Animal actions speak louder
I first began having treatments for both my horses and myself about two years ago and since then I have never looked back. It is often said that we wish our animals could talk but actually sometimes actions speak louder than words. To watch any of my horses being treated by Zoë leaves you in no doubt that something very special is taking place. Every horse responds slightly differently during the healing sessions, but afterwards they all have one thing in common, they are all very relaxed. I could not believe my eyes the first time Zoë visited my stables. One by one each of my horses got down in their stables and fell asleep. I had an entire yard of sleeping horses at 2pm. Given their electric personalities, this was an unbelievable situation and if I had not seen it with my own eyes I would never have believed it! The healing treatments that Zoë administers to me and my horses helps us in so many different ways and on so many levels. Zoë’s treatments gives me reassurance, happiness and the combination of her amazing results leaves me emotional and speechless.

Mother and son bonding
My two horses, Lina and her son Kevin, have never bonded. As soon as weaning was over Lina took an instant dislike of her son, if he even looked in her direction she would go crazy, ears back, teeth bared etc. They could just about be turned out next door to each other but never have any contact. Leading them together was unheard of! This situation made Kevin a bit aggressive towards his field mates.
Zoë came and saw both horses a couple of months ago. It wasn’t obvious straight away but I did notice that Kevin was behaving himself with his field mates almost immediately. Then one day, I noticed them talking to each other over the fence. To my delight they have become inseparable.
The relationship between mother and son has flourished since Zoë’s treatment. I can’t thank her enough. I plan to have regular top-ups.
Body, Mind and Spirit – is the way I would describe what Zoë does. She doesn’t only look for the physical symptoms, but most important, she looks for the origin of the problem or trauma in the mind that creates the physical imbalance. Because the mind and body work as a complete system – they are 'one'. The horse will only give a top performance when the two are in balance and working together. Even though Vive is nearly 25 years old, covered in her winter coat with a muddy mane, Zoë can see through this and see this one beautiful horse as he is and as he once was. Zoë is very aware that Vive has his purpose still. Zoë is able to see the special characteristics of each horse and single out their differences. Antyas can sometimes be very fidgety around handlers or healers he does not know. However, when Antyas first met Zoë he was very relaxed and behaved as if he had known her all his life.

Canine pack mentality
I asked Zoë to see Cleo because she had a relationship problem with other dogs. Soon after the healing we went away for a weekend and Cleo stayed with the breeder. When we first arrived poor Cleo spent the first 15 minutes or so completely plastered to the ground, on her back, in submissive position - her sister and her auntie wanted to make sure that she knew her place in the pack... We left soon after, when the dogs had calmed down some.
When we picked Cleo up on the way home, the breeder said she couldn't get over how well-adapted Cleo was, how she quickly and easily found her place in the pack, and how well she played with ALL the dogs - her sister included. The breeder literally said, "I can't get over how mellow and well-adjusted she is. She's a joy to have and completely understands the pack mentality. She was so calm, happy to play, but always calm afterwards." And it's true: When we picked her up, Cleo was just relaxed, mouthing and greeting the other dogs, but not in submission - but rather, in love.
I feel change is afoot in Cleo, and I know that this past weekend was a big test for her - one she passed with flying colours. I've yet to see how she reacts to other dogs on leash, and head-on, as our treatment together, since we haven't met any yet (we either were out and didn't cross any other dogs, or Cleo would just plain refuse to go out for anything else than relieving herself in the rain.
An Update about Cleo:
Cleo's behaviour with other dogs is markedly improved. She is still having some issues with black dogs for some reason, and smaller dogs on leash. They tend to be the ones who have also charged at her/ nipped her heels/ just been plain little-dog-feisty, so we continue to work on it. She is SO much better when we come across men in hats, though! :-) I noticed that for a while at least, she seemed to be wanting to dominate less in play, although I think much of that depends on the dogs she's playing with. She's met a wonderful, handsome four-footed fellow named Chester - a beautiful Hungarian Vizla - who has been really good about showing her what he will and won't stand for, and I feel like that's having a knock-on effect on her play behaviour. She's also been more able to walk by other dogs on leash without getting completely riled up.

