Meet Belle Shook

I am an intuitive therapist, board-certified coach, and licensed counselor focusing on personal growth, leadership development, and trauma-informed care.

As a pioneer in the field of Equine Therapy, my three horses and I assist people in developing their potential through healing and fine-tuning their neurobiology.

I will help you create a transformation from the inside out at Equine Guidance®. My horses and I have been working together since 2004 and are ready to be part of your journey.


Meet the founder of Equine Guidance®  Belle Shook 

In each experience of Equine Guidance® clients are respected with trauma-informed practices as they interact with Belle and the horses. Riding the horses is not included in the experience; clients meet them—and themselves—with boots and hooves on the ground. Photos of the session are provided when requested. Belle offers a 30-minute follow-up conversation with the client within 30 days after the session.

Beginning with a lifelong affiliation with horses, Belle earned a master’s degree in counseling and spent over 5,200 hours obtaining certifications specific to equine and somatic experience healing modalities. In 2004 she established Equine Guidance® with three special horses in Arizona’s Sedona Verde Valley. To date, Belle and the horses have held over 1,800 sessions with clients. 

The Equine Guidance® Experience Established in 2004

“Equine Guidance gave me the affirmation that I could know myself for who I truly am.”

 – Polly, Australia

“This was the best, most genuine experience we did in Sedona!” 


“Thank you for insights and experiences that will stay with me forever!”

– Jason, New York

When we work together, the experience can bring you more creativity, a greater ability to connect with others, a deeper understanding of who you are and what you are capable of. You’ll have more confidence, feel less anxious, deepen your intuition and resilience, allowing you to release outdated blueprints and imprints.
