Animals have always played a pivotal role in my life.
From my first dog, who nurtured and mothered me through a challenging childhood, to the protectors, teachers and companions who helped me navigate the angst of my teenage years and the joys and sorrows of adulthood, animals have shaped my path and guided me with their wisdom. It is my privilege to share the learning these experiences have brought and to work with animals to help others gain greater self-awareness and to promote healing.
I see my role as a facilitator as one of guiding and supporting you through your journey and working with you to achieve your goals.
I qualified as an Equine Guided Learning (EGL) Practitioner through LEAP after completing a number of workshops to explore different approaches to EGL – including EponaQuest and EAGALA – and I have also had first-hand experience of the power of equine-based psychotherapy as a client.
I have a Certificate in Counselling and have completed introductory courses in Ecopsychology and Good Practice in Autism Education. I also have an Enhanced DBS certificate and am insured.
My interest in alternative approaches to healing and Ecopsychology has led me to qualify as a Reiki practitioner. I am also an Animal Communicator and I combine this experience to inform my work in helping humans and animals to heal.
I am interested in pursuing research and further studies into human-animal interactions. I am keen to collaborate with like-minded professionals who share my passion for the natural world and its importance to our wellbeing.
