"Yesterday, I was privileged to experience something that was very much needed in my own recovery process. Growing up, I spent a great deal of my time with horses and have always held them close to my heart. My own daughter, at the tender age of 2 is completely fascinated by her beloved ‘neigh neighs’ and in recent months reminded me that these wonderful creatures had gradually disappeared from my adult life. Synchronisitcally, I was invited by the wonderful Claire Cole for my first foray into Equine Assisted Therapy. I can honestly say that it was one the most transformative experiences that I have had and I was so utterly blown away by the time I spent alongside these wise equine mentors. Just being guided by the horses, reflecting on the light and shadow in my own life has revealed so much to me. The connection I felt to them was truly breathtaking and incredibly life-enhancing. Claire, my heartfelt thanks goes out to you. Your invitation arrived at a truly serendipitous moment and offered me much needed space and personal reflection time. The serenity, clarity and support that I felt as a result of just one morning with these guys has genuinely reshaped my thinking moving forward."
