Equine Assisted Coaching or Counselling


Coaching and counselling one-to-one sessions...


We offer one-to-one sessions combining equine facilitated experiential learning with coaching or counselling. Like any other coaching or counselling sessions it is best to come for a series of sessions, normally a minimum of three. We offer the first introductory session free.


Equine Assisted Coaching


Equine assisted coaching offers a combination of professional coaching and equine facilitated experiential learning where we focus on moving forward in your professional and/or personal life. You start off and end as you would in a normal coaching session with somewhere between 60% and 80% of the time engaging with the horses.


Sessions last for 90 minutes, and on your first coaching session we start by discussing and mutually agreeing how you would like to work and how many sessions you would like to achieve your objectives. We offer the first session free so you can make sure being coached assisted with horses is right for you. 


How much does it cost?

From now until autumn 2019 we are offering a free introductory taster session. One-to-one coaching or counselling sessions cost £60 for one and a half hours.

Equine Assisted Counselling


Equine assisted counselling offers a combination of traditional talking therapy and working therapeutically and experientially with the horses in a safe, confidential environment. 

During a session the client starts and finishes with traditional counselling, this will take up 60%/70% of the session, the other 40%/30% is spent engaging with the horses therapeutically. The more traditional counselling part happens inside siting down and talking, or if the client chooses, and when the weather is suitable sessions can be longer and we can stay outside, walking and talking, being with the horses, and/or doing artwork, writing and reflecting within the therapeutic process of counselling.

Where as equine facilitated learning, art of horse whispering and coaching sessions can be a one off session, with counselling sessions it is best to contract for a group of at least 3 sessions, 3 sessions to 12 sessions is normal, and some clients re-contract for much longer. We start with a free session to make sure equine assisted counselling and Adventures with Horses is right for you. During this first session you get the a chance to engage with the horses and discuss and mutually agree how you would like to work and how many sessions you would like.

Adventures with Horses counselling work is provided by Sue Blagburn and is professionally supervised and abides by the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.

Between now and the autumn of 2019 we are able to offer discounted prices. Although Sue Blagburn is already highly qualified in equine assisted experiential learning she has chosen to study towards an Advanced Diploma in Integrative, Humanistic Gestalt Counselling. This means she can offer counselling within her work with horses as part  of her workplacement. Sue has been training since Sept 2015 - and as she moves towards qualifying, her training organisation Dartmoor Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy and Safe Space for Counselling, has approved Adventures with Horses as the place where she can continue to do her work placements. This is as part of her advanced training as an integrative humanistic gestalt counsellor.

 “Horses have been transporting us on outer journeys for thousands of years. In the 21st century, equine facilitated experiential learning is a profound new way of horses 
transporting us on inner journeys from where we are to where we need to be.”
