Testimonials from happy clients:

I found Angela’s session really informative and I learnt a lot from it. I think having some understanding of grief and bereavement in our clients is something that we could all be better equipped to deal with. In my experience it is going to become increasingly important in small animal practice.

XL Equine, St Boniface, Crediton
Thank you so much for your input at yesterday’s workshop for equine owners. It was clear to see that you had given a lot of thought to the event for which I am very grateful. A skim through the feedback forms suggests the same positive feedback.

Business Manager, XL Equine
Understanding the grief process with useful analogies was really helpful.

During a workshop on ‘Coping with Loss’
I attended a course run by Angela and felt that it was extremely beneficial. It gave me a real insight into helping understand the emotional difficulties others may face through bereavement and the various processes that can take place. Angie was both professional and very organised and conducted the course with dignity and compassion. I felt empowered to better deal with bereavement afterwards and would thoroughly recommend Angela in helping to guide one through what can be a very challenging emotion.

Donkey Welfare Adviser, The Donkey Sanctuary
I was apprehensive prior to the training session as it is a very sensitive, raw subject especially to discuss in front of colleagues. Angela ensured the session felt safe and secure and delivered the training in a very kind, sensitive and open way. After the session I felt very glad I attended and feel it will equip me in dealing with bereaved callers in a calmer, understanding way.

Welfare PA/Office Supervisor, The Donkey Sanctuary
I always felt uneasy when people who came into the Visitors’ Centre to ask about memorials got upset. I found that Angela’s workshop really helped me to understand about grief and to feel more confident in knowing how to respond when people become a bit tearful.

I just wanted to say a big thank-you for giving a great talk on Saturday. The audience turnout was great and you did a fantastic job – it is an area that previous British Equine Veterinary Association congresses have not really covered and I know that many people in the audience will now feel much more confident dealing with this difficult area.

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your Bereavement Presentation and found it very helpful. I had done a course previously, so knew that you did this, but it was useful to hear to presentation that you did at BEVA.

Julie Mutter
Vet Department Co-ordinator/Isolation Nurse, The Donkey Sanctuary.
Judging from the enthusiastic reception, you did a wonderful talk! I am so grateful to you for coming over and sharing your knowledge. It seems there is a real hunger for knowledge about this topic either as formal talks or workshops.

Alex Thiemann
Veterinary Surgeon, Veterinary Dept., The Donkey Sanctuary.
Angie presents a difficult and emotive subject with such empathy and clarity – so very helpful in dealing with challenging situations that many of us feel ill-equipped to deal with.
