Rachael Gibson
EPI Model EAL Practitioner
I provide a holistic approach to wellbeing through my work with horses and often combine other energy balancing techniques and therapies such as reiki, reflexology, guided visualisations and energy work.
I have been in private practice for over 10 years in helping people come back into balance and in 2017 trained with the EPI to incorporate horse wisdom into my toolbox of modalities.  A unique experience I have created is a 45 minute equine assisted learning session with the horses, followed by a 45 minute healing session on a massage table outside in a beautiful garden setting with the horses still present.  In the winter months the healing session moves into my treatment room inside, out of the elements.
I work with my herd of 4 horses to provide self awareness, connection and help people be the best version of themselves.  I also help clients connection in both their spiritual and personal development.  Each session is targeted around the individual client and what they are currently working through.  I love working with people who are working through anxiety and depression, as I have a lot of experience with these conditions, and I know how beneficial this work can be in helping people being resourced as they navigate their way back to equilibrium.
