“…and I whispered to the horse
trust no man in whose eye you don’t
see yourself reflected as an equal.”
Don Vincenzo Giobbe
AIT is much more than a toolbox of techniques. It is about energy and intention,
and about belief in the potential and journey of the animals themselves.
The therapy and healing techniques within Animal Intuitive Therapy can be combined and adapted to use either directly with your animal or, more usually, distantly using telepathic communication and/or a proxy.
The following is a list of individual techniques that can be incorporated. Click on the titles for further information.
Animal communication is the basis for all AIT and the means by which it's possible to connect with an animal and better understand the subjective emotional impact and origin of a problem or issue.
Much of AIT involves psychotherapy and techniques from hypnotherapy, to work with an animal to create positive change in the way his or her mind thinks and reacts.
Cognitive behavioural therapy seeks to help the animal think and feel more positively about himself, the world and the other people and animals around him.
It's possible to explore and work therapeutically with the past lives of animals, just like it is with humans. Past life therapy is about addressing very real residual traumas and anxieties that are still impacting on the animal now.
An intense yet effective trauma processing technique that can be used wherever there's a severe emotional response, such as with severe anxiety, phobias, anger and past trauma.
EFT is a technique involving tapping specific points on the body's meridians to release negative energy and put the body into a state of balance, and often works where nothing else will.
NLP helps to build confidence and self-esteem, create positive future images and expectations and reinforce performance or training techniques.
Animals can be affected by the energy of other animals and people around them, and the release of such such energies can have a significant positive effect on an animal's behaviour and feeling state.
Healing can help to speed and support an animal's recovery and is another way of intuitively picking up on areas of imbalance.
Shamanic journeying can help to access lost resources, gain strength and support, explore different aspects of a problem, and retrieve resistant dissociated parts of the self that have split off during trauma.
Kinesiology is a proven and highly effective way of bypassing the conscious mind and asking the body direct questions through muscle testing.
There is no limit to the potential of this kind of therapy.
Whatever the animal - wild or domestic, secure or
traumatised - by working to bring peace and balance at
the deepest levelAIT has the potential to help make life
better, both for animals and the humans who care for them.

or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason and
your own common sense."
