"Other pet related activities: A Metamorphic Technique practitioner.

I grew up with many pets, such as guinea pigs, hamsters and budgies and we always had at least one cat. I love all animals, but cats do have a special place in my heart. I enjoy finding out what makes them tick, giving them the special attention they need and creating a peaceful atmosphere around them. I admire their elegance and acute intelligence. Above all, I have great respect for cats – I understand why the Egyptians worshipped them!

My background is that I have an English degree, and have experienced a wide range of professions, including: support worker to a boy with special needs, reader for short story competitions and gardener.

Now I mostly divide my time between taking care of cats and working from home as a practitioner of the Metamorphic Technique. This complementary practice is a wonderful healing resource, suitable for animals as well as humans, and I use it if any cat in my care needs this kind of support. It has proved very successful in helping nervous or ill-treated cats learn how to relax.

You can read more about the Metamorphic Technique on the official website www.metamorphicassociation.org.uk and if you have any further questions or think that you or your pet could benefit from healing please just let me know."
