You have lost your best buddy...and it hurts!

You want to adopt or create a better bond with your pet dog?

How do you cope with the loss of someone special?

Stress, Major Life Changes, Worries, No Zest In Life?

What keeps you awake at night?  

I use effective counselling techniques, resulting in a balanced and more joyful life, free from overpowering thoughts. "Let your authenticity shine and discover how amazing you are!"

I also developed a dog-assisted human therapy approach program for those who own a dog. Through this approach, you can learn to receive your dog's wisdom. It can help speed up your therapy process and teach you how to deal with emotions, creating calm and trusting relationships.

Sessions can take place in the office, or I will meet dog owners in the comfort of their own homes. 

 

Feeling Good!

"D" Drug

Petting a dog can help increase your serotonin and dopamine levels, the chemicals that make you feel good and reduce stress levels, and blood pressure. It's an almost free and healthy drug. 

What About My Dog?

It is always good to check with your veterinarian to see if there are no internal factors causing bad behaviour, such as low levels of serotonin.  A recent study showed that low levels of serotonin (a brain chemical) may be linked to aggression in dogs. For humans this can lead to depression and anxiety. Oxytocin or the 'feel good' chemical shows the same effect for both humans and dogs; it works on our social behaviour, and for dogs, this is no different.
