Equine Facilitated Learning: 1:1 Personal Development Sessions

Set in a beautiful, rural environment in Somerset near Bath and Bristol, my one-to-one sessions use a combination of coaching, theoretical discussion, creative activities and, of course, reflective and active experiences with the horses.

We can learn so much from horses, and time spent mindfully in their presence can help to spark ‘aha’ moments in which our theoretical knowledge transmutes into real understanding. Private 1-1 EFL sessions are a good way to begin to integrate those lessons into our everyday life as they offer the opportunity to explore specific topics, themes or areas for self-development.

Some people will choose the privacy and individual attention of a 1-1 session as their first experience of Equine Facilitated Learning, whereas others choose to have individual sessions after a workshop to support their ongoing process and journey. Private sessions can be experienced as 2hr sessions, a 6 week programme of 2hr sessions, ½ day or whole day experiences.

Some of the benefits of EFL:

client and horse connection

  • Tune into yourself and honour your true feelings
  • Overcome anxiety and access inner peace and calm
  • Set clear, consistent, and healthy boundaries
  • Communicate clearly and effectively
  • Build confidence and self esteem
  • Develop focus and clarity
  • Create honest and authentic relationships to yourself, others, and your community
  • Reconnect to your sense of purpose and direction


2 hour sessions – One off 1:1 session £185, ongoing sessions £140
6-week programme of 2 hr sessions – £700
½ day (10am – 1pm or 2- 5pm) – £250
Whole day (10am – 4pm including lunch) – £420
Relax & regenerate (whole day including treatment with Vanessa Withey) – £420
Where – Brickyard Farm, Clutton BS39 5QJ


If you want to make significant progress it can often take time and support to integrate new skills and establish new ways of being. I offer block bookings of 2hr sessions or ½, 1 or 2 day experiences with coaching calls in between.

In EFL sessions you spend time in the presence of horses and interact with them on the ground, either in the fields or indoor spaces. No riding is involved and NO previous experience of horses is required.

You are welcome to book an initial free consultation so that we can get to know each other and establish if it can be an effective coaching relationship.

Themes and Questions

Here are a few themes & questions that my coaching approach can help you to explore. Each session will support you to gain deeper self-awareness and incorporate discussion, reflective and interactive time with the horses supported by appropriate theoretical material.
