Why Equus Coaching?
Equus coaching is coaching for humans, using horses. It is a unique way for you to explore your behaviours and patterns and gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and how you interact within in dating and relationships and/or any environment around you.
Through a series of interactions and activities with horses, you will see the behaviours and patterns that have a tendency to show up when you are trying to build and maintain an intimate relationship. The horse will give you an instant and honest reaction to these behaviours, highlighting when these are coming up (even if you are not consciously aware of them). Their genuine reaction gives you a insight into your behaviour from your date or partner's perspective.
Equus is fun, different and a chance to really understand how others are seeing you!
No riding is involved, and no prior experience with horses is needed.
"Katherine was a great coach and the work with the horses was an illuminating experience. I’d recommend this type of work for anyone looking to get a deeper understanding of how they are perceived and what they can do to be more present with others"
Liam / Oil & Gas Executive / Dubai
Horses are completely non-judgmental. They do not have pre-conceived judgment of who you are based on your looks, upbringing, job status, relationship status or any other common judgments that people tend to hold.
All horses are concerned about in an Equus coaching session is the present moment - how you are behaving towards them and what is going on in their environment around them. To interact with the horse, you need to be present in that moment, and understand how you are interacting with the horse. As you get a deeper understanding of this and start to explore different behaviours, the horse’s response to you will change instantly, providing you with genuine and honest feedback.
The people and environment in our day to day lives rarely give us “honest” feedback, or any feedback at all. Often, we have no way of knowing how our behaviour is perceived by the people we are dating, or what their true reaction to this behaviour is. People often wear masks, or contain reactions, to protect themselves, you or the relationship between you. Horses are different - they have no pressure from society or themselves to react in a certain way - they will simply react to the situation in front of them instinctively.
What will I get out of Equus Coaching?
What will I get out of Equus coaching?
Equus coaching is likely to give you some powerful insights into your behaviour that you are not currently aware of. When we are caught up in our day to day lives, it is very hard to take an objective look at our behaviours and reactions to others and our environment. When you are busy “coping” in any given situation, you do not have the space to become aware of how and why you are behaving in a certain way.
You can expect to get:
an understanding of your current behaviour and patterns when reacting to the environment around you
an understanding of when certain emotions arise for you and your current coping mechanisms for dealing with these
an understanding of how you currently communicate, and how this comes across to others
a different perspective on your relationships with your partner, family, friends, and colleagues
an understanding of how you treat your self
a chance to be in nature and disconnect from the stress of city/working life

""Kat's Equus session was a beautifully unique experience. From the start you are fully immersed in the task at hand. This level of presence in the moment allows you to access a 3rd person view of your decision making process. With this view, Kat guides a line of questionning to facilitate self-reflection in a gentle manner. I recommend the experience to anyone who'd like to explore their behaviour in a cheerful setting or who has an affinity for animals"

How does it work?
I will help you translate your interaction with the horses into scenarios in your “real life”. We can identify where you are showing the behaviours that came up in your interaction with the horse when dating and in relationships. We can identify what happens when you changed these behaviours with the horse, and explore how you can make similar changes in your “real life”.
Sessions are completely tailored to the you and we will use the most suitable Equus methods for you. We will start with an exploration of what is currently going on in your life, and what you would like to explore in the session. There will be a variety of activities with the horses, from observing their natural behaviour from a distance to working with horses within a small arena, both on or off the halter.
I will carefully explain each activity, and you can choose whether you would like to do each activity or not. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and debrief on your experiences.
Sessions are available in Dubai, UAE and Surrey/London, England. Other locations available on request.
