Equine Therapy


Field of dreams

Sarah is pleased to be working in partnership with ‘Shine For Life’ now based in The Field of Dreams, Henfield. The Field of Dreams is an amazingly tranquil place that removes all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life and allows you to really connect with your feelings and emotions. It is a safe space to recognise your feelings, acknowledge them and let them pass by.

It’s a space that allows you to reflect on what it is that is important to you, where you want to be heading and what’s holding you back. Once you have the space to be able to create a clear vision it’s so much easier to take those first steps towards it.

Research shows that our environment can increase or reduce feelings of stress. What you see, hear and feel has a direct impact on your mood and nervous system in general. Being in a stressful environment increases your blood pressure. Not only does nature have a positive effect on your emotional wellbeing it can also help physically by reducing blood pressure, heart rate and tension.

The field of dreams is the perfect place to explore ideas, meditate, reflect, learn new skills and coping techniques, breakthrough limiting beliefs, re-evaluate and just be.


Equine assisted therapy £150

Working in either small groups or 1-1 you will be guided through the 8 ways of wellbeing which will encourage exploration of feelings and gives a wonderful opportunity to reflect.

We offer the opportunity to interact with horses in structured sessions on the ground, where the horses can provide amazing insights into our personalities and behaviour patterns. We translate the horse’s natural reactions to the body language or non-verbal messages of our clients, which then enables the person to understand and communicate their own feelings more clearly.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Learning is an evolving field in which horses are used as facilitators in improving the emotional well being of people. We do this by working in structured sessions on the ground (no horse riding) with a qualified mental health professional, a horse specialist and one or more horses.

The client will be asked to interact with the horses and do specific tasks which will require them to apply certain skills including non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking, problem-solving and leadership. EAP is a form of experiential learning, where you learn by doing rather than being shown or told what to do. The discussions that occur during and after the activities allow the client to process what happened and how that learning can relate to other areas of life.

We use horses in this work as they are excellent at sensing people’s emotions and feelings and will often mirror these behaviours, providing great reflections which can be clearly seen by the client.

Horses are large and powerful animals, inspiring awe and respect. This creates a natural opportunity for some to overcome fear and develop confidence. The size and power of the horse are naturally intimidating to many people. Accomplishing a task involving the horse, in spite of those fears, creates confidence and provides wonderful metaphors when dealing with other intimidating and challenging situations in life.

Horses are very much like humans in that they are social animals. They have defined roles within their herds. They would rather be with their peers and they have distinct personalities, attitudes and moods. Most importantly horses are honest, with no hidden agenda, which makes them especially powerful messengers.

EAP is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, families, and groups. EAP addresses a variety of mental health and human development needs including behavioural issues, attention deficit disorder, substance abuse, eating disorders, abuse issues, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication needs.

I went for a little run today.As usual I used the time to reflect.Thoughts just randomly pop into my head. 😁Today I started thinking about the people I help stop smoking.I was thinking what's different about them and why they are so successful.I realised that the most important part of it, is that they have all taken ownership, they realise although I am guiding them, ultimately their success is down to them.💪Many live with partners who smoke, most have some sort of stress in their lives or a big event/holiday/event coming up..and yet they have taken ownership and decided the they are taking control.There will always be challenging situations and stress, it's the nature of life. 🤷‍♀️However once you have taken control none of this matters... you are driving the bus 🚌 ...

What my clients say…

I have been having sessions with ultimate you for weight loss. Within the first few sessions I felt my confidence increase and I feel so much more positive. I would highly recommend giving this a chance. Sarah is lovely too.

What a fantastic lady! As soon as we spoke on the phone it was like we connected and it was fate that it was Sarah that helped me, Sarah is a brilliant lady, lots of communication before I had my hypnosis, listened very carefully and answered any questions I had in regard to the hypnosis.

Come the end of my hypnosis I felt very calm, relaxed like i was a new person, if you need hypnosis Sarah is the lady to go to, she is fantastic!

“Sarah was welcoming, warm and professional. I felt she really designed the sessions around what she learned from/about me. Having struggled with my weight for many years, I couldn’t motivate myself to lose weight and get fitter, as I needed to for the sake of my health. Sarah broke through that. I am now eating less ,listening to her tapes daily and feeling very confident that this time I will do it!”

“I didn’t know what NLP was until I started working with Sarah. She has helped me become more positive and confident and given me lots of strategies to continue working on this. I have two hypnotherapy recordings to continue to listen to. Sarah is very friendly and professional and I have enjoyed my sessions with her. I would definitely recommend Sarah and I would go back for more support if required.”
