WHO IS MIDWIFE / EQUITHERAPIST KRISTIEN GIELENS?

Every human has the right to find happiness, to live instead of to be lived.

 

MY WORK AS A MIDWIFE

 
I once started my career as a bachelor in economic management. But soon I felt that that was not my cup of tea and I started studying as a midwife. My life and work soon became completely different. I first worked in a hospital setting, later as an independent midwife and teacher at a university of applied sciences, in midwifery training. Today, in my work as a midwife, I focus on the problems that can arise around pregnancy: pre- and post-natal depression, fertility problems, unfulfilled pregnancy wish.
 

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

 
As a midwife, I specialize in counseling mother and child. You can contact me to help you find answers to fundamental questions about the relationship between mother and child. My horses and foals are my tools to visualize the life of a herd in full nature. I link that image back to your family and your relationships and the profound effects they can have on your daily life.

Children and adults who are struggling with certain problems such as fears, concentration problems, depression and burnout can also contact me to find the meaning and essence of trust.
 

All this under the guidance of me and my horses Mivano, Laura and Nathaniel



 

EQUITHERAPY - MY TEAM: HORSE POWER

 
Horses have been a common thread in my life since childhood.

My dream became reality when I went to California to study horsemanship and equine therapy with the American horse trainer Monty Roberts. Working with horses and learning to interpret their nonverbal communication awakened my consciousness.

Learning to use leadership nonviolently and making contact with your inner strength, were a wonderful revelation to me.




PERSONAL COACH MIVANO


Mivano is a warmhearted gelding of 8 years old. He is a Belgian Warmblood, and I raised and trained him with the best techniques, such as nonviolence and intrinsic motivation. My knowledge of horsemanship that I acquired at Monty Roberts in California USA, was a crucial element in his upbringing.
 
Mivano has incredible compassion, will continuously screen your environment for safety and security and will also fully protect you. He is a real teddy bear of more than 500 kg, who can give you a cuddle when you return home.

 


PERSONAL COACH LAURA


Laura is a full-fledged Frisian mare of 16 years old. She is a rock, a true alpha mare and incredibly consistent with every member of the herd. She will always go straight to her target, which is necessary for the wellbeing of the herd, and she does so with such peace and confidence that you will accept her leadership without resistance.
 
Laura is a beautiful mother, who is currently raising and nurturing a foal. Ask her for clarity and rest in your heart and she will give it to you unconditionally.

 


PERSONAL COACH NATHANIEL OF THE HAMBOSCH


Nathaniel is a full-fledged Frisian stallion, son of Laura and Adel, who was born on June 5, 2020 on a meadow in the full nature of the Eden-Equine. As a midwife I was able to assist and I still cherish the experience of the incredible power of nature.
 
Nathaniel is a zippy, skittish  young horse, very curious and always eager to learn. He will meet you with great enthusiasm. I have trained him according to the same methods as Mivano and he is doing great, while of course, he still has  a lot of growing up to do. Still, it is very interesting to see his interactions with the other members of the herd. It gives you insights about determining boundaries, leadership and the connection between mother and child.
