A little bit about me. I was born and raised in Swindon in Wiltshire by Irish parents who both had significant trauma in their lives, my father although undiagnosed had PTSD and my mother suffered as a consequence of tuberculosis. I developed a passion for horses and at 16 went to the Talland School of Equitation where I stayed for three years. I learnt a lot about how to communicate with horses and in retrospect my own healing began. I went on to help various people achieve their goals in the equestrian world as a trainer and a rider. Several years later I began working with people with learning disabilities. I soon learnt that I not only had an ability to relate to horses I also could understand with great empathy the causes of human suffering. I went on to work in a residential unit for adolescents and became the Deputy Manager. This was fundamental and a pivotal point in my learning about how we suffer as a consequence of our experience and how we heal.
