My love of animals began at a very young age when we had the usual family pets, dog, cat, hamsters gold fish, but at the tender age of 5 I was totally in love with horses. I began to ride at that age and since then horses have never been out of my life. Until I owned my first pony at the age of 9 we only had dogs and even though we had our own I regularly brought home other people’s dogs that I swore blind had been abandoned!

As an only child, animals played a big part of my life; not just the family pet but they were my friends too I seem to have had an ability to communicate with them so easily too, especially horses. Connecting with animals is so easy and natural; with all this love to give all animals just draw towards you, as it is simply love that they too wish to give. Right through my education I was adamant that I would be working with horses much to my parents despair; and I did follow my dream and do just that.

However, at the age of 18 having suffered a major trauma I was struck down with MS. All my dreams at that time were shattered, to think I could never ride again was beyond belief, the wind had been taken right out of my sails, and I was devastated. Initially unable to walk and blind in one eye I mustered all the strength and will power I had to get back on my feet, and I firmly believe that without the dream of being able to be around horses again I could not have made a recovery from that first MS attack. With the love of my parents and their desire to help me reach my goals I did get back on my feet and lead a normal life as my condition was diagnosed as relapse & remitting MS.

I continued to ride albeit in pain, but was unable to continue my career with horses, for the time being, and somehow I ended up going down the path of Holistic healing for myself. From aromatherapy to crystal healing, hypnotherapy I experienced so many complimentary therapies looking for help with healing. My dream was still out there and I was determined to get it. From this healing I grew a desire to help others with this work so I embarked on another career in complimentary therapy which I qualified in so many areas for humans.


In and amongst I married had a child and owned horses and other small animals. Feeling much stronger and equipped with all these skills it was time to look for my way back into the animal kingdom. I embarked on body work for horses, equine and small animal Zoopharmacognosy and natural horsemanship, and now back working with horses I was now where I wanted to be, or was I? I noticed where ever I was working on a yard other animals would approach me showing so much affection even feral cats. I did look into furthering my education in other animals but felt that the horses were my biggest teachers and I should be grateful I managed to reach my dream. Then a friend of mine suggested I should really think again, then another friend and another so by now I’m thinking this isn’t just a coincidence maybe I should. So I scrolled the net and found just what I was looking for an accredited clinic in Animal Healing. So now here I am fully qualified to work with animals doing what I love best, Animal Healing.

I am passionate about the welfare of Horses and all other animals, animals are my life and I only ever want the best for them, my aim is to help all animals/pets and their guardians that cross my path in any way I can. I have been privileged to work with so many wonderful animals from the family pet, family horse, competition horses and rescued animals. Other clients I have been asked to help are some of the horses and ponies rescued by HAPPA, which is an equine and donkey charity based in Lancashire. All the staff at HAPPA provide an excellent service to ensure that all their residents have the best care and are placed in loving homes. I have a lot of compassion for these rescued horses and ponies as quite often they have experienced loss, neglect and or cruelty, what they need is a great deal of love, trust and understanding, and with the service I am able to provide means that I too can help make a difference during their stay and rehabilitation.

I am a qualified and fully insured Graduate of the Animal Magic School of Animal Therapy, a Practitioner of Holistic Body Work, Equine & small animal Zoopharmacognosy and Reiki Master.

I work both freelance and from my cottage which is in a beautiful village in North Yorkshire surrounded by mother nature’s best, rolling hills an abundance of trees, woodland and of course I am blessed to have in my view horses, cows, sheep, donkeys and even regular visits from the neighbourhood deer.
