ABOUT ME

I am an idealist with my feet firmly in the ground, I love travelling and adventure, I have a restless soul in continuous search of equilibrium and “taking out the best of everything” in life. I love nature and I adore animals, specially dogs and horses but mind you, if we look at all the animal Kingdom it has a lot to teach us. I am totally convinced that the horse is a perfect complement for coaching when we want to work with non verbal language (which represents 75% of our comunication), the sense of bonding in a team and a natural kind of leadership, amongst other things.

I pursue as well “the Gift of Nature”, because living away from it means giving up big portions of our intelligence and creativity.

I have realised, after many years, the supreme importance of living in the “here and now”, and not living so much in our brain, that many times blocks our intuition.

I believe in the process of making decisions in a free and open-minded way, without the burdens of the past and the fears of the future….because only then will our actions come from the aim and the passion, to make sure that if a situation arises, the answer will be more intuitive and harmonic.

I know that to succeed in life, all we do has to be based in trust and respect. Without self-confidence and trust in others you cannot achieve a project or carry out common goals in a team. Without real trust creativity does not flow, to have self-confidence has a great deal to do with: not being satisfied with the first idea that comes out of our heads, to be able to show our vulnerability without fear, with adopting a positive emotional tone that shows assertiveness, as well as a healthy self-esteem.

For many years, I have worked as a freelance journalist for many media groups as Joly, RBA y Hachette.
I´ve been Comunication and Institutional director of José Manuel Entrecanales Foundation from 2009 until october 2014. The fact that I’ve been working with entrepeneurs and innovation projects for 5 years has made  me realise what coaching can do to help startups in terms of creativity, intuition, resilience and negotiation.

The fact that a have been so fond of horses since I was a child and the passion for the world of coaching, has taken me to learn about horse ethology and to investigate how to combine both things to benefit people searching for personal and professional development and willing to make changes in their lives.

WORK AREAS

WORKING AREAS ARE DIRECTED TO PEOPLE AND TEAMS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR NEW EXPERIENCES IN COACHING

My coaching sessions are orientated to people tired of rigid questionnaires and consultant programs, too serious quite often.

My proposal is to accompany my clients, individually or in teams, through a series of practical and enlightening exercises, even funny ones, with the objective of awakening intuition and the vitality of senses (mainly observing from different angles and active listening). The final purpose is to gain self-awareness and to be able to discover and liberate all the talent in order to achieve targeted objectives.

The tecniques i use come from a very eclectic and integrated angle, ranging from various fields such as humanist psychology, emotional intelligence, PNL (Programed neuro linguistics), systemic configurations, psychodrama and Management…

FUNDAMENTS AND METHOD

Part of my work is based on the new discoveries of neuroscience and in the importance of neurogenesis, present in the entire life cycle of people when there is aim to progress , and that leads to new and continuous neuronal connections that enable us to achieve changes for the better, in both personal or professional matters.

I believe in the idea that everybody can be the author of their own biography, and that the most important thing is to know how they want to live their lives and what do they have to learn to get to their desired situation.

TYPE OF  SESSIONS

  • Individual sessions of personal or executive coaching with or without horses. From 60/90 mm of duration.
  • Group sessions with or without horses to work determinate skills in half a day or a whole day.
  • Team programs of systemic coaching for firms and organisations with or without horses. After a previous interview with the client, the process of coaching and the Workshops will be designed according to the needs of the client and can vary in duration.

HORSE COACHING

A POWERFULL VEHICLE FOR CHANGE

From both the passion for horses and the good results obtained after coaching with the help of horses CONFIANTIA was born, a joint project thought out with Mercedes Martinez-Piñeiro and Constanza González. (View PDF)

We designed Workshops helped by our horses to work different skills individually or with teams interested in innovating learning processes. All the exercises are “feet on the ground” so there is no need of previous experience with horses.

 

The horse is a powerful archetype and provides an interesting metaphoric scenery to work a lot of values and skills. Through a series of exercises that are able to take people out of their “comfort zone”, interacting with horses is a completely new situation very suitable to lead to important changes within personal or professional development.

Horses, thanks to their sensitive limbic brain, are teachers in lots of skills, because they relate to humans perceiving their non verbal language, coherence and emotions, identifying their strengths and their improvement areas. Though their clear signs and answers they give important information, so after the exercises there is a debriefing to extrapolate all that has come out to the personal or professional scenario, in order to improve objectives and work out action plans.

Horses are biolologically prey animals, they live the present, are intuitive and depend on all their senses to survive. Horses are social animals, and from their herds we can extrapolate many attributes to working teams in our firms, things such as shared leadership, group inteligence, synchronicity, or establishing boundaries.

COACH’S NEWS BOARD

WHAT IS COACHING

Coaching is a learning process which enhances personal development and aims to achieve your full potential in all aspects of live.

In a coaching process , the coach accompanies the client (which maybe a person, a group or team) on the road to achieving those aims and targets wanted, whether they be personal or professional.

The main tool of coaches is formulating powerful questions that make people to acquire a deeper understanding about themselves and the situations they are dealing with, with the purpose of adapting better to their circumstances and/or to introduce fundamental changes that will take them to improve their lives.

Looking into other tools to improve coaching sessions I have found the valuable help of horses. Coaching with the help of horses has been used for a long time in USA and in UK amongst other countries, although in Spain is not very common.

The fact of introducing exercises with the help of horses in coaching has many advantages. It is a practical “hands on” training which places people in the “here and now” and opens a favourable attitude for them towards change. It also helps to animate coaching sessions and to reduce or eliminate apparent blockages. Through a series of exercises “on the ground”, horses can show us who we really are without being judgmental and that provokes reflection in the person or the team.

MINDFULNESS

A FREE STRESS MIND FINDS LEARNING EASIER

Mindfulness is the natural ability to be consciously attentive and optimally present in the “here and now” .

Like adults, children are often too busy and distracted. The “on button” works, but where is the “off button”? By exposing children to mindfulness from a young age, they learn to observe and concentrate better, to be in touch with their bodies and to relax.

The program that i teach after my certification in Holand is the Eline Snel Method in mindfulness for children and teenagers, an evidence-based course, inspired by the 8-week stress reduction course by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This training has big international recognition and is taught in many countries in several ambits (www.elinesnel.com)

This atention training program called “Mindfulness matters!” helps children and youngsters to develop their inner potential, offering them the possibility to train their atention, concentration, patience, kindness, tolerante and peace of mind. This way, they will be able to handle better the situations that arise in their life, because a free stress mind finds learning easier, comes out with better solutions to problems and acts with less reactivity.

A FREE STRESS MIND FINDS LEARNING EASIER

  • Eline Snel has developed this playful, simple, effective and clear method based in   practice and after many pilots with children of all ages during 30 years of experience.
  • The method is tailored to four age groups and has four different training handbooks; the ages that i teach go from 5 to 8 years, 8 to 12 years and 12 to 14 years. The method has been translated to 4 languages and is taught all around the world.
  • The four trainer´s handbooks are detailed and completely teacher-proof. The two first ones contain 8 weekly lessons of 45mn and the third one contains 10 weekly lessons of one hour.
  • The Academie voor Mindful Teaching (AMT) child trainer course is thorough, personal and emphasises the importante of a mindful attitude from the trainer and a continous supervision.
  • The training is suitable for primary and secondary schools and special education, as well as for private practice and at home.
