A client after their first session said: “It sounds like I need to change into a completely different person.”

Me: “There is no need to change into someone else, it’s more about returning to who you really are.”

Client: “Thank you for putting it like that, it feels much better”.

Becoming “better” with animals, building or developing a relationship of trust and confidence is a process of stripping back.

It’s not about changing into a different type of person, someone you don’t really want to be.

It’s about undoing all the years of social and cultural conditioning and the walls you have built around yourself in order to feel safe and protected from whatever life has thrown at you, that have caused you to lose sight of yourself.

Once you are able to return to who you truly are, your animals can connect with you in a different space.

Once you start to let go of everything that is holding you back, there is only trust.
