Frequently Asked Questions

1. Don't I have to be (physically) in the same room as you?

No. You can actually get better results by not being in the same room. Your pet is more settled and easier to work with when they are in their own safe place and do not have the distractions of new places or visitors.

I connect with your pet telepathically or intuitively and through your connection with them. Just as I can talk with you on the phone or internet, distance and physical location does not matter.

 

2. What are the basic principles of the way you work?

Although the therapies studied and used may seem quite different, they generally all work of the same basic principles and fundamentals keys.

  • That the body has innate healing energy and is at all times doing it best to take care of itself 
  • Sometimes it needs to be helped into a better position to achieve balance 
  • Consciousness or awareness is a key component to creating change and healing for you
  • The body needs to be treated as a whole, not as a list of symptoms that fit a diagnoses 
  • Optimal results occur when work on multiple levels including - Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual... 
  • Non-invasive and gentle techniques are often the most powerful
  • Reduced stress promotes health and wellbeing 
  • Healing occurs when we access our inner knowing, truth and empowerment
  • All life is interconnected
  • Improve one area and it will improve others - relationships, work, school... 
  • That it best to deal with the cause, not just than symptoms
  • That we need to look beyond named diseases and classifications
  • Our beliefs can affect us physically

I believe in a 'best of both worlds' approach using good veterinary or medical care with natural and alternative techniques . Each complementing the other to assist with optimal health and healing and ensuring that your healing needs are met.

 

3. How do you communicate with my pet?

Intuitively, telepathic, psychically or energetically - various techniques that ultimately produce a similar result.

It is not too dissimilar to creating a connection to you via mobile phone or internet (Skype etc).  

Rest assured you do not need to understand how it works in order for it to work. I do not fully understand how it works myself, I just know that it does.

 

4. Why do you work via phone or Skype?

I used to do home visits or have people and their pets come to my clinic but the animals were so distracted, stressed or on guard due to new people in their territory, that I could not get clear messages. Clients were so stressed about what their pets were doing that it really did not work for anyone. 

By having everyone in a comfortable, safe and familiar environment, it makes everyone's lives alot easier, less stressed and it enables me to work for you alot more effectively.

Added bonus: No travel means reduced carbon footprint and more time for you, which is a win for you and the environment.

 

5. Is my pet with me for a reason

Some of the stories I have heard about the ways in which pets have come to people is nothing short of amazing. Many talk of being chosen by their pet or that when they saw them they just had to have them. Many also talk of how their pet has saved them, healed them or challenging them. Pets are helping us in so many different ways.

Some say pets come to us to fulfil a soul contract, where we have agreed on some level to assist each other in this life. Similarly I say pets are angels who've traded their wings for fur (unless they are a bird, reptile, fish or insect). 

Either way or what ever you do or do not believe in, there is no denying that these increadible animals help us in so many different ways, and they could be of much greater service to us if we learnt to listen to their messages.

 

What is _____?

1. Kinesiology

Essentially Kinesiology is the use of muscle testing to indicate or identify imbalances in your body. A muscle can be either setup to indicate a 'yes/no' response or tested to indicate imbalances in the body and what will make a weakened muscle response stronger.

Muscle testing aids in identifying and pin pointing what is important to you via muscle feedback, which is indicated by a weakened or strong muscle response. It can be used to test priority physical, emotional, chemical, mental or energetic systems that require attention and to establish the body's healing needs from any number or resources and reference material. The main advantage of testing the body is that it bypasses the mind and communicates directly with body memory.

There are many different types (or modalities) under the umbrella of Kinesiology and the list is about as long as my arm. Some are more specific to an area such as brain function, physical structure or emotions. Others are more general or holistic. Possibly more than other therapy, your experience of Kinesiology can vary greatly from one practitioner to the next, due to the broad and wide variety of teachings and forms classified as Kinesiology, it is not a case of tried one, tried them all. 

I completed a 3.5 year (part time) Diploma course of International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice (ICPKP). I chose ICPKP Kinesiology as I needed the science and medical background to keep my inner sceptic satisfied. 

ICPKP was developed and written by Dr Bruce Dewe a medical doctor from New Zealand and his wife, Joan Dewe, a nurse.  If you would like further information refer to their website. http://www.icpkp.com/

As I am unable to test your muscle directly, I test on your behalf. Testing is mainly used to determine priority, verify and confirm intuition received, fill out further details, check your progress and determine the next best action which is what a Kinesiologist may do in a clinic environment. 

Testing is also used to test priority physical, emotional, chemical, mental or energetic systems that require attention and also to establish the body's healing needs from any number or resources and reference material.

