In the beginning........... ............I have always loved horses and learnt to ride early on, which progressed to hanging out at stables and then to working with horses as soon as I was old enough to. Whilst schooling a horse one day I had an accident. This lead to my first experience of 'instructions coming through' as intuition. At this time I was introduced to the healer Bill Harrison who was able to 'recall' the whole accident without being told any of the details. This was the first time I experienced something like this and I went on to learn more about hands on energy healing and practiced this with the horses in my care.
Over the next few years I competed in dressage at National and International level and also went on to study and graduate from Aberystwyth University with a degree in Animal Science. I continued working and living on an equestrian stud farm working with top level competition horses, being involved with the foalings, training and caring for all the horses.
Some years later I trained and practiced as a Master Practitioner of NLP and Hypnotherapy with Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler. Then I discovered Equine Facilitated Learning- It was at an Equine Facilitated Learning workshop with Leigh Shambo that I experienced animal communication for the first time.
My first experience of a communication............. During Leigh's workshop we were guided in how to ground ourselves and then check in with each horse using a body scanning method. After checking in with each horse we went back to the group circle and shared our experience. I reported back with a lot of information about each horse. The first horse had shown me a video in my minds eye of the last hack she had been on and I experienced pain in my left wrist which corresponded to where she hurt in her joints. Another horse communicated his name by showing me the colour red, he was called Red. He then showed me a single pony nut in a framed picture, pony nuts were his favourite feed. Another horse had shown me images of the specific jumps in his field, and they were all blue and white poles- it seemed the colour was very important and it turned out they only had blue and white poles. These horses owners were sat in the circle and verified all this information was totally correct. I was astonished by what had just happened and so were they. I had never met these horses or people and had just received very specific information from four different horses through feelings in my body, words in my head, images in my minds eye and a sensory video experience. It was all quite unexpected as this wasn't specifically an animal communication work shop.
What now?!............ After this experience I practiced with friends horses and would go to their yards and stand outside each stable and see what I could get. Again and again the horses would convey specific information and the owners would confirm it resonated with them. At this time it was a small amount of information from each animal, and still fairly experimental. A lady called Sally, who has known me for a long time had heard through the grapevine about these new found skills and asked if I could come and 'talk' with her horse Tod. After a lot of persuading I went to see Tod and he proceeded to communicate via images, words and videos. He showed me things there was no way I could have known, communicating via a video in my mind about an incident he had had as a foal in the field and the fact he had just had an injection. The information I received from him was meaningful to his person and lead me to following this path further.

I continued to practice animal communication in person and read all the books I could find on the subject. Then in 2018 I started to practice communicating and sending healing from a distance by tuning in to animals from photographs. I found this to be really effective and I was receiving the same information, if not more, by working with the animals from a distance.
I now regularly use these skills to help people and their animals understand each other and to help deepen the relationship between animals, nature and people around the world.
