    Mia has been incredibly helpful via Zoom sessions, competently, kindly and carefully coaching me through how to use the Trust Technique (TT) to help my dogs.   I am a fairly competent owner dog trainer but found myself at a loss with a middle aged adoptee who had a fear of flies that was becoming worse…

    I just had my first session with Mia. Wow is all I can say. She really listened so deeply to what my dog and I were needing and worked with us with non-judgement and grace supporting us both in resolving a complex issue. My boy relaxed into the session and showed us both very clearly…

  • Jeanette Woolerton

    I recently had the privilege of experiencing a Trust Technique session with Mia. The focus was on my beloved mare, Kiah, who has always been reticent to let others stroke or care for her in my absence. My goal was to help Kiah trust another person enough to feel comfortable being lightly handled by them,…

    Our life with our Mini Australian Shepherd, Alfie, is so greatly improved and Alfie’s experience of the world is settled, calm and positive now. I highly recommend the Trust Technique.
