Calling for Volunteers
Are you a dog owner?
Do you struggle with the relationship you have with your dog?  Find dog training difficult?
Do you want to try out an innovative new therapy that can help?
I am looking for 5 volunteer clients over the next 6 months for help in collecting evidence-based 
data for my counselling service for dog owners.  Featured in Psychologies Magazine (coming out 
on 19th
 February 2018), Anubis Therapy is a unique counselling service for people interested in 
personal development and how their dog can help.  Owners talking about the difficulties they have 
with their dog, in a safe, judgement-free environment helps them with their dogs and also in other 
areas in their lives.
This project is specifically looking at the benefits of Anubis Therapy in face-to-face sessions, with 
the dog present in the room.  I am looking to collect evidence of how our dog’s behaviour is 
reflected in the session and how that understanding might help the client
Volunteers are invited to attend, with their dogs, up to 6 face-to-face hour-long counselling sessions,
at the Hounds Connect therapy room in Drymen, in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
If you are curious about what your dog can teach you and are interested in being part of the research
for a ground-breaking therapy, I would love to hear from you.  
Give me a call on 07796 338584 or 01360660474 .  I look forward to working with you.

A workshop of interpersonal mindfulness practices to cultivate deep, nourishing connection.  Based on the Hakomi Method

‘Loving Presence’ is a state in which you naturally attend to another person with compassion and curiosity in a way that is nourishing for both of you.  It is the most helpful state to be in when offering support and assisting others in their psychological and emotional healing. It’s a natural state often occluded by our mental habits and assumptions. 

The workshop will help you to cultivate this state through a series of interpersonal exercises designed to help you uncover the unconscious habits you bring to relating with others, often habits that inhibit connection.  We can then create space to try out new habits which enhance connection and allow for healing.  

These practices are foundational to the Hakomi Method, a mindfulness-based, body-centered form of therapeutic self-discovery.

What you'll take away:
  • Enhanced understanding of yourself.
  • An increased sense of connection with other people.
  • An increased ability to sustain your energy in the presence of others in pain.

Facilitators:  Diarmid Baillie and Lisa Halse, Certified Hakomi Therapists.
