Like humans – every animal is different

So why one dog, for example is persistently digging holes for one reason, another might be digging holes for a completely different reason. Also you may have two cats grieving, but their grieving behaviour may be very different from each other.

Body language
Your pet may convey certain things through body language – e.g: feeling anxious, scared or aggressive. But that doesn’t necessarily tell you WHY they are feeling that way. We need to know ‘why’ so we can correct the situation in a loving and caring way.

Just curious?
You might not have a problem. Perhaps you’re just curious to know what your pet is thinking and feeling. Great! Your pet loves the fact that you are asking questions. It makes them feel cared about and valued.

Some common problems
Some problems clients would like to understand more and resolve include:

Change in living circumstances

  • Animal new to family
  • Moving house
  • New baby in house

Rescue animals

Sessions are often useful for animals that have been in many homes. When they come from abusive situations, even from rescue centres, they bring with them a myriad of emotional problems. Having a communication with these animals can quickly resolve these issues. This will ensure that the new member of the family will integrate well and be a much happier and loving pet.

That’s okay. This is only a small number to give you a gist. Whatever the problem is, Faye’s session is likely to shine some light on it. If you have any queries or concerns, feel free to contact Faye

Often the animals have solutions to their behaviour – behaviour that may be problematic for their human and/or the animal. With medical problems, a visit to a vet/specialist may be required before the problem is properly diagnosed and solved.

Some trends

While each animal is different, there are some trends in behaviour that may assist your understanding of what’s going on. See the ‘emotion tabs’ below:

An animal can feel anxiety from something as simple as leaving them for hours and they haven’t been told how long you’ll be gone or where you’re going.  Not all animals feel anxiety but definitely sensitive, insecure animals have expressed this.
Pets can express this emotion when another animal is introduced to the family or a new baby coming into the family. They need to know what is happening, that they are just as important a member of the family as they were before.
Just like us, loneliness can affect some pets more than others it depends on their personality. If they display lethargic behaviour, whining when you are not around which disturb the neighbours, incessant ‘following you around’ when you get home then it’s possible they are lonely. By communicating with your animal we can find out the cause.
This can be quite a problem with some animals. Depending on their age, breed, likes and dislikes, animals need certain stimulation to be content and engaged. By communicating with them you may learn what they need.
This isn’t something we necessarily associate with animals. However, from my own experience I have found they can be very sad indeed if they are taken away from a family member they love. They feel the loss and display sadness, not that we always pick up that this is what they are feeling. I have also found that an animal can be sad about something a human family member is going through, it’s like they are sharing the sadness.
This was an interesting one to me. I have come across animals that were worried about the health of their owner. They may have cancer or have had life threatening surgery and their animal actually is concerned about them. Sometimes the worry is about what will happen to them if their owner passes away or goes into a nursing home etc.
This is more common than we may expect from an animal. We are used to humans grieving the loss of someone or something but we don’t always acknowledge that an animal can also display this emotion. Elephants grieve the loss of a family member over a number of days and will even visit the burial site at future times. Dogs grieve when their human dies or they are separated from their elderly human who has had to move to a Nursing Home. When animals grieve the emotion is palpable, but you may have not recognized it as such.
By communicating with an animal these emotions and feelings can be understood. And answers can be given that change the issue for them. Same as us – when we know why and how to handle something we feel better and more secure.
