We can all suffer from stress and anxiety, however, at the moment it is even more prevalent. 

A dog trainer friend, and one of my Reiki students, suggested that a video may be helpful to people who are struggling at the moment, so I have made a FREE 42 minute webinar for you all to access when needed.

It begins by discussing the current situation that we are in, briefly discussing The Chimp Paradox book, and then introducing Touch for Health Kinesiology, before giving you the Touch for Health Colour Balance, using ESR, self help technique at the half way point (around 19 minutes in).

I hope that you find this webinar interesting and beneficial, and remember that you can use this at any time, not just during Covid-19!


With having to stay at home at the moment, especially if you are in the shielding group, it can be hard to find things to keep your dogs occupied.

Here is a simple little way to keep your dog amused for quite a while, as well as tire them out from all of that sniffing and foraging. 

If you are looking for something to keep the kids amused then making one of these may kill two birds with one stone.  Some people even make pretty patterns in them!  You may need to cut up the fabric for the children though! 


With firework season fast approaching, in fact I think that we have had a few already, I suddenly realised that it was time to start my Staffie cross on Dorwest Herbs Skullcap and Valerian.  Luckily my other dog isn't bothered by them, unless they are really close.

Here I have made a 30 minute webinar to give you ideas of how to prepare your dog and your home, in advance, and measures to take during the main firework season.

I hope that you and your dog(s) manage to have a stress free firework season as possible. 

Christmas is upon is once again, at the end of what has been a very strange and difficult year for many.

For most, this Christmas will be very different to previous years, and the quietness of Christmas may actually be of benefit to the dogs in the homes.  However, as a behaviourist, I know that Christmas can be a stressful time for dogs, so I have made a short video of considerations and dangers to avoid.

I hope that your Christmas 2020 is as happy and peaceful as possible.


The Woodland Trust approached me back in August to ask if I would be interested in working with them to set up a dog training scheme in Uffmoor Woods, as part of a new "Woods and Wellness" initiative.

Naturally, living practically next door to the woods and loving being amongst the trees, I said yes!

I am so excited about the potential of these session and the changes that they could make to local dog owners and the users of the woods.

To be honest, I am excited by all that the plans that the Woodland Trust have in the pipeline.......... it is all VERY exciting!

The first course will run during Autumn 2020 (October to December), once a fortnight, on a Tuesday.  Weekend sessions may be available during 2021 if enough interest.
