I am currently able to offer Reiki sessions for horses and their guardians, as well as Touch for Health Kinesiology for guardians and/or riders.


I have always had a love of horses, well, for as long as I remember.  I began helping with the Shire horses and ponies at Avoncroft Museum at the age of 10 years old, and was even accepted onto a National Diploma in Equine Studies at Hindlip College, before I got talked out of it and persuaded to peruse a human health care course instead.  I have many happy memories of horse riding with my cousins, who had their own horses, and going on horse riding holidays with friends.

In the early noughties, my brother managed a farm which had about 14 Shire horses, which were mainly unhandled, and I took up the challenge of training the biggest of the stallions to have a headcollar on and to be happy being handled.  I managed it, he would even run across the huge field when I would call his name, and then I moved on to one of the mares.  This got my passion for horses fuelled again, and later, when I went to work at an outreach college, riding and holiday centre in Lincolnshire (teaching Animal Care studies), I really got back into things.

I went on to study a Work Based Diploma in Horse Care, as well as numerous Equine holistic therapy courses which I will list lower down.  I am now studying a Level 5 Equine Behaviour course and have an interest in connection training.
