Chevalliance coaching and the COTAC© and CEL© methodology, coaching assisted with horses school were created in 2008 by Florentine van Thiel.

It is aiming at military, company directors, managers, individuals (one on one sessions) who wish to develop their relational skills as well as people who want to become facilitators.

Do you feel related to this :

– is it hard for you to feel confident, to trust others ?
– do you notice that more of the same (thing) leads to the same result ?
– do you feel it’s a waste of time listening to your colleagues/loved ones/close relative?
– have your fears, frustrations and worries made your life unbearable ?
– do you feel exhausted working with a group ?
– do you think about a career transition and wish to work with horses ?
– do you wish to feel satisfied and happy when looking at yourself in the mirror?
– do you always take care of others and are unable to say “no” ?
– do you feel as if you got mixed up and losing control over your own life ?

This coaching assisted with horses approach will fine-tune your relational skills and leadership thanks to our trainings for company directors, managers, coaches and one on one sessions for individuals.

Do you need some more answers finding the right program, the one that best matches with your needs ?

Please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to talk to you over the phone, as our first 30 minutes telephone meeting is free of charge.

Do you feel (really) convinced? … we will then go on with an appointment and meet the horses.

It is an enriching experience not only we learn about our leadership style but also about ourselves, our personality, in a very honest and true way.

“Following my first training to become an equine practitioner, I wanted to continue with the Expert training. The first training was a source of great personal changes that were confirmed during the Expert training. If I already wanted to develop myself professionally, I did not expect that it would bloom also at a personal level »

Equine coach - Accordacorps

I am Florentine van Thiel, ELFC * certified coach and EASEL **, business and life coach  certified in Paris and a member of the International Coaching Federation (IFC).

Passionate about horses since my childhood, I mounted for the first time on horseback at 18 years. The gentle power of Argentina has remained engraved in my cells as a beneficent welcome which has never left me.

Although I worked in a number of companies in the non-profit sector, most of my career took place at the European Commission. It was in the velvety cosmopolitan offices that I understood that accurate knowledge of our non verbal communication is an asset to conquer the world and that the higher the level one reach, the more important communication skills are.
