So often people are interested in learning the ancient art of animal communication because they desperately want to learn how to communicate with their own animal. They then become frustrated because they just can't seem to be able to receive information from...
There are some people whose influence upon us never diminshes even after they have passed into the otherworld. Mr Bo-Jangles was one of those people. His powerful, yet supremely gentle presence was a constant in my life for the best part of a decade. In that time he...
Often people who have attended my Animal Communication Workshops and Animal Ambassadors Apprenticeship describe how they seem to have success hearing the thoughts of animals other than their own but when it comes to their own animals, they seem to have a harder...
One thing I have learned in animal communication is the absolute necessity of heart. This may seem an obvious statement to some but I would still like to share the following story which I hope you will agree reveals this simple truth.
One of my first clients after I had completed my training in Equine Guided Learning came was a lady that I shall call Liz, an outgoing and striking woman in her middle years with a shock of red hair who came to me hoping to learn “how to feel”.
One of my early recollections as a child was standing in the garden of my childhood home, aware of the force of life all around me, in the plants, the grasses and flowers, within the life of insects.
For me, a person’s ability to perceive and communicate with the Otherworld, to hear the thoughts of animals, to communicate with the ancestors are all part of a mystery tradition we now call shamanism.
I use the world Druidry or the Faery Tradition to honour my ancestors and the beautiful gifts that they left behind for us: the trails of golden light, the treasures and gems hidden in song and story, helping us find our way home.

I'd always felt that animal communication was possible. Growing up in my family we had had lots of animals and as soon as I was an adult, I began to surround myself with animals again. I began to realise that animals receive information with their energy bodies all...
Start by imagining your animal in front of you, at a time when the animal is not present. Perhaps just before you go to bed. You may not be able to maintain a mental image of the animal but this does not matter.
I cannot get enough of communicating with animals.
I love it because it challenges my assumptions about them time and time again. I am deeply passionate about increasing people’s awareness of animals as intelligent sentient beings.
One of the animals that I have found the easiest to communicate with is Sally Pups. Sally was a delightful collie who came to live with me as a relatively elderly lady.
I want to tell you a story about my beautiful horse, Apollo.
He is my blessed colleague in my work as Equine Guided Educator, having carried small autistic children on his back, patiently bending whilst they pull his mane and screech in his ears.
