What led you to Rachael?
We met through our EAFPN (Equine Assisted & Facilitated Practitioners Network) and EAHAE (Association for Horse Assisted Education) networks and I was drawn to the idea of having someone communicate with my horses.
How was your call helpful?
Yes and no. Much more yes than no I hasten to add. Yes, because it gave me a fresh perspective and a more in-depth understanding of Georgie in particular. I found it profoundly moving to hear that our feelings are mutual – especially the notion he “has my back”. It also confirmed to me that Jonny is more complicated than I thought and that we need to explore a different approach with him. The “no” part of my answer – because it throws up more questions than answers in some ways.
Was it what you expected?
I expected it to be a powerful experience and it was.
What were you most surprised by?
The depth of feeling it brought up. I was surprised by how much Georgie loves his work. I was not at all surprised to have it confirmed to me that he is a beautiful soul.
What was the most valuable aspect of your call?
The important insights which will have already had an impact on my thinking.
Has your relationship changed as a result?
I feel I’m picking up more subtle feedback from all of them, and if anything my love for these guys has grown because I am reminded how much they give to me… I think I care more deeply than ever about having a good relationship with all of them. I’ve certainly started trying to have a dialogue with Jonny more often – telling him how much he is valued and asking what I can do about the leading issue. Georgie has always had me by the heartstrings – so no change there – but I think I’m more confident it’s a two-way thing.
A potential client is on the fence about whether to have a call with Rachael; what would you say to them?
Well worth it – nothing to lose and some amazing insights to gain.
