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.
I began my training with Melisa in 2016 and earned my EGCMethod Practitioner Certification in 2018.
My toolbox to assist parents in creating joyful families is extensive and grows with every session. I am confident in the method not only because of my training, but because part of my graduation requirement was to experience the transformation for myself. I am living proof that the EGCMethod works and offers long term personal growth and freedom.
Why do I do this work? “To inspire others to find and become their dreams so that joy becomes the norm.”
Below is a video that explains a bit more about the EGCMethod in layman’s terms. I can assure you, however, that no amount of text or video can prepare you for what you will experience — and the profound changes that can occur with this type of coaching. For that knowledge, call me. Let’s arrange a session so you can experience it for yourself.
This video explains how the EGCMethod works in easy to understand language and graphics.
