A Discovery session gives you the opportunity to explore either an equine assisted session or trauma sensitive session without the horses. This is normally done in person however with lockdown restrictions I am offering an hours zoom session to connect and see how I may be able to help you. A Discovery session is usually £40 but I am discounting it to £30 for Be Local cardholders. I am also offering a free session by zoom for NHS workers. This opportunity is to connect with you, explain a little about psycho-education and offer some tools for emotional regulation at this difficult time. It is an opportunity to invest some time in your emotional wellbeing. Sessions thereafter are bespoke and tailored to individual requirements.
My name is Emma Rourke and I partner with my horses to offer Equine assisted coaching for personal development, and clinical trauma therapy. Horses reflect how we show up in the world, they are masters in the art of non-verbal communication, using their senses to express themselves and mirror our internal state. This really helps people to see where they may be holding stress as they learn to be present and mindful and listen to what their body is telling them. This is particularly helpful with trauma, PTSD and developmental trauma, where talk therapy may not have helped in the past and they can start to learn to regulate their emotions in a healthier way. I have a variety of techniques that I can use with or without the horses, cognitive processing therapy, emotional freedom technique, mindfulness techniques and life coaching. I am also a British Horse Society professionally accredited coach level 4. No previous horse experience is necessary, and all sessions with the horses are conducted safely with risk assessments. I am a member of the National Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. and an IFEEL Safe Professional. I work with many different people to help them with life challenges, from depression and anxiety, to personal development and well-being. I am passionate about helping people to overcome challenges and become the best versions they can be of themselves. Horses have been instrumental in my own journey, they have grounded me, and helped me to develop emotional resilience. Often people find it easier to connect with horses or dogs as they are non-judgemental, and have a calming effect. I also work with people who are frightened of horses too. If you are curious to see how I may be able to help you, I offer an introductory discounted Discovery session for Be Local cardholders for £30. Usual price £40. Sessions thereafter are bespoke, depending on what is required.
