My Background

'The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, your nature with Nature'

Joseph Campbell, Author

From a very early age, I developed a connection with and love of horses and have always sensed, that we can learn, a lot from these intelligent and sensitive creatures.  

For many years, it has been a long-term goal of mine, to work with both horses and people, as I believe that horses are excellent teachers in our journey to discover and understand ourselves.

Consequently I was delighted to read about Equine Facilitated Learning and then successfully complete my training with the LEAP Organisation during 2017.

I have spent most of my working life within the creative industry.  I was employed in high-profile positions, in multi award winning organisations such as Ogilvy and Mather, HHCL & Partners and Al Gore’s, Current TV.

I eventually formed my own promotional film company, Contented Brands in 2010.

Although I found my career enjoyable, I also at times found it very stressful.  The only way  I felt I could truly unwind, was to be with nature and connecting with horses.

So when the opportunity came to train with LEAP, I jumped at it - excuse the pun!

My own personal experience confirms, that horses can work as mirrors and teachers in terms of emotional intelligence.  

I believe that horses teach us that every moment has meaning.
