Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®

Melisa developed the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®, where there are two Gestaltists present with the client—one human and one equine. Together they provide a therapeutic approach to deep-process emotional healing through the experiential nature of Gestalt work. Contrary to talk therapy, Gestalt work is experiential in nature and offers one of the most efficient means of working with past trauma and finding wholeness.

As of early 2019, there are close to two hundred certified Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® practitioners worldwide from countries as far away as South Africa and Singapore. These graduates, along with their equine partners, help their clients find positive futures and personal happiness.
