SEAHORSE HEALING

Coaching + Support

"Standing in the presence of the horses I was able to open my heart in ways I hadn't in years. I left feeling lighter that day."

Equine Gestalt Coaching

The heart of Seahorse Healing is Equine Gestalt Coaching, a trauma-informed, co-active approach to healing the past so we can move towards a clearer tomorrow. We believe that all life experiences are held in the body, that each cell holds onto these experiences. By moving through an experiential piece of work we are able to shift how the body holds that past trauma. The result is a renewed sense of self and outlook on life as the process continues to take place and create positive change for weeks and months, sometimes years, to come.

In these 90 minute sessions we will explore whatever area of your life you feel could benefit from some extra guidance – past, present or future. Nothing is too big or too small for your sessions with us. The horses and I hold open, loving, non-judgmental space that allows you to dig deep into your personal truth and authentic vulnerability. Equine Gestalt Coaching is a truly transformational process that allows clients the greatest gift we can offer ourselves – the gift of letting go.

Experience the healing power of horses amid fresh air and the quiet of the country just south of Madison. No horse experience necessary.

***Cancellation Policy

EGC SESSIONS: All EGC Sessions require 48 hours notice for cancellation. All sessions cancelled up to 48 hours prior will be rescheduled at our earliest availability. Any cancellations within 48 hours prior to your session are subject to payment in full and do not guarantee a rescheduled session.

EAL Therapeutic Services for All Abilities

Equine Assisted Learning sessions are designed for each individual client’s cognitive, emotional, and physical needs. Each student’s unique skills, abilities, and personality inform the pace and routine from session to session. Students often begin with the basics of horse care and partnership and develop from that foundation based on individual goals and desired outcomes. In this process, students naturally develop a deeper understanding of their self in relation to the world and to others, and they will grow in their understanding of verbal and non-verbal communication – all of which leads to a richer life outside of the arena.

Note that most sessions take place from the ground. Riding is incorporated on a case by case basis. Sessions run from 1 to 2 hours.

“My daughter returns home after her sessions with Nelle and Magic brighter and cheerier. She doesn’t always share about her experiences, but I can sense her growth and improved self-confidence each time.”

Heart-Centered Horsemanship

Heart-Centered Horsemanship is an opportunity to learn about horses from the ground up and from the inside out. We approach horsemanshhip with the horse at the center of each lesson. They can teach us so much when we remember to slow down and listen. 

If you feel drawn to horses but have limited to no experience this is an excellent place to start. I will meet you exactly where you are and gently guide you through the exciting process of gaining ground in your horsemanship skills. Seahorse Healing offers a truly nurturing, non-judgmental environment great for learning about horses, yourself, and the relationship between the two. We are here to introduce even the most timid new horse person to these majestic beings!

$75 / hour * Lessons are 1 to 2 hours

Testimonials

Seahorse Healing

“I can’t thank Nelle enough for her kind, compassionate, and VERY PATIENT work with my 16-year-old daughter who is on the autism spectrum. Nelle, Magic, and even Della (sweet pup!!) relate to my daughter in a way that very few other people do. There’s something profound about working with animals, finding your voice, stretching your comfort zone, and developing your independence — all in a soothing outdoor setting in the gorgeous Wisconsin countryside. Sometimes it’s difficult to quantify my daughter’s growth and progress, but I am convinced that Nelle is a miracle worker.” – Laura B, Wisconsin

“Yesterday I attended a Healing Session with Nelle & Magic over at Seahorse Healing. This time was invaluable for my own personal journey & I highly recommend this form of healing to anyone looking to further their path towards self compassion, forgiveness & love. I was surrounded by my first love, the four leggeds, during our session tucked away in a sweet little
