    Liz Morrison – coaching around Farringdon, Salisbury and Bournemouth UK.

    Liz Morrison is a BHS riding instructor ( BHSII, BHS Stable Manager) and sports coach specialising in supporting riders through advanced coaching techniques and sports psychology.  She was one of the first ICF Professional Certified Coaches in the UK, and is an NLP Master Practitioner and Advanced Modeller.

    She first became aware of the importance of mental attitude in sport when she was awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship to Australia in 1993. She went to find out how the Australian teams were able to win so many equestrian medals. What she found was an openness about their need to improve and willingness to adapt their approaches that led to their success. Upon her return to the UK she researched the area and started training in NLP and the newly emerging techniques of coaching. She has trained in depth with the original developers of the subject, and has assisted them on their courses.

    In her work as a sports psychologist for riders, Liz Morrison found that an on-going focus on learning and self awareness  is the core to building confidence.  When you start to think about  ‘how you know what you don’t know’  you build the humility and openness that horses need from their riders….

    She is passionate about horses, the connection to nature that they offer, and what they can teach us about ourselves. Her courses about applying NLP to riding have been attended by hundreds of people and she is a frequent contributor to equestrian magazines. Her book, Simple Steps to Riding Success is a great success around the world, and has already been translated into several languages. She is also co-author of ‘The Veterinary Care of the Horse’ with Sue Devereux, published by JA Allen. It has sold over 140,000 copies and it set a new standard for clarity and ease of use in the stable yard.

    Earlier in her career she worked in Marketing and Consultancy at Nestle, Mars, Rank Holidays and Accenture. She now runs experiential workshops and is an executive coach for companies. She lives near Salisbury, and has a group of horses with whom to play, train and sometimes compete in affiliated dressage and show jumping.  She is highly approachable, with a lively sense of humour and loves to work with people who want to experience their relationship with horses more successfully.

    Understanding  NLP qualfications

    Working with an experienced and well trained NLP Sports Psychologist will help you set achievable goals, clear blocks, learn from negative memories and so help you motivate yourself. We can provide the names of people we have personally worked with who love and understand horses and are well qualified to help individuals apply NLP Sports psychology to their personal situations. In the first instance contact us and we will forward your details to the practitioner closest to you. Their prices are likely to be similar to those outlined in our terms and need to be agreed in advance.

    Please remember that the people we recommend above are usually not qualified or insured to teach the techniques of riding and training horses. They will work alongside your riding instructor to help you on the mental aspect of riding. We do however have some suggestions for finding a good riding instructor:
