The Animal Healing Workshop exceeded my expectations. Liz was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable on so many fronts. A true animal lover. I would not hesitate on attending another workshop. It was well thought out and informative but most of all inspiring, but of course the animals were the stars of the show. Sharon

It was a pleasure and a privilege to attend Elizabeth’s Animal Healing Workshop. She is such a lovely knowledgeable person and very inspirational. A joy to be with in every way. Liz

Hi Elizabeth - Tigger is getting on BRILLIANTLY!!! After his healing with you, self selecting the food oils and his nutritional consultation. He is a new dog - skipping along ahead of me with the other two hooligans and generally really enjoying life. He loves his sardines (Bruno says he wants some too!), and has his oils when he wants them. He is moving so much better and seems far happier in himself. Cherry

This has been an absolutely fabulous day. It is incredible the power of healing. The lovely energy meeting with like minded people I have had a wonderful day. Please do some more. Thank you for sharing with us. Love, light and peace. Val

A day with Liz was worth its weight in gold. Informative and fascinating on so many levels – I love that I have learnt much more about animals, herbs and people all in one day! How much better can it get than that. Lucinda

Lovely seminar from a wonderful healer whose animals are so receptive to healing! Very inspirational Liz’s healing work with animals. Very informative Animal healing workshop. As a human healer I love the animal dimension and I now feel inspired to train in the Diploma in Animal Healing with. Suzie

I have learnt so much on the animal self selection day. I can’t wait to try the recipes out. Such an interesting topic, I can’t learn enough about this. Thank you so much. Diane

Masses of information given throughout the animal self selection day! I loved working with the horses and foraging in the hedgerows. An added bonus was making some nutritious dog biscuits, which my Toby loved! Jean

Made me look at hedgerow herbs in a different way – use my intuition more. Thank you. Beth

An informative workshop - a real eye opener: how nature has everything to help that we can use. It was so special as I had my first close contact with a horse and saw what majestic creatures they are close up. Can’t wait to learn more. Tracey

On the Animal Healing Day, I loved Liz’s top tips, I learned quite a few new things about my dog and cat thank you! Virginia
