“It was an outstanding experience being with you & the horses; an idyllic setting in perfect weather, your very careful set-up & caring approach made me feel safe & supported.”
“Loved the bit about needs, about embodiment, about acknowledging pain in the body. Loved it”
“Amazing last night was, thankyou, the pony let me know that there is nothing more important than alignment’
“Liz listens deeply to what is being said and what needs to be heard”
“You can trust the journey with Liz as she finds the relationships of the parts of your story and supports the process you are in – whatever it is!”
“Liz gently supports and guides clients through self discovery into finding their truth, she gives her undivided attention and creates a safe and loving space”
“I came to Liz struggling from the impact of sexual abuse and family trauma and how this plays out in
my relationships. I have had counselling in the past and have worked as a mental health
professional, so counselling and therapy is something that I am familiar with. It was clear from the
coaching session that Liz is a highly skilled and qualified worker and what she is offering goes beyond
in method and content to counselling sessions that I have had before.
The presence of the horses was immensely comforting and I rekindled a connection with horses that
I had from my childhood. Two of the horses came up very close to me as I was speaking to Liz and
she was taking a family tree. I was sharing some very difficult family history, which has resulted in
me feeling deeply isolated from people who could have been far more supportive. When I looked
into the horses faces I felt an incredible sense of presence, gentleness and acceptance; so much so,
that I could look into their eyes and feel loved and known. This in itself was really moving and
“I’ve been musing on what to say after my Gestalt Experience with Liz and the Horses. I’ve
had a week for the insights to settle, and it’s been resoundingly positive to be honest.
I wasn’t really sure what to expect, with it being my first time, and Liz was kind and
professional, leading me through the paperwork, and giving me an overview of what we
would be doing. I haven’t ever spent much time around horses, so I was a little wary.
I needn’t have been, the whole experience was amazing, with the first part working with
chairs and memory perception. The visuals of that had such resonance, and awakened such
awareness in me of things I had known deep down I think, but honestly what a powerful and
insightful session, gently and safely held.
We then moved to share space with the horses, and their interactions with me were a delight
and a privilege. I struggle to put the experience into words, but it was deeply personal and I
will truly treasure it.
From a purely wellbeing point of view, I have felt so positive and empowered, I have since
had the confidence to speak long and deeply to a family member, which we both benefited
I can’t recommend the experience enough. I was in safe experienced hands with Liz and the
Horses, and I will be heading back for further sessions.”
“I was interested to explore Gestalt equine life coaching for lots of reasons, but mainly I was curious about what it could bring to my life. Our sessions have been amazing and so empowering. We explored what came up using a number of creative tools and methods, led by Liz and supported by the wonderful ponies that help Liz with her work. The ponies who work with her are wonderful, they each have their own characters and bring different energies to the session. They supported me to move and shift my energies to find my better self, it was truly magical. I would warmly recommend Hearts & Hooves connections coaching to anyone who is looking to make a change, better understand themselves or to explore your inner you. Liz’s approach to her work is warm, kind, open and compassionate, with a purpose, at your own pace. Liz has been available and supportive before, during and after our sessions, helping to reflect on the experience and further my understanding of all that came up.
“Explaining how rewarding our sessions were is difficult, because finding the words to explain how it felt just don’t do it justice.
“The easiest way to explain it is to say I felt repaired by the whole experience. And I feel this repairing is still growing inside me. I feel stronger and feel I have more self belief in myself and the people around me, my support team. I feel I have a deeper understanding of who I am, my hopes, dreams, behaviours which hold me back and what is possible if I am brave and try. I feel an inner strength has been found which has given me the courage and self compassion I need to be happy and follow my dreams. The work we did felt empowering because it was at my pace, naturally flowed, exploring what came up within the safety of the setting Liz and her ponies had created for us.”
