How can it help you?
- Behavioural problems: Once you know why they are occurring, you can make sensible and helpful changes.
- Health issues: I can relay any symptoms or information from your animal that may be useful to you and/or your vet.
- Forthcoming changes: there are a number of situations that you may want to tell your animal about. For example, you might be moving house soon, your teenage child might be going away to university, you may have a new partner or animal coming into the household, or perhaps your daily routine might be changing. All these things could have quite an impact on your animal and it would help both of you if you can tell your animal what is going to happen.
- General check-up: You may not have anything specific that is worrying you but you might just want to check that your animal is happy and doing OK. You may wish to ask "Do you enjoy the food I am giving you?" Is there anything I can do to improve your life with me?"
- Death and dying: This is such a difficult area, especially when dealing with the end of your pet's life. Sometimes you may need to make a decision about your animal's future but you don't know if it's the best thing to do or whether you can do anything to help them. You may want to ask "Is it your time to go?" "How can I best help you at this stage of your life?" Listening to what your animal needs will help create a mutual and loving understanding at a time when emotions are heightened.
- Bereavement: Perhaps you have lost an animal (bereavement) and you and/or your other companion animals are struggling to come to terms with the grief of losing such a loved member of the family. Communicating with an animal who has passed out of our lives can often bring comfort and peace to a grieving family.
- Rescue animals: Very often we wonder what kind of life our rescued animals may have had before coming into our lives. I can help you understand what they may have been through, their experiences - whether good or bad, their fears and worries. By knowing these things you then have more of an idea of how to ensure their life with you is a happy one.
