Natural Mind Magic

About Caitlin Collins

Cait with Brigit on long reins

Based in the Exmoor National Park in Somerset, I offer coaching to individuals and groups wanting to change limiting behaviour, resolve personal conflict, and find purpose and direction in their lives. I'm especially interested in helping people to free themselves from unwanted habitual or compulsive behaviours.

I started practising meditation in the late 1970s with Zen and Tibetan Buddhist teachers in America and India, and continue to study closely with teachers in the Tibetan tradition; I also facilitate Tibetan Buddhist groups in the south and west of England. I have a degree in Religious Studies and Tibetan Language and qualifications in acupuncture and counselling, have worked in community mediation, and am an NLP Trainer (INLPTA). Since 2003 I've been developing the Natural Mind Magic programme, which brings together Tibetan Buddhist meditation and NLP for personal development, and leading Natural Mind Magic courses in the south and west of England.

However my main passion here on Exmoor is working with horses. I'm interested in mutually beneficial connections with humans and horses, and much of my therapeutic work with people now takes place with the help of my horses, Brigit and Rowan, in horse-facilitated coaching. In addition, I work with horses and riders: as a BHSAI with a lifetime's experience with horses, I use some of the principles of natural horsemanship, emphasising a warm-hearted, friendly approach and positive methods including clicker training, for starting and bringing on young horses, problem-solving, and developing confidence in nervous horses (and their humans). I particularly enjoys working with ponies (especially Exmoors), Arabs, and cobs. MORE
