My Experience - the courses
My own ongoing personal development is very important to me to ensure I am always in the best place possible to offer healing but also to bring as much as I can to my sessions to help you and your animals.
Lafayette Equine Healing & Communication Association Certificate Training
Horse Healing - Horses Voice Equine Healer - 2.5 year course
I trained with Elaine for 2 years before becoming an Approved Horses Voice Healer. I continued healing under this umbrella for a couple of years attending regular workshops with Elaine and being assessed by her each year. I am no longer a member of the Association as my path is taking me in another direction for now and so I am unable to attend the necessary workshops but hopefully in time I will again!
The course included much personal growth and development to ensure I am in a position to offer healing, in addition:
UK veterinary law, Health & Safety around horses
What causes a horse to be labelled a “problem”
Causes of emotional trauma in horses
The horses emotions
Relationship issues between horse and rider
How to translate the horses actions
Right/ Left brain, Horses Aura
and much more!
