Feedback from coaching clients;
'Having come to a standstill with my management
style I quickly became frustrated with a lack of development. Undertaking the
Myers Briggs Type Indicator was a great insight into how I could continue my development whilst
meeting the changing demands of my role, however, without the skill, patience
and insight of Tracey, I would have
never achieved the full benefit of the process. I cannot speak highly enough of
Tracey and the continued support she has given me through this
process and I urge anyone currently standing at the same crossroads I was to
take the plunge and reap the benefits'. Sgt, Northumbria Police.

individual who through her person centered approach brings out the best in
those she works with.” Business Manager, Northumbria Police
'Tracey is a good listener and coach, helping you to
understand how you need to achieve your end goal. She allows her team the
autonomy and responsibility to work on projects, thereby, promoting the
learning and development of the individual and the team. Tracey is a confident
speaker in front of groups, displaying her enthusiasm and focus to meet the
objectives of the engagement.' HR Masters Student
“Tracey has the ability to, not only get to the heart of an issue, but
to see it from different points of view. Her empathic, non-judgemental
style means that she is able to engage with others easily, encouraging
their participation in moving things forward." Management Consultant
Feedback from Gallop4Growth sessions;
'Wow! What an amazing session that was - thank you so much.' Gallop 4 Growth Client after one session
The discussion about how understanding the
horses could help us understand our own relationships. I also thought that
Tracey was very sympathetic and understanding of everyone. Equine Facilitated Development Workshop participant.
"An excellent, unique experience and group activity!" Participant in a taster session.
didn’t quite know what to expect from the session but my horse-coach
Sal had no such qualms. She ran around the ring, rolled on her back and
kept coming over to say hello. Her non-judgemental, in-the-moment
being helped to strip away a lot of complicating human stuff that often
gets in the way of understanding who we are, what we believe and how we
relate to others. Tracey’s gently probing approach and her knowledge of
horses combined to produce an enjoyable, enriching and
enlightening experience.” Richard Simpson. Richard Simpson Associates.
By watching how the horses
reacted I think it helped understand human interaction as well.
It was very interesting and a
great way to introduce people to how groups of individuals interact and so
lends itself to team building. Equine Facilitated Development Workshop participant.
An environment that encourages you to think deeply
about what coaching and leadership are really about.Really gets you thinking about body language Loads of
references back to behaviour in organisations, who leads change, how do we
generate buy in, how do we respond to reluctance, intransigence etc Every session will be different depending on
the horse(s)’ frame of mind. Equine Facilitated Development Workshop participant.

one to one basis or managing larger groups. Her enthusiasm is
infectious which contributes towards the participative style of events

contributions into the fabric of the broader issues, She ensures that
the contribution of each individual is recognised and valued while

and within half an hour I was cantering on her, completely happy, no
Fantastic instructor and coach! The things I like best are how positive
you are and that you explain HOW to change things not just what to
change - also you build things up in achievable steps. I feel I've made
progress in my riding for the first time in years and recently achieved
my best dressage score yet! Also my (teenage) kids love their lessons
