My name is Alison and my lifelong passion for animal welfare led to many years training in Reiki, Animal Healing and Zoopharmacognosy and ultimately the creation of The Animal Healing Institute.
We are not the only sentient creatures with feelings and with this knowledge comes the responsibility and obligation to treat other beings with respect, appreciation, compassion and love. Throughout my childhood I was fascinated with animals of all sorts. I watched them, learnt from them and loved them. Aged eight I went on a Brownie trip to the zoo and was distraught at the sight of the animals in captivity. Even at that tender age I held a deep intuitive bond with animals and could sense their fear, loneliness and isolation. I went on to train in animal healing and became a Reiki Master Teacher. Over the years a number of stray and injured animals have found their way to my home, seemingly knowing intuitively that it was a place of healing and safety.
In 2020 I set up the charity West Mercia Animal Refuge (charity no. 1189589) which provides pet foster placements for those fleeing domestic abuse until they can be reunited with their pet. Animals are often the forgotten victims in an abusive home and will do their best to protect and defend their owner, often at a huge cost to their own physical or emotional well-being. During the foster placement we offer free animal healing and Reiki to support them during this difficult time. www.westmerciaanimalrefuge.org.uk
In my book Gratitude, The Missing Piece of the Puzzle, written under the pseudonym Maddy Jones, I detail the many occasions where animals have played a pivotal role in my recognition of the important part they play in our lives and how I can be grateful for their love, guidance and wisdom.

There is no sharp line of distinction between the human and animal kingdom. It is a blurred line and becoming more so all the time. Humans have an enormous power to affect the world any way we choose. By offering animal healing and Reiki we can connect with and offer unconditional love and healing while building up levels of trust with both are own companion animals and those in rescue centers, captivity and in the wild. Through the Animal Healing Institute it is hoped we can spread the gift of healing and Reiki to as many people as possible to make this a kinder world for the animals we are so blessed to share our lives with.
We offer a range of courses related to holistic animal welfare along with traditional training in Pet First Aid.
We also offer one-to-one animal consultations in animal healing, Reiki and Zoopharmacognosy
Once you connect with animals through energy healing you realise that they do indeed have feelings, aspirations and fears just as we do. It is our role to ensure they enjoy their best life possible in our care. We can also learn skills to offer support to animals in rescue centres, zoos and in nature.
