Kelly as a teenager I went through a trauma. I went through lots of counselling that didn’t help at the time. It left me angry. Horse were my salvation and working through the IH courses gave me more help and purpose than any counselling did. This is one of the toughest times in my career as a nurse. Many of us wonder if we will survive this. The tool from the courses that helps me the most is the breathing. The out breath especially. I just wanted to say Thank You.
