Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Unleashing Confidence and Embracing New Riding Experiences

In the equestrian world, riding isn't just a hobby; it's a way of life for many. This blog post delves into the personal journey of an individual who, confronted with riding anxiety and a diminishing passion for their once-beloved activity, found solace and renewed confidence through two sessions of cognitive-behavioral hypnotherapy with the skilled therapist, Kerry.

Presenting Issue: A Crisis of Confidence in the Saddle:

Our client faced a poignant challenge — a dwindling confidence in riding, accompanied by a loss of excitement and a sense of sadness at the thought of losing a cherished hobby. Negative thoughts overshadowed the positive, and imagining worst-case scenarios became a common mental exercise. The client found themselves avoiding challenging situations, opting for a safer ground approach, leading to a cycle of anxiety and a noticeable dip in mood.

Client Goals: Regaining Positivity and Exploring New Riding Experiences:

The desire to break free from the clutches of negative thoughts and reignite the joy of riding drove our client's journey. The goal was clear — to regain positive thoughts and the enthusiasm to explore new and exciting riding experiences.

Overcoming Riding Anxiety

Therapeutic Journey: Rediscovering Passion in Two Sessions:

Under the guidance of Kerry, a practitioner of cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy, the client embarked on a transformative path. In just two sessions, Kerry skillfully addressed underlying causes of anxiety and reignited the client's love for riding. Through guided sessions, the client reconnected with positive memories of enjoying horseback rides and, most importantly, gained the confidence to push themselves to embrace new riding experiences.

Client Feedback: A Renewed Sense of Purpose:

The client's feedback spoke volumes about the effectiveness of the therapeutic journey. Kerry's soothing demeanor and ability to put the client at ease were highlighted. Despite initial skepticism and numerous issues presented during discussions, the client felt happy, relaxed, and energized after the sessions. The therapy served as a kickstart, prompting the client to take positive steps towards regaining their former self.

Conclusion: Embracing the Future with Confidence:

While the journey is ongoing, the client's newfound energy and commitment to pushing personal boundaries are promising signs. Positive steps, such as making plans and engaging with fellow riders, indicate a shift towards a brighter and more confident future in the saddle.

This case study illustrates the transformative power of cognitive-behavioral hypnotherapy in overcoming riding anxiety and rediscovering passion.
