Find your animal’s personal path to health
with a 60-min 1:1 consultation with our veterinary herbalist.

The Liminal Keys™ Wayfinding Consult is the doorway to your animal’s true health.

Our goal is to make animal healthcare animal-focused, more understood by both you and your animal, and empower your animal to flourish with the treatment you select for them…not be encumbered by it.

During Your Consult,

We will discuss your healthcare concerns for your animal

We map out up to three clear, succinct healthcare management steps using my proprietary process, The Liminal Keys™.

We document our discussion in a two-page plan that is completed and shared with you vide email.

Imagine…

N

You have a map you can understand. One you helped in creating, that shows an achievable healthcare management plan, complete with waymarkers to look for along the way.  

N

The consultation and the plan you create will reduce the time, and anxiety, you take to determine the healthcare facts you need for timely decision-making and reduce unwanted duplication of effort and expense.

N

Spending more play time laughing and having fun with your animal, instead of worrying about your animal being able to play and be happy.

N

You can nourish your animal and your relationship.

N

Instead of being buffeted along waiting for the next health issue your animal will manifest, you are nourishing the body, mind and relationship between you and your animal.

Let me guess…

You feel like screaming every time someone tells you to book *another* appointment without telling you when the booking treadmill will stop and your animal will be healthy?

Or maybe, you’re secretly wishing someone will just tell you one simple answer to your animal’s health. (And at the same time, so tired of all the advice, everywhere, all the time.)

It feels like everyone’s a guru telling you THE secret tactic or supplement.

    The truth is:

    Many of them don’t want you to realise that you’ve had access to the answers this whole time – you just needed some space and strategies to extract the knowledge that’s already being shared with you by your animal.

    Is this you?

    • You do your very best to get guidance from people that know the moving parts of animal health care, recognising that your animal’s insides are a dark place that you haven’t a hope of understanding. But, you aren’t always able to solve your animal’s problems.  
    • You often feel like you aren’t considered a valuable contributor to the health care provided to your animal.
    • You don’t understand why the prescriptions given to you for your animal don’t work.  There are always so many unknowns.
    • You don’t know how to value the quality of health care service provided, nor what questions to ask when things don’t change for your animal.

    If any of the above sounds familiar, it may be time to approach your animal’s healthcare from a new direction.

    True health is found by stepping into the liminal spaces of the unknown with just yourself and your animal.

    Where you can understand the moving parts that exist in an animal healthcare treatment plan, and learn to speak for your animal and be heard.

    Because like you, we know life is just better with animals.

      Our Philosophy

      Understanding & Honouring True Health 

      Living traditional Western Herbal Medicine views the body as a vibrant expression of elemental forces where the sum is greater than that of the individual parts.  There is balance in synergy.  

      The individual, human, animal or otherwise is both autonomous and interdependent.  As an animal companion, trusting and knowing your individual animal, knowing what balances and rebalances them is unquestionably, a magical treasure.

      True health, in the living traditional Western Herbal Medicine philosophy, is to honour the individual’s own equilibrium and understand there is an underlying imbalance that led to and sustained dis-ease for that individual.

      Our Framework

      Willow Wise Therapies “ReCIPE”

      These goals are the North Star that guide everything we do.

      E: Emotional Support

      All animal owners are able to connect with their animal to provide what the animal needs for emotional stability.

      Achieving True Health

      Reducing health to a single shortfall to be corrected will not result in true health. Healthcare must be oriented to the individual, whether human or animal.

      True health is found by stepping into the liminal spaces of the unknown with just yourself and your animal.  

      In those liminal spaces you will encounter the Three Challenges of the Animal Companion:

      • To nourish and be nourished
      • To lead and to be led
      • To be understood and to understand.

      You are not without guidance in the liminal spaces.

      The Liminal Keys™

      The Liminal Keys™ are a hidden part of you that you may not have known existed before.  The music they create unlock the liminal spaces of the body to bring your stewardship of animal-centred healthcare for your animal into harmony.

      The Wayfinding Consult, using the first three keys, will help you by describing, gathering and formulating a healthcare strategy that is unique to your animal and you.

      Liminal Key #1

      l

      Describe

      First, you’ll describe your animal’s health using your senses as well as the story that you’ve shared together thus far. This helps us to define a goal for your animal’s healthcare plan.

