Unbridling Your Brilliance is part of Planned Transitions Consulting & Coaching Inc. a unique and innovative collective whose “soul” purpose is to bring individuals one step closer to discovering their authentic selves, resolving issues, and creating sustainable change. We partner with like-minded organizations to support our programs.
The foundation of the Unbridling program is our partnership with horses, who act as co-facilitators for personal growth and learning. Our equine facilitated programs are highly experiential, allowing participants to interact with the horses at a personal level.
Most of our Personal Coaching, Business Coaching and Healing programs are held at our beautiful retreat centre, in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Special retreats may also be held in other parts of British Columbia and the Lower Mainland.
Master Coach & Intuitive Healer
At the age of 45, I was called by the horses to begin a journey of incredible discovery, possibility, and spiritual connection with nature. Not unlike many thousands of women around the world, I found horses for the first time in my life (or rather they found me).
I am a Master Coach, certified in Business Coaching and Personal Coaching, and have been coaching since 1999. I am absolutely passionate about my work in the field of somatics, movement, language, moods, and emotions. Combining these distinctions with my work with the horses has taken me to incredible depths of joy, freedom, and new expression of my emotional self.
I have studied with some amazing women from the U.S. who are pioneers in the work of Horse Facilitated Experiential Learning. I am an apprentice in Barbara Rector’s, Adventures in Awareness Program out of Tucson, Arizona. You can read about Barbara’s wonderful story of how she got into the field of Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning on her website. My work has also been highly influenced by Linda Kohanov, an internationally recognized innovator in their field of Equine Experiental Learning, and author of The Tao of Equus, Riding Between the Worlds, and Way of the Horse.
I have attended many programs with both of these women, and have also studied with Ariana Strozzi, and numerous other incredible teachers – both two-legged and four-legged here in Canada and the U.S.
I have a strong commitment to authentic leadership and am certified in many “people” based programs including:
- Conflict Resolution & Negotiation – Justice Institute of B.C.
- Organization Coaching & Learning Program – The Newfield Network
- The Coaching Clinic – Corporate Coach University
- Leading Transition – Willian Bridges & Associatess & Associates
- HeartMath® Practitioner – HeartMath
- Trauma-Informed Practices Certification (currently pending) – HeartMath
- Facilitator of The Leadership Challenge – Kouzes, Posner
- Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) – The Creating We® Institute
I work with people from all walks of life – business owners, salespeople, leaders, organizational professionals and anyone who is seeking a more purposeful, passionate life. My story of the horses can be found on my blog. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about how you can experience the power of learning with the horses!
Don't miss the opportunity to experience a lasting and sustainable transformation as the horses inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and embrace your best self.