Zoë was originally recommended to me by two different friends. They had used her to treat their animals successfully. I’m so glad they did, she has made such a difference to my horses' lives! I was having trouble with my horse Dali, a highly strung Andalucía. The horse was clearly very intelligent and had so much talent it was unbelievable. However, we had some major problems. Firstly, he was a nightmare to load on to the horsebox. Secondly, he couldn’t relax and seemed generally always on edge, and thirdly he was struggling with a specific movement.
Loading – Dali had always been tricky to load but the problem got worse and worse. He had got to the point where you would get him up the ramp onto the lorry, but he would then turn straight around and get back off. He would then stress and sweat up on the journey and get off the lorry absolutely soaked. It really hit its worst point when trying to load him to come home after a training session and he was so desperate to get back off the lorry that he crushed me and dislocated my shoulder and damaged my arm. Zoë has worked with Dali on this and has helped to not only get him on the lorry easier, but he now travels without sweating up and is more relaxed.
Being uptight – Dali has always been just a bit highly strung and uptight. Since seeing Zoë, Dali is now very relaxed, has a great relationship with me and is now unaffected by most things, whether is be a loud noise or things moving or flapping near him. I cannot believe what a different horse is now and everyone comments on the difference in him.
Struggling with a movement – Dali is a dressage horse and he is working at quite a high level at home. He could do some really complicated movements, but he could not/ would not do a walk canter transition, which, considering what else he can do, is very basic. It didn’t matter what I tried to do, he would get very het up, he’d rear, buck, leap, trot off sideways, anything but do the transition. Zoe spent a session with Dali on this. The following day I rode him, I asked for the walk canter transition and it just happened as though he’d always done it. I couldn’t believe it. I did it again and again, he just kept doing it with no fuss. My friends and trainer could not believe it!
With every session he has with Zoë, Dali seems to grow and develop within himself, I couldn’t be more pleased!
On the hoof
Having had such success with Zoe with my other horse Dali, I asked Zoë to do some healing on my beautiful Spanish Stallion, Musgo. He had suffered a limonitic type attack, although after thorough testing, the vets could not get to the bottom of what was wrong. He had sore front feet and it would take him a while to walk comfortably and with ease. I asked Zoë if she could help and she said she’d do her very best. The day after his first treatment, he pulled me out of his stable and pulled and tugged all the way to the paddock. He then could barely wait to be let off and as soon as he was, he went off bucking and squealing! I can’t thank Zoë enough for what she’s done for me and my horses and I can’t recommend her enough!
Sore doggie ears
Dear Zoë, Bella is doing really, really well and the chronic ear infection she has had for the past two years is nearly gone. I have from cleaning out her ear every day to once a week. She is scratching and itching far less. I credit this recovery to various holistic treatments – acupuncture, Chinese herbs, change of diet and her healing session with Zoe.

Dear Zoë, I cannot believe the change in Mr Jones.I took him back to the vets,where he had an xray and ultra sound. His enlarged heart is back to its normal size!!!! The vet was amazed. Prior to your healing they said that Mr Jones would not survive the night. His heart rate was a staggering 350 per minute, and his blood pressure was barely readable, because it was so low.
He is still on his drugs, but the vet wants to reduce them by half at the end of March. Mr Jones is back to his playful, lovable self. I do not know how we can ever thank you Zoë.
Dear Zoe, Just to let you know the great news. Mr Jones had his 6 monthly check up. Mr Jones has been so well, and I was concerned about him reducing his medication. The vet explained to me that a special blood test could determine if the drugs were keeping him going or his heart was functioning correctly. The blood test proved that Mr Jones heart was working for itself!!!!!! The vets in the practise were amazed at his recovery. I was not surprised, as I had every faith in you Zoë, and all the countless times you have done your absent healing for him. Again we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
