Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator
Monique grew up with horses and has a great appreciation for the healing and wisdom that horses provide.
She has spent a lifetime studying herd dynamics and survival instincts which influence greatly
the horse-human connection.
Along the way, Monique has attained her certification as a Clinical Hypnotist, Counselling Skills, Trauma Informed Training, Transformational Coaching along with extensive training in a variety of Equine Facilitated Wellness modalities and is a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator.
All these experiences have aided in her ability

“Monique & Robin & their horses literally changed my life. I have experienced many healing and personal growth modalities elsewhere but none yielded the success of the guided equine therapy with Leading Edge Academy. It has succeeded where no others could. The horses offer such gentle guidance, profound insight is possible. Rest assured that you will never be judged by the horses or by these 2 highly-trained and gifted facilitators. You will always feel safe and supported in these competent and caring hands, hooves & hearts!”