      Liminal Key #2

      i

      Gather

      You’ll determine and gather any additional information and resources needed to reach your healthcare destination with your animal.

      Liminal Key #3

      Formulate

      Here, we create step-by-step healthcare actions that are exactly what you are capable of doing for your animal. Together, we’ll define the map to get you and your animal where you want to be.

      Decode your animal’s health clues by describing, gathering and formulating a healthcare strategy that is unique to your animal and you.

          What to Expect

          Veterinary Herbalist Guidance & Animal Health Clarity

          I know that often you just need to be able to check in to see if you’re going in the right direction. The structure of the consultation will provide the direction, and I’ll be there to guide you and get you clear on what you already know about the health of your animal.

          Clear Sensory Observations & Action Steps

          The consult is designed to get your animal healthcare management clear, and as a result, create confidence in your ability to describe health concerns and monitor for changes. All of the action steps that we develop during the consultation are aligned to this ultimate goal. We’ll be finding your animal’s own health signs using your senses so you’ll know exactly how your actions are improving your stewardship of your animal’s healthcare.

          PLUS Your Bonus:

          Included as a special bonus just for you is a simple guide to getting to know what ‘normal health is for your dog’.

          Find your answers to:

          • Overcome the struggle to collate and remember the habits and behaviours that are uniquely your dog.

           

          • Have an easy way to wade your way through the sea of well meaning, but often conflicting advice, to making a choice that is right for your dog and you.

           

           

          Is a Wayfinding Consult the right fit for you?

          This IS a good fit for you if:

          N

          You want to be spending more play time laughing and having fun with your animal, instead of worrying about your animal being able to play and be happy.

          N

          You want a healthcare plan for your animal.  One that you can see, and feel, the actions you take are having a positive effect in creating good health for your animal.

          N

          You don’t want to be pushed along, rudderless waiting for the next health issue your animal to manifest.

          N

          You want to know you are nourishing the body, mind and relationship between you and your animal.

          This is NOT be a good fit for you if:

          M

          You aren’t ready to prioritise your animal’s self-care yet.

          M

          Your animal is currently in a complex health crisis and needs consistent support.

          M

          You’re unwilling to improve behaviours, habits, or thought patterns that are detrimental to overall animal-centred healthcare management.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          Do I have to buy more supplements or remedies, potions or lotions?

          Nope, not at all. This consultation is about reviewing what you already do and know in regards to healthcare for your animal using a living traditional veterinary herbalism, animal-centred healthcare lens.

          How much time does this take to do the action?

          The actions that we discuss and agree upon in the session are those that you decide you can actually do and in what time frame.  The aim of the consult is not to give a list of things a mile long, nor a mountain to climb.

          Our veterinary herbalist puts small, micro adjustments that can be made, into your hands AND you both discuss how you can see, feel, hear and/or smell any changes for the adjustments that you put into place.  

          You don’t need dozens of appointments wondering whether things are changing or not.  You won’t be left with an “I, the Clinician, have fixed everything now” and still have the niggling feeling that things haven’t really changed at all for your animal.

          What will the results be?

          How about results, plural:

          • Spend more play time laughing and having fun with your animal, instead of worrying about your animal being able to play and be happy.
          • Feel the fascinating transformative energy of your animal growing and emerging with you.
          • Trust in their autonomy and their relationship with you.
          • Your relationship with your animal is resourceful and creative, live with excited anticipation and the freedom to enjoy the waypoints you and your animal will experience together.
          Can I do this later?

          The consultation is booked at the time of paying.  You can book up to 7 days in advance of payment. 

          Your ability to problem solve health concerns for your animal remains complicated and without quick resolution.

          You remain anxious because of the uncertainty in being able to have a happy, healthy animal.

          Your animal continues to be uncomfortable and unhappy and as a result, you are uncomfortable and unhappy.

          Every possible solution costs: in time, energy and sometimes in tears and pain.  There is only: Is the problem fixed or is it not?

          What kind of support is included?

          This is a single consultation designed to give you the clarity for the path you are already taking with your animal.  You finish the consultation with a document that details what we discuss, agreed action steps that are things you can actually do and clarity on how to allow your animal to take centre stage in their own healthcare plan.

          Do I need anything before we meet?
          • You need your animal.
          • You need to have completed “The Liminal Keys Describe” form, which will be available online after booking your appointment.
