focusing on creating psychological, physical, and physiological balance

HOLISTIC WELLBEING for People, Dogs and Horses

Face to Face Sessions


Reiki is a fantastic, calming, therapy which is often used within the NHS and many animal rescues.  Once seen as "new age" or "hippy", the benefits of Reiki have been scientifically studied, within humans, and can be explained by the use of physics. 

Reiki can be carried out with hands on or off a client, or even at a distance.  During a session the client can be lay down or sat and the sessions are fully clothed.

Occasionally, crystals and other "healing tools" such as sound therapy may be used within a session.

With distance energy work sessions, or "Advanced Energy Balances" as I call them, I use a wider range of techniques, including those from the Chinese 5 elements, whilst sending energy therapy to the client.

Face to Face sessions currently take place in your home and can be carried out seated, lay on a reclining chair or deckchair, or I can bring my Reiki (massage) table if there is room.


Touch for Health Kinesiology is a client led, hands on, therapy session which combines Eastern and Western techniques.  This can include traditional Chinese medicine, acupressure, massage, nutrition, and chiropractic techniques.  The session can be carried out lay down or standing, and is fully clothed. 

Using muscle monitoring, we use the body's innate ability to identify imbalances within the body and discover the route of the problem, not just addressing the symptoms alone.

I have previously found Touch for Health to be of great benefit when working with dog guardians who are struggling with their own anxieties relating to their dogs behaviour problems, and the behaviour modification process.  It can even be used with clients who are having problems with leadwalking!

Face to Face sessions currently take place in your home and can be carried out stood up or I can bring my folding massage table for you to have the session lay down.  For some problems, the sessions can be conducted sat down.

Face to Face sessions - Covid

I am hoping to resume face to face holistic therapy sessions from 21stJune 2021.  At the moment, the plan is that sessions will be conducted indoors and wearing a mask and PPE, with the option of doing the initial talking part of the session outdoors and without a mask if the weather allows.  This will all be confirmed closer to the time.

Introductory offer for past and present dog clients.

I am offering a limited number of blocks of 3 sessions for Reiki and for Touch for Health Kinesiology, to my dog training and behaviour clients, at a very special introductory issue rate during June 2021.  If you would like to book in for your 3 sessions, please get in touch asap to avoid missing out on this fantastic offer.


I have trained, and am insured for, several other holistic therapies, however, I do not offer them as a stand alone service.  I prefer to assess the animal as an individual to see what the best option is for them, at the time, within a Holistic Behaviour Consultation.  Veterinary permission is required for me to use holistic therapies with your animals.

Some of the courses that I have attended/completed are: Canine nutrition, Raw Feeding Expert Course, Acu-point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Merisha Massage (Dogs and Horses), Herbal Choices/ Self Selection (Dogs and Horses), Animal Communication, Healing Tools (Crystals, Sound Therapy, Colour Therapy etc), Muscles, Movement, and Stretching workshop, Canine Reflexology, TTouch 2 day courses, and The 5 Elements & Aromatherapy course.

Service Options During COVID-19

All of the following services will be available for £50 per session, in person again, from 21st June 2021.

The Reiki sessions can also be carried out at a distance, at an agreed time and I ask for a photo to be provided.  30 minute Reiki / Advanced Energy Work sessions are £30 per session.

There is a 10% discount when booking 3 or more sessions at once.

Distance / Online Sessions

For People and Animals

Standard Distance Reiki BalANCE

 I often find that distance Reiki sessions can be much more powerful than in person.  It is almost as though it is intensified through time and space.

We arrange a time when you can be at home, and relaxed, and then I sit and focus on sending you or your animal Reiki.

I work via photo connection, so a photograph of the recipient will be required.

5 eLEMENT rEIKI Distance Balance

For a long time, I had been doing something a little more than standard Reiki when I did distance energy sessions, but I wasn't quite sure what to call it.

Over time, and with my TfH training, I realised that I was using much of the 5 Element approach, so decided that is what I should call it.

During these sessions, I used a range of techniques from my other therapy training experience and carry out a session as I would in person, but energetically via a "surrogate."

For People


I was recently asked by one of my clients if I could provide Spiritual/Energy work discussions via Zoom, so am currently offering this as an option whilst unable to run Reiki and Advanced Energy Work training courses.

I have also set up a Reiki and Advanced Energy Work Facebook group for clients/students where I plan on sharing videos and possibly Facebook Lives on spiritual matters.


We may not be able to do a full body balance at the moment, however there are lots of self help techniques that I can provide, plus the process of "goal setting" where we look to discover the route of emotions attached to a situation.

Also, why not check out the FREE video that I made at the start of Covid, which can be found under the FREE ADVICE tab in the navigation. 


I am currently looking at offering my Reiki training courses in a blended learning format.  These will consist of the "theory" and meditation side of the course carried out online, via Zoom, and the attunements carried out in person on a 1-2-1 basis, or with other participants within the same household/bubble.

Options available will be:

  • Reiki for People
  • Reiki for People and Dogs
  • Reiki for People and Horses 
  • Reiki for People and Animals (Dogs, Cats, Horses, Rabbits)
  • Rainbow Reiki for Children (a course especially designed for children to participate in)

The courses will all be designed inline with the National Operating Standards, and the requirements for joining The Reiki Association and CNHC should you wish to apply for assessment as a Verified Reiki Practitioner,with The Reiki Association. 

Please do get in touch to express your interest and find out further information.



After the subject of Reiki popping up in various areas of life over MANY years, I was lucky enough to meet Helen through our work with dogs.

We had a long conversation about LOTS of topics, and I felt a real connection with her. She has an amazing skill set as a dog trainer and holistic therapist. These areas of work are maybe not obviously connected, but I am convinced that we can enhance our scientific approach to animal training by a using an holistic approach.

I was keen to learn more, and when Helen invited me to attend her Reiki course, I couldn't resist.

The course was fascinating, and gave me a really good insight into the whole subject of Reiki ranging from the history, through some science to self practise and beginning to work with animals. The weekend was strangely relaxing for a course!

We were sent away with homework to develop what we learned during the weekend, and I am keen to attend the next course that Helen offers.

I would recommend it to anyone interested either in Reiki itself, or in self development, or in a new addition to your tool kit for working with animals.



Helen has an exceptional talent to help animals and their guardians to heal, regain confidence and maintain optimal health.

She has a unique and wonderful understanding of animals and their needs. If the animal appears to have a behavioural issue, Helen is able to pinpoint and heal the cause - paving the way for a more loving and understanding partnership between the animal and their guardian.

Thank you Helen! I can't recommend you enough for all that you do!
