My name is Catherine Edwards. I have a BSc in Biology, specialising in Animal Behaviour and Physiology, and an MBA. I also have professional qualifications as follows:

My real passion has always been animals, and I have owned my own horse(s), cats, dogs and guinea pigs for over 30 years. I have a keen interest in natural horsemanship and apply a holistic approach when working with horses, using a combination of Equine Iridology, Herbal Remedies, Zoopharmacognosy, Red Light Therapy, Animal Communication and a detailed knowledge of Equine Behaviour and Nutrition.
Having qualified as an Equine Iridologist with the world renowned Ellen Collinson I have built up an extensive knowledge in this area.

I work with a network of therapists, equine practitioners and vets and I am excited to share this journey with you.
