equine assisted personal development (eapd)
Equine Assisted Personal Development is highly beneficial for mental health support and overall wellness. Our horses are certified Reiki and Intuitive Healers who assist in therapeutic sessions with a certified Facilitator.
Our sessions help our clients:
- Take calculated steps with courage and confidence to step out of their comfort zone;
- Improve communication skills and techniques;
- Become a leader and influence successful outcomes;
- Use their passion and energy to inspire and create new solutions and goals;
- Collaborate in a way that builds lasting personal and professional relationships;
- Walk away feeling empowered and confident;
- Build trust, integrity and empathy through teamwork;
- Create boundaries for a positive and healthy lifestyle;
- Improve self-esteem and self-respect;
- Value themselves and others.
All over the world horses are valued for being unique teachers and healers. Horses are prey animals with highly astute senses, they hear, feel and sense the slightest changes in thoughts and intentions. As the horse responds to these stimuli the hidden dynamics, talents and challenges of our clients are quickly revealed providing a unique opportunity for learning, personal growth, healing and advancement. Horses do not judge therefore our clients find it much easier to open up with confidence and comfort. The changes experienced through our programs improve the way our clients see and experience life as a whole.
Equine Assisted Personal Development assists with depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, PTSD, occupational stress, family dynamics, school pressures and general mental health. Our sessions assist all walks of life, ages and professions.

animal communication & reiki
Our combination of Animal Communication and Reiki gives your animal companion an opportunity to express themselves, release stress, stagnant energy and to receive healing. Beneath all that you see, animals are incredible beings; souls who truly want to create a connection and relationship with people on a deep level. Animals are an important part of who we are. They want to enrich our lives and to offer an opportunity to understand WHO they really are and not WHAT they are. Animals are very much sentient beings who are always completely genuine and honest. Animal Communication and Reiki sessions are an opportunity to give animals a voice and to strengthen relationships. These sessions are especially important for animals who work in the therapeutic support fields. Like all individuals, coaches, mental health professionals and healers, animals also need a form of self care to clear and recharge so they can continue to offer us their very best effort in all we ask them to do.
Our sessions translate subtle energies, thoughts and emotion into words. A deep relationship with your animal allows you to reach solutions and resolutions through understanding and love for the highest good of all. My role as a Translator, Intuitive Healer and Reiki Master can improve emotional, mental and physical comfort for your animal; bringing a new level of clarity, certainty and understanding about their own unique needs. Identifying seemingly minor concerns can help avoid future issues or injuries and help to keep them healthy and happy. Animal Communication and Reiki saves time, energy and resources as it is derived directly from the source, the animal.
I value my time with clients and each session is very sacred. It is, therefore, important that my clients understand first and foremost, I am here for you and your animals.
I look forward to sharing this incredible experience together!

ALTERNATIVE AND HOLISTIC ANIMAL PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION FOR PEOPLE
Use these alternative and holistic skills on a personal level, with your existing business or to provide others with private professional holistic services. This certification will maximize the effectiveness of your current or future programs and services by providing you with tools to create and maintain happy, energetically balanced, emotionally and physically healthy animals.
Animal Communication is an ability we all have to feel, hear, see and know the energy of animals. The 'clair senses' are skills that we all have, but have lost touch with in the rush of daily life. We use these skills on a daily basis without even realizing it, they simply require re-connection, guidance, refining and practice.
Animals become accustom to sensing, reading, giving and receiving personal "vibration". Once they sense a willingness that information will be received, they tune in to share their thoughts, feelings and needs. This practice is very efficient for identifying issues, providing clarity and relevance as the information comes straight form the source, the animal. Combining Animal Communication and Animal Reiki healing is a natural fit, it provides a well rounded holistic support system for emotional, mental and physical animal health.
Certification workshops promote deep, soulful relationships with animals, helping to reveal information that contributes to their personality, behavior, physical health and what they require for a balanced life. Animal Communication and Animal Reiki healing can help release traumatic emotions and memories, guiding animals to make important transitions and achieve success moving forward in their life's mission (soul purpose).
“I worry about what my animal will say about me.”
Often people are concerned about what the animal might express. Animals carry extraordinary unconditional love for the people they connect with. They are happy and willing to communicate, expressing themselves with helpful, loving information.
