* Shire horse behaviour improved
Many thanks, Elaine, for your work with my Shire mare. Ever since your visit she has been calmer and more confident, which in turn gives me more confidence in my work with her. Thank you for bringing out the best in her.

* Riding confidence restored
I used to ride as a child but stopped from the age of 10 and restarted at 40 years old. In my first year back riding I had a nasty fall whilst out on a fun ride; I broke my collarbone which not only shattered my confidence in riding, but also affected other areas in my life. I sent my horse away on loan and eventually I came to the conclusion that I needed to start again.
Dr. Elaine Atkins came into my horse world - which consisted of me looking after my daughter's horse on the ground and in the stable, but never riding.
After a few consultations using Energy Psychology method with Elaine my life has now turned around; I feel so much more confident and relaxed in all areas of my life. I have even started to go out hacking and I'm currently having riding lessons in the menage at my livery yard and I don't even worry about people watching me anymore.
I am very pleased to say I am having my own horse back now so I can progress my riding further and it's all down to Elaine.

* Behaviour change in competition horse
Elaine came to do some EFT work with a mare that I had been working with that was showing some behavioural problems. Elaine was amazing how she tuned into the mare and immediately the mare was calmer. Elaine was relaxed, professional and positive in her approach to the work that she carried out. I was delighted with her positive outlook and also the full written report I received after the session. Elaine also worked with me to help me become more aware of my own mental approach to the mare. The mare responded extremely well to the session and was noticeably calmer in her work and has since gone on to compete successfully.

* Riding performance improved
Hi, my name is Millie, I am 10 years of age. Elaine has only given me seven lessons on her pony, Smot, and one on my pony. My mum and I have noticed such a huge difference to how I ride now, to how I used to ride. Elaine has improved on my riding but also has taught me lots of new aids that I never knew before. I am a terrible one for my wrong diagonals! But Elaine has given me lots of tips to improve and now it looks so much more balanced when I trot. Also Elaine tells me tips how to improve on my riding and improve the pony - and it's not just for Smot - I then go and work on it with my own pony and it improves how we look too. Elaine has helped me ever so much I couldn't thank her enough.