 

2. ThetaHealing®

ThetaHealing® Is so called due to the brainwave state that the practitioner goes into in order to tap into their natural intuition and universal knowledge. The technique's primarily focus is on thought and intentional creation of health. 

Theta is best known for working on belief and feeling work at the four levels of core, gene, history and soul. It was founded by Vianna Stibl from Idaho, USA an intuitive healer and naturopath. 

I trained with several teachers who have further developed this technique, as have I. What I love the most about ThetaHealing is the DNA work and the ease with which change can be created. It is like getting a download and upgrade to your operating system.

Computer programming is probably the easiest way to describe it. During a session you may get downloads, upgrades, programming bug (belief) fixes and codes turned on or off.

3. Neuroplasticity

Neuroplasticity is a relatively new science of brain function, which proves we are not hard wired. That the brain can reprogram itself, or that parts of the brain traditionally known to perform specific functions can be recruited to perform another.

It was first noticed in people who had extensive brain damage from an accident, where for example the right side of the brain which usually gives signals to the left side of the body, could be taught / reprogrammed to send signals to both sides.

At it's simplest application - just because something has always been a particular way, does not mean that it has to always be that we. 

We do not have to be victims of our own thoughts and past. We can simply change our story to change our future and physiology.

We can change our life simply by changing our thoughts, which is one of the many things our pets are helping us with. They try to cheer us up when we are feeling sad, get us moving when we are stuck, comort us when we are down. When they help us feel better, we actually get better!

 

4. Bachelor of Science

Bachelor of Science - Majors in Zoology & Microbiology

I shared many of my science classes with Doctors, Pharmacists, Geologists, Botanists, Zoologists, Agricultural and Industrial Scientists which has provided varied exposure to different disciplines and learning.

As fascinating as science is it is also a very transient discipline where something you learnt yesterday may not be so today. By studying science I have also developed a scepatacism and synacism about science and how what we should believe. 

I think that in many ways we may trust science a little too much and that we place a bit too much faith in something that is really run by industry and big companies, not the truth or what science can reveal.

Do not blindly trust scientific results, as there are some things to consider.

  • Look at who is funding the research and give the results as much attention as they deserve (usually not much) 
  • The essence of science is to prove a theory - if it is not proved it's  disreagarded 
  • Science requires something to be quantifiable or measurable and so say if it cannot be measured it does not exist
  • Many things that "did not exist" have suddenly come into existence when equipment sensitive enought to measure it have been developed
  • If it is too good to be true, it is probably not true
  • By the time the general public get published results, much of it may have been disproved by other scientific experiments
  • The general public (via advertisements) only get the information that they want you to have
  • All pharmaceuticals, pills and medications come from a plant or other natural source. Only those that can be synthetically made in a laboratory and patented (so they can make money) make it to the shelves even though there may be other more effective natural alternatives with less side effects
  • Always check the asterix or qualifiers in statistics, as the results may not be what they seen. For example a cancer survior is someone who has survived 5 years, not an average lifetime. How can a 16 year old really be termed as a survior if they only live to see 23?

It is really the scientists that are to blame? Pharmacuetical companies, Advertisers, Marketers and Cororations only provide us with the results that helps them prove or sell something ... and if they are required by law to publish it, it will be in the small print.

 

5. Nutrition

Nutrition is an essential component and building block for good health. I like to eat foods as close to source as possible and like to give my pets as close to their natural diet also.

Good nutrition is not just about good food it is also about our thoughts and emotions about food, so it is important to also look at your thoughts about food, not just the food.

Things to watch for ourselves and our pets nutritionally: -

  • If we feel our lives lack a certain sweetness we will often crave sweet foods or feel that we have to sweeten up our lives or our pets lives with sugar - really watch this one - sugar is often 'hidden' in many foods as a preservative and low fat usually equates to high sugar
  • If we feel a bit spacey or that we need grounding we will often eat junk or 'heavy' food to 'ground' ourselves or need to be brought back to earth or when we are feeling less whole or wholesome
  • Be aware of excesses in food - reward for your pets and punishment for yourself. Food is often used for comfort when we cannot find it from other sources.

Ultimately there is no 'good' or 'bad' food, there is just food. Our bodies can handle most things in moderation and balance but do not allow food to become your obsession, crutch or excuse. 

In maybe that our thoughts, bias, guilt or stresses about food could actually be causing more damage to us than the actual food. What emotions and stresses do we also swallow or try to push down?

If your ideals mean you make up fresh natural organic food for your pet but you get really stressed doing it, you may not actually be doing your pet the favour you think you are. 

Nutrition is more than just food. We also consume the energy, thoughts and emotions around that food.
