concerns you might have. Your coach and the horse(s) are there to listen and assist you in finding the answers you need and help you become more aware of the behaviors, thoughts, feelings and beliefs that may be getting in your way or causing you problems in your life, so you can clear those and move forward.
If you are working with a therapist, they are welcome to come and observe as well.
Weekly De-stress Meetings: (1-3 hrs)
ELTH offers two reoccurring, weekly women’s group meetings, on site, and one online Zoom group for anyone. These group meetings can help you move away from stress and pain and towards peace and happiness in your life.
Group members often create meaningful connections with each other and themselves and often focus on topics such as reducing stress, managing anxiety, self discovery, understanding themselves and others, improving communication and creating goals, visions and purpose in their lives etc. This is the most popular service ELTH offers.
Phone Coaching: (1/2 or 1 hr each)
Phone Coaching usually follows after a “one on one” session, but is also used if you are unable to come to the facility at ELTH for a session. You will be coached over the phone once a week for approximately half an hour. Then follow-up with the horse(s) when your if you are able.
Much like with a “one on one”, you can work through difficult issues and learn how to create positive growth and change in your life over the phone. Your coach is there to listen and assist you in finding the answers you need and help you become more aware of the behaviors, thoughts, feelings and beliefs that may be getting in your way or causing you problems in your life, so you can clear those and move forward.
Workshops & Retreats: (1-3 days each)

These 1-3 day workshops and retreats are held on site, usually on a weekend. Groups are limited to 8-10 people. Examples of benefits to take away are: Lower Stress, Reduce Anxiety, Improve Communication, Find Answers, Deal with Difficult Issues, Find Connection and Common Ground, Conflict Resolution, Teamwork, Insight into others etc. This is the most comprehensive and life changing service ELTH offers.
