Looking back, animals have been an integral part in 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 years. I am currently guardian to a rescue dog (Tigger) and up until his recent passing, a rescue cat (Guy). I had, and have, a deep love and respect for each and every one of them.
From around the age of nine I regularly rode horses and had riding and jumping lessons, along with a weekend learning about horse care and preparation for competition. My relationship with horses continued after moving counties and I helped out at a local stables; and in return rode their horses.
My sister and I also 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.
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.
Complementary therapy was an integral part of my upbringing, which included homeopathic and herbal treatment options.
I also enjoy exploring the scientific aspect and researching things in depth, as well as liaising with professionals. This then gives me a better understanding of issues. This approach helped with the array of issues displayed by Tigger (lead aggression, separation anxiety, nervousness and anxiousness) and has helped ease them.
Being within the healthcare sector, and laboratory setting, for over 25 years has increased my knowledge and understanding of a variety of health issues.
Helping animals has always been a passion and was my motivation to embark on my training.
I have an enhanced CRB check and am fully insured for all services offered.
