PERSONAL GROWTH & HEALING
Through Counseling with Horses
Robin Gwin BSW, LSW offers equine assisted counseling for adults and children. These sessions are designed to help people work through any personal issues, pain, or trauma they may have, through meaningful interactions with horses.
This non-clinical approach gives people a unique opportunity for personal growth and healing, by incorporating connection with an equine partner of their choice. In the context of developing a relationship with the horse, participants will benefit from developing increased self- awareness, identifying relationship patterns and communication skills, and practicing new forms of healthy behavior.
Equine assisted counseling is an individual learning process, and does not require horse experience to participate.
This service is built upon the principles of Natural Lifemanship, a trauma-informed model of equine assisted therapy.
Please be aware that I do not diagnose any medical or mental health conditions. Majestic Gifts is an equine assisted counseling process that provides psychosocial interventions and yields therapeutic benefits through the help of horses. The first session will consist of an intake assessment in which I will determine if equine assisted counseling may be beneficial for you at this time.

EAD Facilitator / BSW, LSW
Robin Gwin, BSW, LSW is a Licensed Social Worker. She earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Social Work from The Ohio State University in 2016.
Throughout her college years, Robin served weekly as a volunteer for Youth for Christ at an inner city youth center, where she mentored and worked with underprivileged and at-risk teenagers. Robin interned at the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, working both in the Office of Offender Reentry and at various correctional institutions across Ohio. Upon graduation, she became a case manager at Alvis, a halfway house for incarcerated women who were undergoing substance abuse treatment. Robin believes that all of these experiences helped shaped the direction of her career path, as she discovered her heart’s main desire: to help people heal.
It wasn’t until Robin was introduced to the Natural Lifemanship model of Equine Assisted Therapy that she knew this was what she wanted to pursue. Robin is captivated by the powerful connection that horses can offer to us, which led her to start her own equine assisted counseling business, Majestic Gifts. The authentic, non-judgmental nature of horses combined with their intuition and non-verbal communication skills can help people understand themselves more deeply and grow as a person in a variety of ways. The goal of Majestic Gifts is to truly give people the gift of time and space to embrace wherever they are in their life journey, through personal connection with a horse.
Robin is training through Natural Lifemanship to practice TF-EAP (Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy), by which she will receive dual certification as a Natural Lifemanship Practitioner and Equine Professional.
