About Me

As a Coach, I help people to become the best dog owners that they can be, build confidence, understand how the owner can influence their dog, and build an unbreakable bond.

I use my skills, knowledge and personal experiences to help my clients cope with and manage problems and overcome obstacles that are preventing them from improving life for their pooch pal and themselves.
My motivation is to support and train people to master the art of self-preservation, seek solutions and achieve the best for themselves and their dogs, which will have beneficial influences on both parties.

Who am I to preach? 

I firmly believe that having a great relationship with your dog, staying positive and developing self-coping strategies can help you overcome many of life’s difficulties.
Combining my passions, skills, knowledge, qualifications and own encounters, I can provide you with much needed coaching and support to get you through the hard times and reach where you want to be.
With 30 years experience of having been through a number of dog related trials and tribulations, plus a lifetime of tussling adversities in other areas, I often personally relate to the challenges of my clients, which gives me a better understanding of how to assist others.
I don’t admit to knowing all the answers, but I have found ways to master the art of self-preservation, overcome obstacles, stay motivated and achieve goals. If you are determined and committed, I will do my very best to help you.
Day to day existence is a rollercoaster of learning and mixed emotions, but I’ve invested in developing my knowledge and gained valuable experience to support myself and my dogs. With commitment, perseverance and consistency the rewards make it all worthwhile.

I want to support you

Along with life’s experiences I have gained a number of relevant qualifications, including Life Coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Bereavement, Dog Behaviour and Training, and Canine Communication, which have enabled me to help myself and put me in a better position to be able to help you too.
In my quest to promote responsible dog ownership and whilst developing my business there has been a natural progression to meet the priority needs of my clients, which now combines educating the owner to manage themselves as well as retaining much needed sanity for dog associated issues. Taking the owner into the equation, I discuss their well-being and desired goals that can have a bearing on their feelings and emotions, and ultimately a knock-on effect to those around them, including their dog. 
Concentrating on both ends of the lead with Dog Owner Coaching and Support, I teach how the owner influence can impact the dog, along with the environment and an endless list of other factors that come into play. It’s all about taking full responsibility, thinking logically, gaining awareness, being accountable, consistently implementing positivity, and understanding both yourself and your dog.

Kind and Ethical

Formerly a Gold Member of the Pet Professional Network, the first international business support organisation and educational platform, for kind, ethical and trusted pet professionals, I am proud to maintain their values contributing to raising the standards of animal welfare worldwide.

Having left the Pet Professional Network to pursue further projects, I will continue to uphold their principles and will always be profoundly grateful for their support in helping me to achieve the successes I have.

Why you should work with me

A lot of professionals, whether Coaches or Counsellors, will have quite rightly learned their skills and gained knowledge from studying and qualifications. 

However, I have developed my skills from many personal experiences over the years and then reinforced my knowledge with the appropriate qualifications, so the experience together with the qualifications enables me to help you more effectively.

If you have the genuine want to invest in you and your dog and are prepared to put in the effort needed, please join me and gain the power to succeed.
