Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®
The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® (EGCMethod) 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, assist the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future
The EGCMethod® is different than any other type of equine coaching you may have experienced or seen. With EGCM the horse is an active partner in the coaching and healing process. Using their combined wisdom and intuition, the EGCM coach and their equine partner will guide you through your experience. Working together, they will help you isolate the unfinished business that is causing you pain or blocking your path to success and happiness. Then, through experiential interaction they will assist you in clearing the energy that has been holding you back or keeping you from your best self.
No horse experience is necessary to participate in an EGCM coaching session and you will not ride the horse — although, if you ride, you may find that the EGCM experience deepens the connection with your horses.
EGCM sessions can take many forms and are as unique as each individual who experiences the process. Some people prefer to have their EGCM session in private — just them, the horse and the EGCM coach. Others experience EGCM in a group setting such as a retreat or workshop. Many people find the group setting empowering and enlightening. In either setting, the EGCM coach will make sure you are treated with love, respect and that the coaching is provided in a safe and nurturing environment.
