Equine Guided Coaching – USA
- Melisa Pearce (http://www.touchedbyahorse.com/)
As a lifelong horsewoman and psychotherapist, Melisa began developing her Equine Gestalt Coaching Method(TM) while working with clients for private sessions and retreats in Flagstaff, Arizona in 1989.
Through her therapeutic Gestalt work with clients on her ranch, Melisa discovered people became more grounded, centered, confident and secure when working with horses using her methods. Redesigning her own life, Melisa and family moved from Arizona to Colorado where she established her parent company Touched by a Horse Inc. through which she offers her coaching for individuals, groups and business owners.
Selected as one of 10 horsewomen to be a contributing author for the book Horse as Teacher, Melisa wrote about her pathway to authenticity through her horses. In 2009, this was followed by her own award winning book Eponalisa. She was chosen as one of the top 50 horsewomen in the US for her seminal work.
In 2008, Melisa felt guided to launch her Touched by a Horse Certification Program for those who desire to study with one of the founders of this sector of the Equine Industry.
