Amherst, VA – Horses are naturally prey animals. As a result, their vibrational fields are exponentially bigger than our own. They’re not thinking about yesterday or tomorrow. They are always alert, living in the moment.
According to Carolyn Fitzpatrick, we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of how to channel that energy to help people. Fitzpatrick is the founder of The Horse Connection, an organization that specializes in using Equine Gestalt Coaching to help people move forward in their personal journey, whether they’ve experienced the loss of a loved one or simply need the motivation to navigate through transition.
“Horses understand us in ways we haven’t been willing to understand about ourselves,” says Fitzpatrick. “At the Horse Connection we believe horses can connect with people to surface emotional issues they have not yet adequately addressed."
A family mediator for over 26 years, she says Equine Gestalt Coaching was a natural transition. What makes Equine Gestalt Coaching different, however, is that everything Fitzpatrick arranges between the client and the horse is truly an experiment. If successful, this experiment should move the client in the direction they need to go or unveil what they need to find.
“My clients are highly functional and smart enough to know that the way they’re feeling isn’t how they want to continue feeling,” says Fitzpatrick. “I am there to encourage and support, not condemn, judge or have a preconceived notion they should go in a certain direction because of a past choice. I would much rather help them create a path to where they want to be."
