Having been a life-long pet owner, I understand how strong the bond between people and their companion animals can be. I also understand how devastating it is to lose that companion.
I run my own successful dog walking business in Glasgow & I feel that pet bereavement counselling is a much needed service that doesn’t really exist here in Scotland as at 2019. I want to be of use and support my clients when the time comes. Unfortunately that is part of the deal with most pets, they don’t live as long as we do so sadly it’s inevitable.
Of course not all feelings of grief come from the death of a pet. Sometimes people have to relocate for work, give up pets for medical reasons or indeed feel they are no longer able to care for their pets for a multitude of reasons. It does not matter what species the companion animal is. What is important is the fact that someone has lost their pet who was of great importance to them and is experiencing difficulty coping with this loss. This is why I have opened my service up to be accessible to anyone anywhere.
I studied Pet Bereavement Counselling with The ISCP – The International School for Canine Psychology and Behaviour Ltd. which is an official vendor for Pet Professional Guild and is approved as a global college by The Association of INTODogs, the National Register of Dog Trainers & Behaviourists, Modern Dog Group and the Complementary Medical Association. They are also recommended by The Good Vet Guide.
I am a member of The Complementary Medical Association & fully insured.
As a low cost alternative to counselling, we have written a book called ‘How To Recover From Pet Loss – Supporting You On Your Journey to Acceptance’ which is available on Amazon. http://mybook.to/RecoverFromPetLoss
