I have spent my life surrounded by dogs having had everything from one West Highland White Terrier up to four at any one time! My background is in teaching which I continue to be extremely passionate about. However I had always dreamed of working with dogs but I never knew exactly what I wanted to do; though I did know I wanted to do something that would improve their quality of life.
After a chance conversation with a friend in Richmond Park, I went about searching and researching. It was then that I came across Galen Therapy Centre. I sent an email to Julia that same day and arranged to go to West Sussex for a visit. I was lucky enough to watch a few treatments and was inspired. I remember thinking that I would love to be able to ‘do something like that’ and help dogs in the way that she was helping them; I knew from that day that this was for me. Since then I haven’t looked back. I enrolled on The Diploma in Canine Massage Therapy and thanks to a lot of hard work and the supportive and knowledgeable tutors, I have recently qualified.
I truly feel privileged to meet so many wonderful dogs that really benefit from being treated with Galen Canine Myotherapy. Every dog I meet and work with is different and every single one of them teaches me something new.
