Horses are highly intuitive and strong powerful animals that have a desire to seek connection through trust, boundaries, attachment and respect. More often than not, the horse reflects back to you, your own emotional state, taking you on a journey of self-healing and acknowledgment.
Our equine friends are extremely perceptive and quickly adapt to what’s been put in front of them. This provides important feedback to the handler, including self-awareness, emotional and mental state, and communication blocks or other forms of consciousness.
During these sessions, you will engage in a supportive therapeutic process based on trust and connection with the horses, developing a sense of acceptance, growth and gratitude towards yourself
Sessions run for approximately 60 minutes and are based on property in Nyora, South Gippsland.
$120 per session
