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. ©Melisa Pearce

What I have experienced in the 2-year certification program for the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM®) is a higher level of listening, observation of body language of horses and humans, of asking questions that may open your awareness of choices you have that you may have forgotten. It is an understanding of self and others, and cleared a boundary between them to understand what is ‘my’ view and what is ‘others’ view.
Personally, it strengthened my intuition, confidence, a softening and forgiving of myself and others. It opened me up in a safe place, broke down my barriers and defenses, and shined light on experiences that were stuffed down in dark places. It was .of healing, connecting, and being "present," just as horses do every day.
As an EGCM® Certified Practitioner, I offer ways for you to be more aware of limiting thoughts, current surroundings, choices, and the knowing that the answers to your questions lie within yourself. I partner with horses, we are your guides, in a safe and confidential environment, your possibilities are limitless!
