What Do I Need to Know About an Animal Session?

All consultations are provided by phone or by email. For those living or vacationing in the Reno, Nevada area, in-person consultations are available if it will best serve the needs of your situation. Please see the explanation in the Should My Appointment be Long Distance or In Person? on this page.

All long distance sessions are done using photographs of the animals involved. For an explanation of how Leslie connects with the animals long distance using a photograph see Why Do I Need to Send a Photograph? on this page.

For a description of the photographs and information to send us when scheduling your session please see How Do I Prepare For a Session? on this page.


Each Animal Session Has Three Parts

The Healing and Communication sessions and the Health, Diet, and Nutrition consultations have three parts: the intake, the actual work with your critter kid, and the conclusion.

The Intake

During the intake you are encouraged to explain everything you are concerned about that you want to have addressed during the consultation. Being able to safely share everything that burdens you is an important part of the healing process. Because we are all interconnected in the web of life, insuring that your story is heard and is clearly understood lays the foundation for discovery, healing, and forgiveness for the highest good of all concerned.

For a description of the information to send us when scheduling your session please see How Do I Prepare For a Session? on this page.


The Work

This part of the session involves the actual healing and communication work or the diet and nutritional evaluation to determine the best plan for your critter kid. This is when we also identify additional natural healing methods you can use for supporting your individual situation.


The Conclusion

During the conclusion you are told all the information that Leslie learned during the session. If it was a health, diet, and nutritional consultation you will receive detailed information outlining the plan designed. You will also be instructed how to best approach the transitional phase of changing your critter kid's diet.

If the consultation was a healing and communication session, Leslie covers everything in detail and provides you specific information on how you can help facilitate your critter kid's healing process. You will be taught powerful techniques for restoring wellness. Because of the volume of this information, and due to the unique nature of the healing and support processes you will be taught, a cassette tape is provided for your convenience. We find that the cassette tape assists clients in being able to more fully support their critter kid's path to wellness.

An added bonus: During the conclusion portion of the session your critter kid receives a second infusion of the healing and communication work that was done with them during the original healing and communication session. This is just another benefit of the healing work Leslie provides for her clients.

After being in a healing and communication session with your animal companion for an hour there is a lot of information to share with you. Because of this the conclusion portion of the session can last 30 to 60 minutes or longer. The length of time for the conclusion is directly related to the volume of information and the number of questions you may have. We want to insure that all your questions are fully answered and you have a clear understanding of how to best support the healing process of your individual situation.

The conclusion portion of the appointment is not always scheduled on the same day that the actual healing and communication or nutritional work is done. Having this flexibility provides an opportunity for the mystery and miracle of life to contribute to the syncronicity of each individual's healing process. In many situations, it is actually very beneficial for the healing session to be on one day and the conclusion to be scheduled a few days later. This is desirable because this allows the animal some time to integrate everything that occurred during the healing and communication session before he receives a second infusion of this healing work during the conclusion.


Should My Appointment be Long Distance or In Person?

Leslie has worked with clients and their animals from all across the country. Her list of international clientele is steadily growing. Certain circumstances require that a session be done long distance using photographs. If Leslie will be working with situations that include aggressive behavior, fear based behaviors or separation anxiety the best results will be achieved with long distance healing and communication work. In these situations, long distance sessions achieve the best results because they allow the animal to feel secure while remaining in a familiar environment that is recognized as being safe. It is important for the animal to feel relaxed while avoiding exposure to any external simulation that may trigger the source incident underlying the behaviors we are working to improve. For more information on the source incident please see the Behavior page of this Web site.

If you live in the Reno, Nevada area and want to meet Leslie the intake portion of the session can be done in person even if the actual work with the animal needs to be done long distance using a photograph. There is a minimal travel fee for an in person appointment.

 

Why Do I Need to Send a Photograph?

Many have asked, "How can Leslie communicate, connect with and transmit healing to an animal using a photograph?" If we think back to the era when photography was being developed in this country many Native Americans felt strongly about not having their pictures taken. It has been said that they believed that the camera captured their soul. While the camera does not steal a person's soul, what the camera does do is make an imprint of the energy signature or consciousness pattern of an individual. Then, using her special gifts, Leslie uses the photograph to connect and communicate with an animal as if they were sitting face-to-face.

If you do not have a photograph of the animal, Leslie can still assist you. A photo is not needed, but it is what she prefers.

How Do I Prepare For a Session?

Photographs

All long distance sessions are done using photographs of the animals involved. Photos may be emailed or sent through the US Postal Service. One photo should be a full body shot with another of the animal looking at the camera. If you have more than one critter kid in your home, please include photographs of everyone. The photos should be taken within the past year, and it is okay if there are other people or animals in the photograph.

If you do not want to send the actual photograph, you may take a color xerox or photocopy of your photographs and mail those to us. Your photos will be returned if you ask us to do so. However, many clients prefer that we keep photos on file for future appointments, or in case of an emergency.

For an explanation describing how Leslie connects with the animals long distance using a photograph see the Why Do I Need to Send a Photograph? on this page.

If you do not have a photograph of the animal, Leslie can still assist you. A photo is not needed, but it is what she prefers.


The Intake

The intake may be done either in writing, via email, or over the telephone. This section covers the information we request you provide in preparation for your first appointment with Leslie. For more information describing the importance of the intake see the Each Animal Session Has Three Parts section in the What Do I Need to Know About an Animal Session? on this page.


Healing and Communication

Please write a letter describing everything you want covered during the session. Include your concerns and everything that worries you. Ask all the questions you have, clearly explain the circumstances, and describe the situation or conditions you are requesting that Leslie work towards resolving. If you prefer to discuss your intake information with Leslie over the phone, please indicate this when scheduling your appointment.

