What is Equine Gestalt Coaching?
A common question that is asked of Dr. Wilkinson is “what is this Equine Gestalt Coaching?” Bottom line, experiencing an EGC session will really bring this method into clearer focus as compared to verbally explaining it. That being said, please watch a wonderful short video that helps to explain all about the EGC Method. (it’s the video to the right)
In brief, Equine Gestalt Coaching is an experiential method of resolving “unfinished business” which can be developed as early as in our childhood to as recent as today. Gestalt, which means “wholeness,” is a form of therapy that encourages the coach to develop a creative experiment which allows the client – in the present moment – to be safely yet fully immersed into the experience of this unfinished business in order to resolve it. This process allows the Mind, Body and Spirit of the client to heal and thus allowing each individual to move forward. The horses are an integral part of this process of self-discovery and healing.
Utilizing the Gift of Equus to help humans to heal from within. The horse can co-partner with us to enable people to take steps towards a path of recovery from traumatic experiences, illness, loss, fear and despair thus allowing the Spirit to soar free again.
EGC is a coaching technique that can be applied to a limitless array of problems or situations ( www.egcmethod.com ). I will work with anyone to tackle whatever issue that is presently in your life – or refer you to a fellow Certified Practitioner. It is my Vision to help people to move past limiting beliefs that can arise when our lives are affected by illness, injury and/or pain.
Think about this …
An average of 400 physicians commit suicide annually. That’s over 33 per month.
46% of physicians screen positive for burnout.
Half of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care physicians screen positive for burnout.
37% of EMS professionals have contemplated suicide.
Why what I’m doing is different from other Equine Assisted Progams.
Individual resilience involves behaviors, thoughts, and actions that promote personal wellbeing and mental health. It refers to a person’s ability to withstand, adapt to, and recover from adversity. People can learn coping skills to adapt to stress and maintain or return to a state of mental health wellbeing.
