People need support to survive and thrive in this thing we call life. Life Coaches assist and encourage, without passing judgment or holding back. The purpose of a Life Coach is to help individuals and groups perform at their highest level professionally, personally, and financially. Many people also seek out Life Coaches for help with relationships, careers, communication, motivation, health, and spirituality. Life coaches work with their clients to help them achieve goals, overcome obstacles and make changes or shifts in their lives. The coach works with the client, as a partner, knowing that the client has the answers to create the changes they seek.
A life coach is someone who can look at you and see the potential for you to achieve all that you desire. Through specific strategies and skills, the coach helps you define yourself and create the life you’ve always envisioned. Coaches help you focus, provide direction, challenge you, support you, motivate you and celebrate with you. Life coaches help you create a plan, detail action steps and hold you accountable for following through. They use skills that include observing, listening deeply, asking empowering questions, challenging and motivating. Coaches do not counsel or analyze the past. Life coaching is based on the principle that the client has the intrinsic ability to determine and achieve their goals.
So, Why Equine Assisted Life Coaching?
Horses operate in a similar way that a mirror does, reflecting back everything we need to see about ourselves. Sometimes the mirror shines on our greatness, joy, happiness, pride, and success, and other times it exposes the darkness/negativity and our shadow. Just being around a horse is healing for most individuals. Many people have had major break-throughs when they are around them. People come to an equine coaching experience without expectations and they leave blown away at what they saw, felt, released and embraced.
