My name is Rachel. A Registered Nurse by background, I have taken the leap to follow my passion...all things animal!!!

My name is Rachel. A Registered Nurse by background, I have taken the leap to follow my passion...all things animal!!!!

I live with my husband and teenage son near the Pennines and am fortunate enough to have some of the most beautiful countryside on my doorstep. I have had animals all my life from hamsters to horses (and most of everything in-between).

All breeds considered, large or small and flexible to suit different needs. Group walks and individual walks offered. Pick up and drop off from your home. Pet visits including puppies, cats and small animals.

I am fully Insured, CRB checked and also Registered with N.A.R.P.s (National Association of Pet Sitters and Dog Wallers). I have successfully completed a Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers Business course and am currently studying for a Diploma in Dog Psychology.

I offer Reiki Healing as a complimentary therapy and have been practising Animal Communication since 2007.

For piece of mind, I also have access to a 24hr Vet Advice service.

Please feel free to get in touch so we can discuss your requirements / options.

What's Animal Reiki used for?

We are alive because life force energy or "Chi" energy is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. This disruption can be caused by:-

* following surgery

* following an illness

* for an ageing animal

It is also extremely powerful for emotional healing following:-

* trauma, abuse, neglect

* fear and trust issues

Reiki reduces stress and induces a deep relaxation. It can also provide compassionate support in helping an animal to pass, when the time comes, in a more peaceful way both for the animal and their human.

Benefits from the Reiki

Animals are very much in tune with their human companions. In their efforts to protect us they often take on our worries, anxieties and even physical problems. Reiki helps to protect the animal's own health and sense of well-being. Humans benefit greatly from reiki, most of all it does you good and you can benefit from the healing as well as your animal.

Reiki compliments both Conventional and Alternative Therapies and can enhance their actions and lesson any side effects.

Not sure if this is for you or your animal? Just ask by contacting me. No question is too silly, I'm here to help.
