Dolly & Me

Dip Amp - Membership  of  I.E.P - I.A.A.T - A.M.M.T

I have been around horses from a young age & started working with horses straight from school in English and Western styles.

Having owned horses throughout this time &  more recently my beautiful Grey mare.

Sometimes the horse chooses you, for whatever reason, its then up to you to listen to that reason. 

She was the reason that I started my education with

Equine Body Work & Holistic Therapies.

Qualifying in Equine & Canine Merishia Massage, which is a Soft Tissue Therapy & Gentle Mobilisation Techniques, Cranial Work and Myofascial Release.  Qualifying with 'Horse's Voice' on the Certification course for Equine Energy & Connection.

As a Reiki Master I use Reiki/Energy in my sessions with your horse to promote a Calm & Connected way of treating & working.

I am a member of The Association of Merishia Massage Therapists also  I.A.A.T International Association of Animal Therapists and I.E.P International Equine Professionals which guarantee a continued high standard of care, training and ethics.

I continue to work on my professional development & knowledge of the whole horse.

Helping Horses to release tension, stress & restrictions in their whole body  promoting balance for

Body, Mind & Spirit

Thank you so much for Peg's treatment yesterday, she has been very chilled since! I really love the way you are with her, she knows you like her and responds well to you. You just get her completely & I'm very thankful that she has you helping her become the best version of herself that she can be. I wouldn't want anyone else treating her. xx

When you've been doing energy, breath work & communicating with your ponies all along without realizing it.  Mainly due to your lack of self belief in ability & then you speak to a wonderful professional about the way you interact with our ponies on a daily basis and it all comes to light. Thank you so much for your time the other day Helen, you helped way beyond the initial reason you came and I am so so grateful for your guidance in furthering all I am already doing. Charlotte

Cranial Therapy

This is a Gentle Soft Tissue Treatment, using  a light touch which works with the body in order to achieve a release.
