rider story - Áine McGarry


What were the challenges/problems you wanted Helen's help with? 
Lack of confidence mostly with jumping

How did Helen help? 
Therapy sessions πŸ˜† seriously though talking it all through figuring out when and why problems started and most importantly methods to help. We did a few hypnosis recordings tailored especially for me and they were a massive help. The final one Helen made me, I still listen to when I feel I need a boost

What were the most useful techniques/tools that you learnt? 
Breathing techniques, hypnosis, self awareness and being kinder to myself in my thoughts.

How did sessions with Helen help/benefit you?  
Massively! I felt I had tools to turn to and use when things got difficult. She gave me a real insight to myself as not only a rider but the type of person I am

What did you achieve as a result of working with Helen? 
I found a calmness and quiet confidence that I never had before with riding. it gave me strength to make my own decisions on what way I wanted to learn and made me realise I can take more control by believing in my abilities. My horse and I are out out competing regularly at Riding club and finally having fun.

What would you say to a rider thinking about working with Helen?     
I would say don't hesitate.. go and ring her asap you will never regret it, I certainly haven't . She is not only brilliant at what she does but also a genuinely lovely person to boot.
