"I firmly believe that each human being has something in this world that they are supposed to devote their time and passion towards. The Japanese call this idea ‘Ikigai’ – a reason for being. There are four parts to this concept. The first is “that which you love” – I have had a strong, deep connection to animals since I can remember. I would count down the seconds at school until I could run all the way to the stables, and if you had a dog you could almost forget any interaction with me – I would be talking pretty much exclusively with your dog! I have a very old ex-racehorse, a spirited younger horse that I’ve had since he was a foal, and a 7 yo black labrador, all of which I love dearly. They are my version of meditation every day – my absolute favourite part!
The second part to ‘Ikigai’ is “that which you are good at” – my devotion to animals has led me down a path of self-enlightenment regarding animal welfare. In retrospect, I have had many animals in the past who was signaling to me that they were not 100% comfortable. However, I was not aware of their condition, simply because I did not know to look for the signs! My inquisitive nature has inspired my career journey through Master’s Level training with the University of Nottingham & a consistent minimum of 3 CPD activities a year alongside professional body IRVAP. It is imperative to be a lifelong learner with an open mind to truly be the best in your field that you can be.
The third part is “that which the world needs” – I support the idea that we must all try to leave the world in a better place than we found it, and I intend to make an impact on the lives of the animals I work with through improvements in the awareness of animal welfare. My career has enabled me to access an unprecedented amount of high-quality, peer-reviewed research. Through the acquisition of this knowledge, I am now able to pass this on to other people through the services of physiotherapy.
The last is “that which you can be paid for” – let’s be honest, we all need to make a living. But I’m not just being paid in money! I am being blessed with the variety of personalities I get to work with, as well as being part of the team that allows them to live a happy, functional life. I count my blessings every day; grateful that I am able to make a difference through a career that I absolutely love."
I look forward to helping you & your animals ???
