She has begun a TV series on dog training, works with animals for the movie industry, oversees the rehabilitation of wild animals and teaches owners how to listen to their pets.

She specialises in counselling individuals and couples in body-based practices, addictions, sexual health, dedicated intimacy and relationships.
