As a specialist physiotherapist working with young people experiencing long term unremitting pain Alison has witnessed how suffering, lack of empowerment and distress effects ones ability to cope.
Using CBT and Mindfulness techniques she has been able to help the young person recognise their inner strength. With a positive confident mindset their ability to cope and succeed grows exponentially.
It is exciting to see how the feedback from an interaction with a horse at liberty can similarly, by immediate and non-judgemental feedback, help build self confidence and self awareness. As an EFL coach Alison is keen to assist youngsters to achieve their potential by an increased awareness of themselves and their behaviours.
Alison”s two horses are her best teachers.
