I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by animals most of my life.  As a child, I don’t remember hearing them speak to me in words, but I do remember having a ‘sense of knowing and understanding’ about, and with, them.  I continue still to be surprised and touched at the deep sense of connection it is possible to experience with them, their wisdom, and how much they have to teach us.

I am a both a Spiritual Healer and Reiki Master (Shinpiden Reiki). I was awarded my Practitioners Diploma in Reiki for Horses from Jan Barley. This year I celebrate 16 years working as an Animal Healer.

I began communicating with animals soon after I began working as an Animal Healer, it seemed like a very natural progression to make. My main Animal Communication teacher has been Pea Horsely (author of 'Heart to Heart'), I was also taught by Amelia Kinkade (author of 'The Language of Miracles'). Spiritual Development classes with Spiritual Medium Maxine Mustoe helped me to develop my telepathic abilities further.

In 2015 I was introduced to the Trust Technique, I subsequently trained as a Trust Technique Practitioner with James French and achieved The Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Mindfulness for People with their Animals: Trust Technique Practitioner. The Trust Technique combines both Animal Healing and Animal Communication, I feel it has added an extra dimension to my work, and greatly enhanced the help and support I offer to clients.

Before I started working as an Animal Healer and Animal Communicator I worked as a professional Homeopath (working mainly with people).  I have over 20 years experience working holistically and in the field of energy medicine.

My own spiritual path has lead me towards finding my true sense of self, opening my heart and developing and trusting my intuition. It's an ongoing journey but it has enabled me to become as clearer channel for the healing energy as I possibly can be. I bring all the things I have learnt to the work I am doing now. I am interested in shamanism and working with power animals. I believe in empowering animals and their people to be their True selves. Since learning the Trust Technique I have become deeply interested in the practice of Mindfulness; the powerful feeling that being in the Present Moment creates, and how finding peace of mind can bring about true change for ourselves and our animals.
