The training and experience I bring to you and your dog (or other animal friend), I;
- graduated as a BodyTalk Practitioner in August of 2015, including extra training for animals (both from the International BodyTalk Association, Florida, USA),
- was awarded a Certificate in Raw Dog Food Nutrition in January 2018 (Dogs Naturally, Canada) – have raw fed my dogs for many years now,
- and completed two magical courses created by Claire Oats of Animal Energy Therapies, Perth, Australia; namely Flower Essences for Animal’s Emotions (2019) and Animal Kinesiology (2020).
All the above is provided from a distance, such is the nature of energy therapies without the requirement to dispense any supplemental remedies (i.e. flower essences).
If you have any questions you are more than welcome to contact me when I will reply to you the same day or within 24 hours.
Jeddah, our black boy above, is a very energetic boy who I’m certain is crossed with many other species – magpie, squirrel, kangaroo and ratbag :), plus having the qualities of an escape artist when on the scent of a rabbit. He came into our life out of the blue as an 11 week old gorgeous cuddly bundle who benefited hugely from Baxter’s doggy beingness and solid calm demeanor for the following two years (Jeddah was removed from his mother at 4 weeks) when it was time for Baxter to return to his spirit world at the age of 14 years approximately.
We adopted Baxter, also out of the blue, when he was apparently 6.5 years of age. Initially to foster, within days I fell in love with him as a true treasure and a gentle’man’ who taught me a huge lesson that I can’t judge a book by its cover. Appearing to me like one of those scary “dangerous” dogs, he was absolutely far from it. Thank you Baxter from the bottom of my heart for being in my life – an absolute honour and true privilege. I love you deeply, now and forever. Keeping his photo above for a while to honour him, as he only just transitioned in July 2021.
Louie and Minke – who gave me my sense of purpose to help other dogs
Two much-loved family members who are no longer with us (2013 and earlier), struggled and suffered with their health for far too long. This was before I became a BodyTalk Practitioner for people and animals, and graduated with a certificate in raw feeding for dogs.
Louie, German Shepherd, had incessant scratching, skin problems, inflammation and later, lumps …
His little mate (in size only!) Minke, Jack Russell, who passed away before him also had skin problems.
Long story short, they received as much natural health care and raw diet as I could give them including enlisting our local holistic vet but for whatever reason, their issues weren’t resolving easily. I’m now learning as much as I can about holistic and natural solutions, including nutrition.
In my humble opinion, drugs and surgery do have their place for some acute or serious conditions, although my first choice even then is most always the preventative, non-chemical, non- surgical route as best as I can provide. Chronic, long term health conditions are better treated at the level of origin, not necessarily quick, but a longer term better investment not only in money but in time and quality of life.
I felt stressed, frustrated and in tears a lot of the time, seeing them so unwell … I also felt very powerless.
I have no doubt that other areas in my life (where I felt stress) negatively impacted on them both. Plus I now know their raw diet could have been better balanced nutritionally.
Toward the end of Louie’s life when I was starting to learn BodyTalk, and bringing in extra help by ‘throwing’ whatever I could at him so to speak, his health started to improve and his coat looked great, but by then (sadly) it wasn’t going to save his life.
One of my most deeply treasured experiences …
…was at home 11.55pm Saturday night 15 June 2013, lying with Louie at his most sacred time, when he let go his last breath. I swear I felt the breezes of angels wings (I don’t normally talk like that!) I actually looked around to see if any doors were open (and there wasn’t)!
I feel very drawn to supporting others at this very tender time to provide relief and comfort. Also in the weeks and months prior to, for pain relief and peace. Please ask me (and you may like to refer to my testimonials).
Maybe it’s not hard to understand that I am particularly passionate about helping dogs. They are the most loyal and loving friend you could ask for.
