Belief Busting:
How to Shift Your Showing Up
through Inspired Action

An Equus Coaching Experience

with Marlene Armstrong & Maureen Donoghue

Do any of these sound familiar?

“If you want something done properly, do it yourself!”

“How many times do I have to repeat myself?”

"It shouldn't be this hard! Why isn't anything working!!!!!"

Indeed! How often do you find yourself not understood?

You certainly are clear about what needs to get done and have lots of ideas on how to get there.  However, confusion and chaos reign.  How can you breakthrough so others hear and understand what you want?  What if the key to breaking this pattern lies within your core beliefs?

The question remains, are we conscious of how we are showing up in such situations?  To what degree are we chameleons, shape shifting to the point that we might be unrecognizable from one context to another?  Do we have persistent patterns that find us being consistently “small” or perhaps taking up the whole room? In fact, could these very patterns be pushing others away or even rendering us invisible?

In this session, you will have the opportunity to experience the practice of Equus Coaching.  As you participate in a team activity with the horses, Equus Coaches (two legged and four legged) will guide you to powerful insights regarding your thoughts, feelings and behaviours.  You will be able to become more conscious of what is driving you: Your mind/ego or your deep guidance system.  This experience will bring you into the place of leading from centre while moving forward in a connected fashion with the collective wisdom of the herd.

In addition to experiencing Equus Coaching, you will have the opportunity to utilize techniques and tools throughout the session which will in turn be packaged as take-away resources for your own practice.

Through this session, you will learn key principles and practices in coaching your clients so that they can:

~ Identify and turn around “presenting thoughts” that block their progress

Reveal core belief systems that generate “presenting thoughts”

~ Develop deeper connections and understanding of somatic feedback

~ Increase awareness of their impact on others

~ Identify “doable” next steps to anchor and integrate new ways of showing up

Join in this session to uncover and “bust” those belief systems that do not serve. Find out how to show up in a transparent and authentic manner for the benefit of all. Call on courage to reveal the power of the shadow and the truth of your brilliance. Prepare to bust through!

The Equus Coaches of UnbridledCoaching.com

Marlene Armstrong has had a passion for horses as far back as she can remember. She always knew that they were very special beings that could heal your soul and assist you in finding your true self. She immediately recognized Equus Coaching as a tremendous opportunity to help others and resolved to bring it to the Nation’s Capital. Marlene owns Foxview Stables in Ottawa, where she offers Equus coaching to teams, executives and individuals.  Her 2 daughters, Jenna and Morgan, manage the daily operations of the boarding and horse training side of Foxview Stables.

Marlene has an Honours degree – Bachelor of Commerce, with a concentration in Human Resources.  She has more than 35 years’ experience in project management, leading inter-disciplinary teams, organizing major corporate events, coaching and team building. She is a certified Equus Coach, having completed Koelle Simpson’s year-long program. Marlene’s vision is to expand Equus Coaching opportunities throughout Canada.  She plans to transform Foxview Stables into a world-renown Equus Coaching Centre.  Marlene loves to work in a collaborative fashion and hopes to expand her services worldwide. Her desire to help her clients reach their true potential and find their ‘essential self’ is unsurpassed.


Maureen Donoghue’s main focus for the last 30 years has revolved around helping others in their personal and professional development. She has taught with a separate school board, as well as designed, delivered and evaluated technical and professional development programs for the Canadian Federal Government. She also established a national network of organization development specialists and developed and implemented human resource strategies for wide-scale organizational transitions. Maureen also managed program evaluation and public opinion functions for a federal crown corporation.

Maureen is a strong believer that despite the challenges that an organization may face, when employees are empowered to learn, everyone benefits. Maureen’s work has been recognized with multiple Federal Deputy Minister awards and more importantly, with the confidence shown to her by management and employees at all levels.

She has obtained a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and religion, a Bachelor of Education with a concentration in counselling and a Master of Education in educational counselling. In addition to travelling and reading, Maureen’s passions include agility training for dogs where the learning opportunities are infinite!

She discovered Equus Coaching in 2010 and was immediately inspired by its tremendous promise, particularly in terms of the nature’s potential to assist in continuous learning and self-improvement. Maureen underwent a year-long training program with Koelle Simpson, a world renowned Master Equus Coach. Maureen has since been applying that training in the National Capital Region with her business partner Marlene Armstrong, and has never looked back. Maureen is particularly adept at putting people at ease, thereby creating a relaxed environment that is more conducive to learning and having a little fun.