If you know the background of the animal receiving this session, please include it. Sharing as much information as you are aware of helps Leslie to focus in on key experiences your animal companion has had. This can save time because it allows her to concentrate her efforts on healing these emotional wounds. If you have no background information, that's all right. Leslie's work will identify key source incidents.

After you have sent us your intake information you can familiarize yourself with some of the processes you will be learning during the conclusion by reading the following pages on this Web site:

"Do Your Words Paint Pictures" in the Articles section.

"Critter Connection Animal Initiations" on the Animal Initiations page.

"Healing Emotional Upsets and Behavior Issues at the Source" on the Behavior page.


Your Family

Since animals form unique relationships with each individual please include the following information. For all human family members or special friends, please list their names, ages, and relationship to you. Also, describe each person's relationship with the animal receiving this session.

If family members are no longer living at home, or a significant person has passed away, please mention this. The animals love each of us unconditionally. If a loved person leaves without an explanation, this can trouble an animal deeply.

If you have other pets in the family please include information about each of them. List their name, species, breed, age, and standing in the family. Describe the relationship each animal has with the one receiving this session.

Health, Diet, and Nutrition

If this session is being done in conjunction with a healing and communication session please include the background and family intake information described above.

In addition please fax us copies of recent blood work or other lab results if available. If symptoms are present please include information regarding your veterinarian's diagnosis. Describe a history of the symptoms you have observed along with a time table explaining the progression.

During a health, diet and nutrition consultation it is important for us to review the diet, snack foods, and nutritional supplements you are now feeding. If packaged food, canned food, snacks, or treats are fed, please send us the ingredient list for these. This can either be faxed to us, or you can list the ingredients in an email. A diet and nutritional consultation can usually last between 60 to 90 minutes.

Because we utilize a holistic approach to health and wellness, please consider having a healing and communication session done in conjunction with any health related consultation. More detailed information describing the benefits of including healing and communication work in conjunction with a health, diet and nutritional consultation can be found on the Behavior and Health pages of this Web site.


Healing Feather Destruction

Due to the detailed nature of the program designed for you to achieve the best results possible clients must prepay for a 150 minute session before they can receive the detailed questionnaire. This prepayment assures us that the client is truly committed to undertaking the mind-body approach when working to heal this complex issue.

After you have received and answered the questionnaire, if there is any additional information you want to include, please write Leslie a letter. Include your concerns and everything that worries you. Ask any questions you may have and clearly explain the circumstances. If there is a situation or condition in addition to the feather destruction that you want Leslie to work towards resolving please explain this.

If you have the capability to send us a video tape of your bird, that would help greatly. Please include footage of your bird's home environment, the living area, the bird's cage, and show the parrot interacting with others. This tape would be reviewed during a part of your scheduled appointment time.

For more information describing the importance of the intake see the Each Animal Session Has Three Parts section in the What Do I Need to Know About an Animal Session? on this page.

 


How Do I Schedule a Session?

To schedule your session you may call or email us. After we receive the appropriate intake information from you and your prepayment you will be contacted either by phone or email to schedule your appointment. If we will be contacting you by telephone please let us know the best days of the week and the best time to reach you. If you are outside of the Reno, Nevada area we will give you a quick call and ask you to call us right back.

During this brief phone call we will schedule the work and conclusion portions of your appointment. If we need to ask any questions to help clarify the written intake information you have already sent us we will do so. This part of the phone call will be a part of your intake appointment time.

Depending upon scheduling, the work and the conclusion portions of the appointment are not always set up for the same day. For a description explaining this please see the Each Animal Session Has Three Parts, The Conclusion section on this page.

It is our intention to provide our clients with superior service and care. We appreciate and respect our clients and are grateful for the opportunity to help you resolve your situations for the highest good of all concerned. As you graciously accept this from us, in return we ask that you be on time for your appointments and keep all payment agreements made with us. Mutual respect and trust are powerful cornerstones for every healing process and relationship.

 


How Do I Change or Cancel My Appointment?

Please understand that your appointment time has been set aside specifically for you and your critter kids. We ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice before your scheduled appointment time if you need to change or cancel your appointment. If you are canceling your appointment and time and resources have already been used to begin working on your case, you will need to be charged for this. We understand that emergencies can occur and we endeavor to be accommodating when rescheduling your appointment. If you miss your appointment without notifying us you will need to be charged accordingly.

When Do I Schedule a Follow-up Session?


Each animal heals at his own rate. This makes each animal's path to wellness uniquely his own. As with any transformational process, each animal can only progress at a pace which best suits his ability to embrace change and willingly integrate the experience of the healing and communication session. Working with the information you learned during the conclusion and applying the processes you are taught is how you truly can help nurture and support this healing process. During this formative period each animal develops new beliefs about himself and his environment, while adopting new ways of interacting with others.

After a session you will notice a difference in your critter kids. Sometimes the effects of a session are subtle with improvements being more noticeable as the days and the weeks pass. While for others major changes happen soon after a session enabling the emotional healing process to move forward quickly.

When observing your critter kids after a session you should be watching for any type of improvement. Typically you will see acceptable changes occur, and these behaviors will progressively continue as the healing process advances. The key is to notice when the improvements in behavior plateau. When you notice that your critter kid has stopped improving - this is the time to schedule a follow up healing and communication session.

Once the plateau has been reached, if too much time passes before scheduling a follow-up healing and communication session the animal begins losing some of the forward momentum gained. The time frame for scheduling a follow-up healing and communication varies greatly from individual to individual. Some animals benefit from a follow-up session as soon as four to six weeks, while for others the time frame can stretch to three to four to six months or longer. The key is to pay attention to the progress your critter kid makes. And when the improvement in behavior plateaus - schedule a follow-up appointment as soon as possible.

We look forward to helping you with your critter kids.
