About

The most touching, beautiful stories about animals are the ones where mutual rescue happens.

This is also my story.

 

I have been a therapist and a healer for the last 18 years. It wasn’t until Charlie came into my life and changed it forever that I realised my passion for working on deepening the relationship between animals and their humans.

He taught me loyalty, love and commitment to a degree I never thought was possible.

Charlie is the inspiration behind this website and a big inspiration in my private and professional life. I gave Charlie a home and he gave his heart & soul. It was love at first sight

In my mid 20’s I became interested in psychology and natural healing. I started my journey learning psychotherapy, aromatherapy, therapeutic bodywork and energy healing.

I have always loved animals and felt drawn to the natural world. As a child I collected ladybirds and snails, had a succession of hamsters, guinea pigs and budgies, played with neighbours’ dogs and family members’ cats.  As teenagers, a friend of mine and I rescued a few stray dogs and found them loving homes. 

Curiosity took me to places like Bali, Indonesia to learn how to help deliver babies, and I studied to be a Doula (birthing assistant) with The Doula Consultancy Services. I also studied kinesiology, nutrition, energy psychology, EFT, BodyTalk, EmoTrance, hypnotherapy, Hakomi Therapy and read extensively about the Enneagram. 

For 10 years from 2003 – 2012 I worked at Women & Health as an aromatherapist and a biodynamic counsellor.

We worked with women who experienced anxiety, depression, serious mental health problems and with victims of sexual violence. It was a challenging and demanding but extremely rewarding work. I worked on projects with The Rape Crisis and on projects for carers of children with disabilities and carers of elderly with dementia. I also worked with children with disabilities and learning difficulties and their parents and guardians at a place called Palace for All. 

Recently, I have completed Diploma in Energy Healing for Animals and I am currently studying on a Diploma in Canine Communication with the prestigious Compass Education UK.

I am also studying The Trust Technique with James French – world renowned animal healer, a mindful approach to working with animals. Trust Technique is the combination of advanced animal communication and animal healing combined into a simple to use application. It is helping animals and people find a deep sense of trust and confidence while opening new possibilities of co-operation. It is truly beautiful and gentle work but powerful enough to change deep-seated behavioural problems and facilitate nourishing connection between you and your animal.
