Looking back, animals have been an integral part of my life; from the Guinea pig, budgerigar, Syrian hamsters and cats we had in our childhood; to the cockatiel, gerbil, dwarf hamsters and cats in my younger, and recent years. They each taught me so much and feel blessed to have had a connection with each and every one of them. I am currently guardian to a rescue dog (Tigger) and recently fostered a hedgehog over the winter.
My first real connection with horses was from around the age of nine when I learnt to ride. I enjoyed jumping and learning about horse care and preparation for competition. My relationship with horses continued after we moved counties and was able to continue riding while helping out at a local stables. It has been wonderful to reconnect with these beautiful souls through working with them.
As teenagers my sister and I helped out on a local farm where we would regularly encounter its animal residents, as well looking after rabbits when their owners went on holiday and walking an elderly lady's dog. who lived in the village.
Prior to adopting our lovely dog I embarked upon my spiritual path, with a particular interest in the healing aspect. The positive ethos and meditation has allowed me to find calm, inner peace and a sense of balance . I have always had a positive outlook and bring both calmness and positivity to the sessions.
Complementary therapy, which included homeopathic and herbal remedies, was an integral part of my upbringing ,as well as being in a household that grew a range of plants and foods.
However, I do enjoy exploring the scientific aspect and researching things in depth, as well as liaising with experts. This approach gave me a better understanding of Tigger's issues (lead aggression, separation anxiety, nervousness and anxiousness) and along with holistic sessions, empathy, kindness and patience, have transformed him into a happy, more confident and relaxed dog.
Being within the healthcare sector and laboratory setting for over 25 years allows me to draw upon knowledge of health issues gained over this time.
Helping animals and wildlife has always been a passion, and as a youngster was a Young Ornithologist with the RSPB , all of which were my motivation to embark on my training.
We ensure all sessions move at your animal's own pace; and with empathy, kindness and respect for your animal.
